Vegan and Vegetarian Recipes for Lent

This is a slightly updated repost of an old list, reposted in time for Lent. If you're going vegetarian for Lent, hopefully this list will give you a leg up on menu planning.

So, here's the list, separated into vegan, vegetarian and pesco-vegetarian recipes. I've included links to recipes where I have them. (Please note: if the linked recipes include egg substitutes, or low-fat/no-fat cheeses, I recommend using the real things instead.) The starred recipes are our particular favorites here at the Snell house. Remember that a big loaf of bread on the side almost always makes kids cheerful about having veggie soup again. :)

Vegan Recipes
-Brown Rice w/ Black Beans
-Peanut Butter Sauce w/ Noodles and Veggies
-Split Pea Soup (make w/ veg. broth and w/o ham)
-Lentil Soup

Vegetarian Recipes
-Broccoli and Three Cheese Calzones (serve w/ marinara sauce) *
-Huevos Rancheros Tostados (use salsa instead of "picante sauce") *
-Pasta Margherita
-Linguine w/ Black Bean Sauce (cheese in the pesto?)
-Skillet Vegetables on Cheese Toast (you can use flavored cream cheese instead of goat cheese) *
-Cheese and Onion Bread Casserole

Pesco-Veg Recipes
-Crispy Salmon Cakes with Lemon/Pepper Mayo (I use pepper instead of capers)

peace of Christ to you,
Jessica Snell
