Meatless Menus for Lent

Lent season is upon us. I’ve been getting a lot of emails asking for 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 have easy and delicious lenten meals that we know you will love!

I’ve got soups, pasta casseroles, pizza, salads, pasta salads, and bread. You will need to omit the meat in a couple of the recipes. 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.
