Meals for Lent

Written by McDonald, T.  |  Date 24th of February 2021  

Lent is a period of fasting and repentance.  Sometimes people give up something that they like as an offering to God and in order to spend more time with God in prayer.  For most of us, the fast means one meal with two small snacks that wouldn't make a meal if added together.

Meal ideas for Lent

Since the idea is to keep meals simple, i have stuck with how my Nan taught me, which is no eggs or dairy throughout the duration of Lent.  For us vegans, this means no egg or dairy alternatives and no mock meats on Wednesday and Friday.  However, many will just stick to eating less and giving up something.

Latin Fried Potato Salad

This is one of my favourite meals.  Full of flavour goodness and taste.  This is a light meal that will keep you going through the day.

Caramelised Apple And Tempeh

Basic dish that you can add to with veg and potato or even pasta if you need.  A very light meal for lent that has good levels of protein and calcium.

Tempeh And Mushroom

Basic and simple meal that you can add bits to such as new potatoes and some more veg.  Very light meal ideal for Lent.  Has good levels of protein and calcium.  Great tasting!

Carpenter's Soup 

Light meal that is full of flavour.  Very simple dish with green lentils and cabbage in a vegan horseradish liquid.


Baked Potato

Classic meal and easy to prepare.  This comes with home made coleslaw, but you can add any topping that you like.   


Cauliflower Steak and Chips

Diffidently a great dinner with a variety of sauces that you can make for it.  Hearty and fun with an amazing taste to keep you going through Lent.
