This week is the first week of Lent for Christians following the Western church.
Although we are not fasting this year at home, we still made some Lent recipes.
For more inspiration recipes from the blog, I have posted an old collection of vegan and vegetarian recipes from my blog to try. Continue reading
I’d like to take the opportunity and with those who are fasting a Blessed Lent.
I, myself, haven’t fasted in a few years and haven’t abstained from meats or dairies for longer. The thing is, I don’t usually cook with a lot of meats. Most of my recipes are either vegetarian, vegan, or can be altered to be either one.
For the son of a butcher, and a whole family of butchers, it is blasphemous for me to quit meats. I did quit red meats for2 years and I was given a hard time, even though I sometimes used to cook for myself or ask mom for a meat-less or chicken version of whatever she’s cooking. I decided to finally end it when I was tempted by mom’s spicy barbequed kababs. Now I am back to meats regularly. And allow me to say, a bit more than ever. I am a fan of beef burgers now, I ate barbecued meat, I have no problem with pork, and I enjoyed beef curries. Weird, isn’t it?
For now, I have not made up my mind whether I will be abstaining from a certain food group but for those of you who have, I present you with this list of 20 vegetarian and vegan recipes to cook during lent:
Lunch or Dinner
Creamy Cauliflower Soup (vegan)
