 50+ Easy Lent Recipes You'll Love to Make in 2021

Lent is right around the corner. You know what that means…

Lots of fish. 

With certain restrictions on what Catholics can and cannot eat during Lent, fish is pretty much a staple this time of year. Same with cheese pizza, scrambled eggs, spaghetti, peanut butter and jelly, and macaroni and cheese…

They’re easy. They’re delicious. But unfortunately, they can also get old real fast. Especially if you’ve been participating in Lent for several years now.

After all, you can only eat so much pan-fried tilapia before you’re like “Oh please. No more.”


Thankfully, while these foods are the most common easy Lent meal ideas, they certainly aren’t the only ones. There are still TONS of food options available for anyone who doesn’t eat meat during Lent who also doesn’t have the time to spend all day cooking.

In fact, in today’s post, I’m sharing 50+ Easy Lent Recipes You’ll Love to Make!

So whether you need lenten meal ideas for breakfast, lunch, dinner or snacking in between — you’ll find them all right here in this post!

    1. Opinions vary but *in my opinion* technically yes (since it isn’t meat), but ideally Lent should involve some type of sacrifice. You could ask your priest and go with whatever your priest says.
