Beginning March 2, Catholics around the world will observe Lent, a 40 day season of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving that begins on Ash Wednesday and ends at sundown on Holy Thursday April 14. This period of preparation leads to the celebration of Christs’ Resurrection at Easter. Traditionally, practitioners abstain from eating meat on Fridays. Here are a few non-meat, non-boring meals that aren’t fish!
Take a culinary trip to the streets of a typical Middle Eastern city with Roasted Cauliflower Pitas with Zhug and Garlic Tahini from Half-Baked Harvest.
Celebrate the bounty of locally grown, seasonal vegetables and make Spring Risotto with Asparagus, Peas, Parsley and Lemon from the editors of Food52.
