Nistisima means fasting food for those of Orthodox faith. Mostly this means giving up meat and dairy, and eating lots of fresh vegetables, pulses and grains in their stead. During a time when so many of us are looking at our own diets and ways in which to live a simpler lifestyle, these recipes and traditions feel more relevant than ever. Recipes include manaqish swirled buns; spiced pumpkin and raisin pies; fried aubergine, tahini and molasses; grilled squash with herbs and dukkah; wild green stew; and pistachio and cardamom halva.
