It’s that time of year when many of us make some changes in our lives as part of the Lenten season. I know several people who are giving up meat and many who will be adhering to a more simple diet as they reflect on the meaning of the season. Here are some recipes that are meatless and pretty easy to make. I know I plan on making several of these over the next few weeks. I hope you will too.
These Fish Cakes can be made with any fish really. You can even used canned salmon. Everyone in my house loves these. Perfect for Fridays during Lent.
Of course I was going to provide you with a shocking green recipe! My Spinach and Pear Soup has so many great flavors. If you leave out the blue cheese and yogurt, it turns from vegetarian to vegan.
Asparagus and Brie Orzo is my suggestion for meatless pasta. Use another veggie if you aren’t fond of Asparagus. You can also omit the cheese to keep this vegan, too.
Does your family enjoy Lentils? Then how about these tasty Curried Lentils? I happen to love this recipe and make it for myself pretty often. You can add apples to it to give a sweet contrast to the curry and any spices you add. Delicious!
I really love salmon! This Maple Glazed Salmon has a slightly sweet flavor. It’s great on the grill but you can bake it too, if you simply can’t get yourself to grill when it’s below 70.
I don’t know about you, but I am happy to have Lent upon us. It reminds me that it’s time to renew myself. And it also is a pleasant reminder that spring is very close.
