Five Simple Recipes to Change the World this Lent

BALTIMORE, MD--(Marketwired - February 21, 2017) - When Lent begins on March 1st many Catholics will make dietary sacrifices -- no candy, no ice cream, and certainly no meat on Fridays.

But what does it mean to give up meat? For some families, the answer is found in a collection of meatless recipes that make Lent's five meatless Fridays more than a sacrifice. These recipes provide a way for us to express solidarity with our neighbors around the world who struggle to keep healthy food on their tables every day.

The recipe collection is part of CRS Rice Bowl, a popular Lenten resource produced by one of the largest humanitarian aid agencies in the world, Catholic Relief Services which for 73 years has brought meaningful and measurable change to vulnerable communities in 100 countries around the world.

Five of those countries have provided a collection of simple, easy-to-follow meatless recipes that appeal to cooks of all abilities. And each comes with a video story about a person who benefits from CRS programming. These illustrate the great strides being made to improve health, education and nutrition in poor, mostly rural communities -- so cooks of all ages will get to know the special ingredients that go into making the world a better place.

This year's weekly Lenten features are:

Week 1: Story from the Singh Family from East India
Serve this simple meal from India: Dalma with spinach/Vegetable stew.

Week 2: Story from Evelina from Zambia
Serve this simple meal from Zambia: Ifisashi/Peanut stew over polenta.

Week 3: Story from Fernando from El Salvador

Week 4: Story from Maria from Mexico

Week 5: Story from Dita from Ethiopia

The CRS Rice Bowl recipes give you a way to look beyond macaroni and cheese and fried fish this Lent and turn meatless Fridays into a delicious and unique experience of solidarity with your global neighbors.
