We Orthodox Christians will not begin Lent for a few more weeks, since our calendar is different - and our Lent starts with "Green Monday" or "Clean Monday" rather than on a Wednesday.
Many Western Churches will have Lenten Potlucks during Lent - often where vegetarian or vegan meals are featured to give a greater compassion for the world's poor, or to encourage Christians to live more simply & with greater penitence.
So I thought I'd link some recipes that are Lenten-Potluck friendly:
|Banana Walnut Muffins|
|Greek Bean Soup - can be served from Slow Cooker|
|Homemade Yeast Bread|
|Veggies & Dips|
|Lentil Soup - can be served from Slow Cooker|
|Cauliflower & Capers (good at room temperature)|
|Orange Beet Salad (add dressing just before serving)|
|Homemade Salsa with Chips|
|Better than Coleslaw|
