my favorite is shrimp sauted in garlic and oil with a little lemon and herbs and then thrown over spaghetti--maybe a little cheese--yum!

To imitate findinghope a little bit, saute shrimp, a couple minced cloves of garlic, and some halved pea pods in oil for 3 minutes. Add a drizzle of toasted sesame oil and/or soy sauce.

Serve on cooked rice or toss with spaghetti noodles.

You could also add a handful of fresh spinach when you're done cooking. The heat of the shrimp-veggie mixture will wilt it nicely.

Hummus and pita bread, vegetarian Indian food (saag paneer, chana masala, aloo methi, dal, etc.), sushi. Though the latter isn't really in the Lenten spirit.

One of my daughter's favorites is to fry up spaghetti and then add scrambled egg. Simple and easy and meat free! We have it with salad or steamed green veggies of some sort.

Any kinds of beans and rice make for a fulfilling and delicious meal -- great protein.


In Louisiana, we cooked red beans (kidney beans) and served them over rice. I often cook black beans, and my Mother loves a big pot of those huge limas. You can leave the meat, generally sausage or a ham bone, out of the pot, and use fresh herbs and spices -- a little S&P, some fresh rosemary and thyme, a bay leaf. Marjarom is good, as is sage. Put the beans on, early in the morning, and let them simmer all day. Keep the beans covered with water as they cook, not as much water as you might do for a soup, but enough to keep the beans covered in the pot. Some people soak the dried beans overnight, but I don't find that necessary -- just be sure to rinse them very well. Cook a pot of rice to serve with the beans. Garnish the beans with sour cream and grated cheeses. A nice compliment to the black beans is also diced fresh tomatoes, diced fresh bell peppers, and diced sweet onion. Let people put as much or as little on top of their dish as they choose. Guacomole goes nicely with the black beans, too.

Serve with bread, or crackers, and a salad of your choosing, maybe even a fruit salad.


I also make an easy, easy quiche we all like. Buy a large carton of the eggbeaters, with the peppers and onion in it, add a little milk, season-taste, and pour into a pie shell. You can add whatever you like, including 1/2 lb. ground sausage (but not for Lent), sliced mushrooms, broccoli florets, etc. I stir-fry (the meat) and veggies, until just tender, before adding them to the quiche. Top with 1/2 to 1 cup of your favorite grated cheese(s). Bake at 350 until done, usually about 35 - 40 minutes. You can also do this with about 4-6 eggs, scrambled, and poured into the pie shell, too.

After the pie has been in the oven, say 15 minutes, check the crust. You may need to cover the edges of the pie crust with thin strips of foil to keep it from browning too much. I also put the pie pan on a cookie sheet to bake it.

Great choices above!!! Eggplant parmesan, quiches, veggie stir fry, tomato soup with grilled cheese sandwiches, pinto beans with slices of raw onion and cornbread to name a few. Getting hungry!

Vegetable Pancakes - Shredded zucchini, mushrooms, onions, garlic, potatoes (whatever you want or have on hand) along with a bit of shredded cheese, egg and seasoned dry bread crumbs. Form into a patty about as big as your palm and pan fry in a little butter or olive oil.
