Fanesca, Quito, Ecuador, April 7th, 2018

Fanesca is a traditional soup in Ecuador usually consumed during the Holy Week, or Semana Santa. It is not too visible in pictures but there were lots of beans at the bottom of the bowl, and they say they use 12 different kinds of beans, representing the twelve apostles of Jesus. And one of the side dishes contains salted cod, or bacalao, symbolizing the Jesus.

As hinted by the appearance, it was thick and creamy. They say the recipe varies a lot regionally, so I’m happy to try it again at different places.
