Every year I look for meatless recipes for my family during this Greek Easter Week. It’s the beginning of the fasting season which lasts for forty days. And with a family, this can become overwhelming if you don’t have a number of recipes to pull from. If you need to explore more recipes look under Lenten Dishes on my blog. But, I gathered a few new dishes you may enjoy adding to your family recipe list below.

The Lent season is strict in that no animal products are to be used in our dishes. So basically, you’re on a vegan diet for 40 days. This is very hard to do for a family, so I do the best I can. Many years we just practiced this fasting for the one week before Easter. I try and do vegetarian with the use of eggs and cheese for the kiddos. I have selected a few recipes I love to make over and over in hope you will enjoy making them as standards in your home.

Chickpea Soup with Kale and Vegetable Broth

One of my favorite soups using fresh or canned vegetable stock with hearty chickpeas and kale. The recipe can be found on this Post.

Mixed Greens Salad with Warm Pomegranate Dressing

This green salad has many greens for a quick pick me up and healthy and tasty alternative to lettuce. The dressing is poured on warm to soften the chopped the rough greens. Recipe can be found on this Post.
