The Holy Week It is a magnificent opportunity to get to know each other inside. Also regarding feedingwhere the cod meets the pavías, everything is paired in conditions, and for dessert appears a very sweet french toast. It happens that in one of the most popular festivals in Spain, especially in Andalusia, we do not walk with simplicity when it comes to dispatching the belly well. Take note of the traditional foods to eat in Holy Week.
After having lived most of the days of Lentwith the Catholic tradition of observing the Lenten fast on Fridays, it is not a bad idea to remember the best dishes of our land.
The experts behind the kitchen divide the dishes between those of Holy Week with those of Easter, where the consumption of meat is already allowed to enjoy Resurrection Sunday.
What stews succeed at Easter?

Without a doubt, it is one of the most traditional stews that exist throughout the Holy Weekand although its preparation is more modest than expected, its result can be more than satisfactory.
If you want to prepare it, take a look at the ingredients you will need for a family-friendly and well-loaded portion of chickpeas with spinach, so you can invite whoever you want:
- Garbanzo beans
- Garlic cloves
- sweet paprika
- Olive oil
Then we find the potaje de vigilia, which is another spoon dish that is to lick your fingers. In fact, it is considered another of the star dishes of Holy Week.
Another very typical dish of our grandmothers on these dates is garlic soup, where you can dip the bread as many times as you want before you get thirsty. You can change the chicken broth for a vegetable broth if eaten on an empty stomach.

There is life beyond spoons, although the truth is that they predominate more for merely essential reasons. It happens that then there are fantastic dishes to enjoy:
