Meat Free Recipes for Lent

Happy Ash Wednesday! If you see me, NO, I did not fall down or rub dirt on my face--I've been to Ash Wednesday Mass. Ash Wednesday is the kick off to Lent, the season that precedes Easter. In the Catholic Faith, we typically give up something and we also abstain from eating meat on Fridays. That is usually a problem for me day to day but for some reason all I want to eat on Fridays during Lent are cheeseburgers. To that end, I've compiled a list for you of my favorite, meatless meals. Some of them call for chicken broth so just substitute with water or white wine! Hope you enjoy!!

Shrimp and Grits
We may give up meat, but seafood is a-ok!  I know I just posted this recipe recently but guys, it is that good!

Grilled Cheese and Caramelized Onions
Are you drooling yet? This is the perfect Lenten Friday lunch and would also make a great bed time snack!
