For Catholics around the world, Ash Wednesday through Easter Sunday – Lent, is a special time to reflect, give thanks and spread kindness. It’s also a time for repentance where people will give up an indulgence and refocus their lives. Most Catholics will give up things they love for the 40 days leading up to Easter like candy or fast food. A lot of people choose to give up meat or go vegetarian during this time, so I’m sharing two of my favorite meat-less/vegetarian dishes. It’s easy to keep repeating the same meals over and over, but I encourage you guys to take this time to mix it up and try cooking some of these easy and delicious recipes at home!

Patacón Pisado – crispy slices of green plantains with a red bean spread and topped with salty cotija cheese, yum!

Panela Sticks – these are a must-try for parents with kids. They’re quick and easy to make, perfect as a snack before a big game! See the complete recipe here:
