With Lent (Cuaresma) beginning on Wednesday, you may be looking for some seafood recipes and other meat substitutes to have on Fridays during Lent. Even if you don’t practice Lent’s tradition of not eating meat on Fridays, cutting back on animal fat sounds like a healthy idea to me!
Here are some of my favorite recipes from the blog archives that would be great to make during Cuaresma. Are you eating more seafood and meatless dishes during Lent? Share your favorites in the comments below.
