Padua Students in Action Have Saved You a Seat at Our Lenten Table - Week 1
Lent is the perfect time to reflect on how we are called into solidarity in the journey of others. This year, our Students in Action (SIA) have taken on the awesome pursuit of educating our community on how we can minister through prayer, good works and monetary sacrifice. One of their initiatives is sharing easy and inexpensive, meatless recipes. Join junior Emma Ward as she shows you how to make pupusas de queso below!
Catholic Relief Services (CRS) Rice Bowl has collected and published dozens meatless recipes from around the world to promote global solidarity. This week we stand in solidarity with those affected by natural or human-caused disasters such as hurricanes, tsunamis, tornados, earthquakes, wildfires, or the recent snowstorms across the US. This pupusa recipe is from El Salvador, one of the countries in Central America badly hit by the category 4 and 5 hurricanes Eta and Iota within the span of only two weeks, in November 2020.
The recipe is very simple to make, and can be dressed up with some delicious curtido and salsa roja. Emma says,
“The pupusas were really easy to make and they tasted delicious! It was a perfect snack or a side dish to your meal! It was also very cost effective; everything ended up being less than $10!"
You can access the recipe, and many others, on the CRS Rice Bowl website. If you choose to make one of the recipes, consider donating to CRS the money saved by not purchasing meat, to help CRS in their global disaster relief efforts and other relief programs.
