LENT FRIENDLY RECIPES!


Lent season is here and for some, this means exploring new, meatless recipes and getting creative in the kitchen!

For others, meatless recipes are the norm and you are already pro’s! Either way, this week’s edition of Forking Made Easy gives you not one but two protein packed recipes both meatless and delicious!
