These delicious 11 Lent Dinner Recipes will get your family through the Lenten Season with almost no complaints!

I generally have a hard time thinking of a good family dinner recipe for Friday nights. It’s the end of the week, everyone is tired, and I usually don’t feel like cooking. Anyone else feel me on this?

That sentiment seems to get exacerbated during Lent, when we choose to fast on Fridays and abstain from eating meat during the 40 days leading up to Easter. I really love the idea of mindfully giving up meat as a sacrifice, and Lent can become a really special time for our family as we talk with the girls about our religious beliefs.

But that doesn’t make finding Lent Dinner Recipes any more fun than finding regular Friday night recipes.

So as much as I do enjoy meatless Fridays, I wanted to find a way to make things a bit easier on myself during Lent (and hopefully help you out as well!)- I have rounded up some awesome Lent dinner recipes meatless recipes from me and some of my favorite bloggers!

As Catholics during Lent, we do eat fish, but not any other kind of meat. So in this roundup of recipes, you’ll find some seafood- like Mom Endeavors’ Cilantro Lime Tilapia with Quinoa.

You’ll also find some breakfast recipes that we eat for dinner during Lent- I’m looking at you avocado toast with Costa Rican chimichurri! And the Costa Rican tamal de masa!
