We’re almost halfway through Lent! If you’re feeling uninspired for your Friday meals, we’ve got a few ideas that might help. These Lenten recipes are a mixture of seafood and vegetarian recipes, so there’s something for everyone.
Since bacon and eggs are out of the question, make Carla’s vegetarian chard and fried egg toast for breakfast. But it’s not limited to a breakfast meal; serve it with roasted veggies or a salad for lunch or a light dinner.
Grilled cheese was a Lenten staple in Alyssa’s house. We love Kraft singles as much as anyone, but her vegetarian Italian grilled cheese with tomato sauce is a slightly different take on the classic.
Alyssa’s honey glazed salmon makes a quick and easy main course. Pair it with roasted asparagus or a green salad with a miso-ginger dressing for a healthy meal.
Carla’s roasted broccoli with shrimp is another health-conscious meal that can be ready in 30 minutes. Serve it with brown rice for a complete meal.
If you’re not as concerned about the health aspect, satisfy your carb craving with Carla’s decadent vegetarian creamy, garlicky mushroom rigatoni.
And if your Friday night is more of a date night, try Alyssa’s crab and leek risotto and impress your date. Serve it with some crusty Italian bread and a leafy salad with a balsamic vinaigrette.
