Resurrection soup
This traditional magiritsa recipe is the dinner prepared and served in almost every household in Greece on Holy Saturday, while the main Easter meal served on Easter Sunday is spit roasted lamb. The authentic magiritsa recipe is designed to use the leftover parts, of the lamb so that nothing went to waste. Magiritsa is served after the midnight church services to break the 40 day Great Lent period and is considered to be best meal after the fasting period to gradually ease your digestive system back into its meat eating habits.
This year, because of the Covid-19 pandemic, there will be no open air celebrations. Churches will be shut to the public and everyone will have to stay indoors.

The Resurrection soup is really a nice one and filling, but it takes a lot of time to prepare because of the offal, it has to be cleaned very well. But the result is very rewarding. I have the recipe for you here https://www.mygreekdish.com/recipe/traditional-magiritsa-recipe-greek-easter-soup/

You are welcome Jillian. I hope the virtual cake was enough for everyone.

This meal does look like one to celebrate with, Marinam (if one likes offal and tripe!). I have enjoyed your learning about your traditions.

It's your birthday???? May your day be filled with good things!!

I agree with Nev and Jaklien its is interesting to learn new things about each other’s culture. Thanks so much Birthday girl.

Thank you Jaklien. This is a soup for the few who like to eat left overs and offal. Very few people in Greece like offal and tripe.

Welcome Neville. People who seek to learn new thing all the time never grow really old. They have young minds.

Jaklien

This is a soup for the real Christians.

Nev, I've learned a lot here.
The problem of the elderly: remember now huh
