Vegetarian Polpettone alla Genovese

By |November 24, 2021|Categories: Entrées, Italian, Recipes, Sheet Pan, Vegetarian|

In Liguria, the region where I grew up and where I live, the Appennini mountains drop directly into the Mediterranean Sea with no flat land in between. The natural landscape is absolutely stunning, but this leaves basically no space at all for farms and ranches. This is why historically most of our diet is based on fish and vegetables. Even today, most of the traditional Ligurian dishes contain very little to no meat at all.  For this very reason, even though in the rest of the country polpettone is a meat-based preparation, for us in Genoa is a delicious vegetarian main dish made with potatoes and green beans.

Coming from the Eastern Mediterranean (Lebanon and Syria), tabbouleh cools the senses and is a brilliant complement to spicy  or strong flavored foods.  It is wonderful as a lunch with grape leaves, olives and roasted red peppers.
