Recipes for an ecofriendly Lent

EarthBeat is cooking up "Recipes for an eco-friendly Lent." Elizabeth Varga of the blog "At Elizabeth's Table" shares plant-based recipes that are perfect for Catholics abstaining from meat on Fridays ... or any day of the year.

Dietary dependence on animal agriculture is one of the leading contributors of climate change and environmental degradation. By abstaining from animal products like meat and dairy in our meals, we not only participate in the obligatory Lenten Friday fast, but also care for communities most affected by ecological harm and help to heal the earth that we all call home.
