Peasant Foods are rustic, traditional dishes that are specific to a particular culture and made from inexpensive and easily accessible ingredients and are usually homey and humble fare.
Peasant Foods were so called as they were the diet of peasants, tenant or poorer farmers and their farm workers, and other cash-poor people, making them perfect for today's economy.
Characteristic recipes often include hearty one-dish meals like soups, stews and casseroles, vegetables, beans, breads and pastas, so it should be easy to find a Tessa Kiros recipe to make and enjoy!
