25 Meatless Dinners for Lent
With Lent upon us, it’s always great to have a variety of ideas for meatless dinners for Lent. Here is a collection of my favorite 25 meatless dinners for Lent that your entire family will enjoy.
Lent starts tomorrow and if you are Catholic like me, that means observing the no-meat guidelines on Ash Wednesday and all Fridays throughout Lent. There are tons of amazing meatless options out there these days, but I thought I would share some of my favorite meatless dinners for Lent. In this roundup you will find soups, egg based dishes, seafood, as well as the spectrum from light dinners (or lunches) to more hearty fare. Basically, this list will carry you through the season of Lent with a little something for everyone.

I always thought meatless meals were boing, but you proved me wrong!
All these meals look very vibrant, definitely trying the Asian vegetable noodle soup and the asparagus meal! Thanks for these, love from Nepal! xoxo
I’m so glad these look good to you, Ushmana! Thank you so much for stopping by! xoxo Emily

I just subscribed to your blog, and wow! So glad I did. The hook that got me was your recipe for “Slow Cooker Ham & Bean Soup” – it’s happening tomorrow morning. I CANNOT wait. And, by the way… you’re adorable. I really look forward to being acquainted with Jelly Toast. Thank you
