Stumped about what to make for dinner on a meatless Lenten Friday? No need to fret, because our eight-meal planner has you covered!

Between Ash Wednesday, February 14, and Good Friday, March 29, there are eight days in which Catholics are required by the Church to abstain from meat. We have all been caught unprepared on a Lenten Friday evening. Let’s face it — eating scrambled eggs or takeout pizza can get pretty boring after a few weeks.

Don’t fret, however, because Aleteia has eight-meal plan covering dinners for Ash Wednesday and the following seven Fridays of Lent. We have chosen eight meatless dinners that are easy to prepare and full of flavor. Plus, each recipe article will include bonus recipes just in case our main selections don’t catch your fancy, along with a few words of wisdom that will helpfully make your Lenten journey more fruitful.

New recipes will appear every Tuesday morning, so bookmark this page so that you will have time to shop for ingredients. Of course, we welcome your own meatless meal recipes in the comments below.

Check out the PHOTO GALLERY to view our selections.
