Shrove Tuesday:

* Shrove Tuesday ended the winter entertaining season that began with Christmas and began a great fast (lasting until Easter). Shrove Tuesday is celebrated in Greek and Roman Catholic countries with a high degree of solemnity. In Estonia has persisted eating pea soup and Shrove Tuesday bread.

* Carnivals with corresponding masks have emerged from the ward off evil spirits, with the aftermath of a sledgehammer in West Estonia, that is, bringing a crop doll from family to family. Mostly it was a stuffed man figure in a straw. It is believed that the cataract is a continuation of earlier wild cultivation. The wild straw has been thrown to the touchpad in the dark forest and tied to a tree trunk. This guaranteed grain luck.

* On Shrove Tuesday, the hair was cut, as was the tail of the horse - then long and strong hair, like horsehair, grows. Also, you had to comb hear at least seven times.

* On the eve of the day, the single girls themselves could go and find a partner- denial was forbidden.

3 onion

250 g yellow dried peas

5 cloves of garlic

2 tablespoons coconut oil

1 tablespoon miso paste

a drop of smoked syrup - optional

3 tablespoons of vegetable yogurt

some fresh parsley

Put one tablespoon of coconut oil on the bottom of the pot. When the oil is hot add the onion. Brown the onions for 3 minutes and then add the garlic. Heat onions and garlic for another 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Then add the carrot. If necessary, add some water if you see the onion stick to the pot. Fry the carrots for 5-7 minutes. Then strain the peas and add them to the pot. Pour in 2 liters of water. Boil on low heat for 1.5 hours.
