Meatless Menus for Lent

Lent season is upon us. I’ve been getting a lot of emails asking for some meatless menu ideas for Friday dinners. Today I am sharing seven Meatless Dinner Ideas for Lent to get you through the season. I know it is hard to think of things to make that aren’t a Filet O’Fish sandwich.

This collection of Lent recipes gives you delicious ideas that will help you go meatless, so you’re not scrambling to figure out recipes each week. We got easy and delicious lenten meals that we know you are going to love!

I’ve got soups, pasta casseroles, pizza, salads, pasta salads, and bread. In a couple of the recipes, you will need to omit the meat. We make them without meat all the time. The recipes are just as delicious without the meat; I promise!

Do yourself a favor, skip the drive-thru and check out the quick, easy, meatless meals we’ve cooked up.
