Ethnic Dishes Provide Way To Stretch Food Dollars By Jeanne Lesem NEW YORK markets on the Lower East side of Manhattan sell pigs ears, feet and tails, meatless beef bones and pork skin from which the fat has been re- moved almost entirely. A restaurant on .the fashion- able Upper East side suggests that its patrons take home ready-cooked duck and goose gizzards for their pets. Somewhere between 14th and 75th streets, people have forgotten how overcrowded countries and the poor every- where learned long ago to use even the skin, bones and in- nards of meat and fowl to enrich diets that are heavily dependent on vegetable pro- tein. It's not being suggested that everyone or anyone start eating pig ears, although they are a common ingredient in some really delicious West In- dian stews. But ethnic and na- tional dishes in general repre- sent an appetizing way of stretching food budgets during this period of record high prices. Macaroni products are an obvious example. Americans usually prepare them with meat or seafood sauces and, occasionally, with cheese. But in Italy they're just as likely to be served with vegetable sauces instead zucchini, cauliflower, lentils or broccoli, for instance. One Italian len- ten sauce uses two kinds of nuts (a good alternate source of some raisins and grated cheese (more good Dried beans are another good example. A French Cas- soulet is unsweetened baked beans to which you add as much or as little meat or fowl as your budget and conscience permit. Preserved goose is a traditional ingredient, but pieces of duck, chicken, left- over smoked or fresh ham or even pork skin and-or sau- sages could be used instead. Peanuts belong in the dried bean class because they're ac- tually legumes instead of nuts. We treat them largely as snack food but African cooks use them as a protein-ex- tender in stews and pound them into paste for rich sauces to make meat go far- ther. As for gizzards, they may be pet food here, but by Chin- ese standards they're delica- cies to be reserved for hon- ored guests. Of course, the cook trims away gristle before slicing and stirfrying. Pea soup is one of the Neth- erlands' national dishes, thick and rich enough to make an entire meal. There are as many different recipes for it as there are Dutch families, some of whom use pigs feet to enrich the soup. But it's, not uncommon to find half a pound of ham or frankfurters as the only meat ingredient. In the Middle East, chick peas, lentils and other dried legumes are widely used in salads and stews that contain, little or no meat. Rice and corn meal also are international budget stretchers. Paella is a Spanish casserole that uses rice with bits of meat, fowl and-or sea- food. America's Jambalaya, Spanish Rice and Hoppin' John are variations on that theme, with the latter two generally meatless. Tamales and tamale pie make a little ground or chopped meat or poultry into many servings with a corn meal crust or coating. In Italy, the same basic grain product is used for Gnocchi, or dumplings, and Polenta, or corn meal mush. Both usually contain grated cheese or are served with it.
