A reader asked me a few weeks ago to share some of our favorite dinners for Fridays during Lent. I thought that was a great idea!
Hot Tomato Grits
Mother has been making this for years! We usually have it for breakfast, but it absolutely works for a meat free dinner as well. Find the recipe HERE.
Stuffed Red Peppers
This is another trusty recipe from my parents. It is SO good! When we aren’t going meat free, grilled chicken is great with it. Find the recipe HERE.
Of course pizza is a Lenten staple! As we get closer to Easter and the weather turns nicer, we love to take it out to grill on the Big Green Egg. Find the recipe HERE. (Not that you need a recipe… also, I now pretty much just buy my dough rolled out in the publix bakery.)
Bang Bang Shrimp and Fried Rice
This one had fallen off of my rotation until I started thinking through this post. We all used to love it and I am definitely bringing it back soon! Find the recipe HERE.
Asian Noodle Salad
It’s usually still pretty chilly here at the beginning of Lent, so soups are made a LOT. My two favorite soup recipes both call for bacon as a topping, so I just serve without the bacon on Friday. This one sneaks in some extra veggies: Country Potato Soup. And, this one is a more richer, indulgent version: Baked Potato Soup.
And, when all else fails, meatless spaghetti and grilled cheese are completely acceptable options as well!! If you have a favorite, feel free to share it here.
