Creating a menu for EVERY DAY of a Lenten Season can be quite a challenge - even for one meal a day. But, there are some days when families like more than one meal a day (Imagine!).
Every family needs a list of meals that are quick and easy to serve with little notice - even families that faithfully menu plan. For omnivores, this list often includes things like burgers, eggs, hot dogs, chicken nuggets, or boxed mac n cheese.
This is the vegan version!
I'm putting in links to specific brands that I find tasty, and I believe are vegan. No affiliate links, just stuff I like using.
Here are those easy menus that I like to prepare when time and energy for cooking are limited. They're easy meals that can be prepared with very little time or effort, and the family likes them!

Lightlife Smart Dogs with Baked Chips & Vegetarian Baked Beans
Ramen Noodles (Soy Sauce Flavor by Maruchan) with Veggies added (we like Broccoli in ours)
BLT made with Lightlife Smart Bacon
|Lazy Day LoMein|
|Black-Eyed Pea Salad|
|White Bean Salad|
|Black Bean & Corn Salad with Tortilla Chips|
Club Sandwich made with Tofurky Deli Slices, Daiya American Cheese, Lightlife Smart Bacon, Lettuce (or cucumber slices), Tomato, and Vegan Mayo on Toast. (to me the trick of enjoying these "fake" foods on a sandwich is to use a small quantity of each - one slice Tofurkey, one slice "cheese" etc - and let the flavors blend)
