Meatless Fridays

 For Lent, some give up meat on Fridays. I was wondering if any of you have suggestions for meals on those days for those that need it?

I modified this recipe with salmon filets in exchange for the Italian sausage and it worked GREAT!!

Also, my husband gave up CARBS for Lent, so I also omitted the pasta and added some zuchini to the veggie mix - again, worked great and was more filling than I expected!

I don't have my recipe on me at the time but I have made a meatless chili before and it came out susprisingly awesome! I will look for the recipe. Even my husband who loves meat enjoyed it!

This is my favorite meatless recipe.  We have it regularly, and we just can't get enough!  It seems like I've shared this recipe on here a million times, lol!

We usually eat beans on Fridays during Lent - nachos, bean burritos, black bean soup, etc.
