7 Meatless Recipes for Lent

This is it - the season of Lent, the time to give up meat!  The time that vegetarians rejoice as we can share our favorite recipes with the "meat-eating public"!  Ash Wednesday, Good Friday and all the Fridays of Lent are to be "meat free" and that includes beef and chicken, because abstaining from meat is a way to show sacrifice to God - and traditionally meat was a luxury!  So this is the perfect time to make that vegetarian meal you've always wanted your family to try - and if you need some more ideas, take a peek here!
