Italian Tradition - Lentil Soup after midnight
Erika has picked another great recipe. Why not try an Italian tradition this year? Lentils are served on New Year's Eve after midnight. The lentils, with their coinlike shape, represent luck and prosperity. The magic of lentils is in their round shape thought to resemble Roman coins, therefore symbolizing money and prosperity. So traditionally, Italians consider eating lentils to bring good luck and fortune to the family for the upcoming year.
