14 Day Lenten Menu (Vegan)

For Orthodox Christians, the 6 weeks before Christmas are are Lenten Season. This time can be called the Christmas Fast, or Advent. For the first four weeks, Fish is permitted most days. Then, during the last two weeks before Christmas, the fast becomes a little more rigorous.

Here is a two week menu for Lent. For Orthodox Christians (Greek Orthodox, Russian Orthodox, Antiochian Orthodox, etc), Lent generally means abstaining from Meat, Poultry, Fish, Dairy & Eggs.
