Foodie Friday: 8 Meatless Recipes for Lent

First Friday of the month:  Mom-Cook / Recipes

It was Ash Wednesday the other day, the first day of Lent.  I attended the mass held at the girl's school and was reminded of the meaning of this holy season. The priest said that Lent is about alms giving, prayer, and sacrifice.  Two forms of sacrifice that Christians practice are abstinence and fasting.  It doesn't have to be just about food.  We can all choose to abstain or fast from wanting and doing things that we like, or giving up something for someone in need. For this post, it's about abstaining from eating meat.

Fusilli in Tomato Sauce with Sardines

Honestly, it's hard for me to give up meat, or a meal, more so to fast. But I'm willing and able to abstain for eating meat every Friday.  If you can abstain for 40 days, why not?

I have here 8 recipes from the past year, prepared with no meat, just to give you some ideas on what to include in your menus this Lenten season. Of course, you can cook these anytime of the year. Maybe some of you have already seen or read these food posts, or maybe tried them already.  Thank you for that!
