Vegetarian Lent Fridays

As a Catholic, I do not eat meat on Fridays during Lent.  I wanted to give all of you Catholics out there some great meat free options that are also healthy and simple. Enjoy!

Here are some of my favorites:

Healthified Tuna Salad

Hummus and pita chips with cheese and a big salad

Shrimp and Couscous Stir Fry

Grilled Portobello Burgers and Strawberry Balsamic Salad

Pumpkin Soup

Vegetable Lasagna

Spicy Healthy Alfredo

Skinny Mexican Layer Dip

What are some of your favorite vegetarian meals?
