Vegan & Cheesefare Menu

This week is "Cheesefare" for Orthodox Christians. It is a week before Lent when we plan to "use up" all the remaining eggs and cheese in the house in preparation for Great Lent. (for us Greek Orthodox Christians, Lent starts quite late this year)

Here is a menu (more than enough choices for a week!) which can accommodate a family with some  Vegans and some Cheesefarers!

Need even more wonderful ideas for Cheesefare week?
Check out this blog post I admire, that is all SUPER EASY, FREEZER FRIENDLY, & CHEESY!:
Mom on a Mission has this great, Cheesy post for Cheese Fans (all but the last is Vegetarian)

Just Click on Photo Caption to find recipe! : )

Pizza (add cheese to the Cheesefarer's portion)

Stuffed Manicotti (use the cheesy link at the bottom of the post for the Cheesefarer!)

Mexican Haystacks (put out optional Shredded Cheddar and Sour Cream for the Cheesefarers)

Skyline Black Beans and Rice over Spaghetti, Copycat (add Shredded Cheddar to the Cheesefarer's portion)

Pasta & Sauce  (Top cheesefarer's portion in a casserole dish with Shredded Mozzarella & Parmesan, and broil in the oven till cheese is melted & golden brown)

Fill Your Own Tortilla Night (put out Shredded Cheddar & Sour Cream for Cheesefarers)

Spinach & Mushroom Calzones (put a blend of Ricotta, Mozzarella & Parmesan in place of Tofu Mixture in  Cheesefarer's Calzone)

Breakfast Burritos (make Scrambled Egg & Cheese with Salsa filling for Cheesefarers)

Vegan French Toast  (make regular French Toast for Cheesefarers)

Serve Chili Over Rice, with Baked Tortilla Chips (such as Tostitos) for scooping, and Shredded Cheddar over top for Cheesefarers

  1. All the pictures of your food look very yummy! I've never heard of serving chili over rice but perhaps we'll give it a try.

    1. I hope you enjoy it! I had also never heard of Chili over Rice, but we had some Gluten Free Guests on short notice one day, and it was a recipe born of necessity which happily turned out to be delicious! : )

      Thanks so much for visiting again : )

  2. Some great ideas here, for regular meals too :-)

  3. I did not know that this week is "Cheesefare" for Orthodox Christians--the week before Lent when you "use up" all the remaining eggs and cheese in the house in preparation for Great Lent. I like that concept! I would love to make some of these for my next book club meeting.The ladies would love them! I am so delighted that you shared your healthy and delicious Vegan & Cheesefare Menu at the Healthy Happy Green Natural Party! I'm Pinning and sharing this!

  4. These mouthwatering photos of your Vegan & Cheesefare Menu look good enough to eat so I was immediately attracted to your delectable dishes. Thank you for sharing them with us at the Plant-based Potluck Party. I'm pinning and sharing.
