Vegetarian Mardi Gras Recipes

Mardi Gras means fat Tuesday, the culmination of the season between Christmas and Lent. Fat Tuesday falls on the day before Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. During the 46-day Lent period, many Christians forego the eating of meat, either completely or on Fridays. They also traditionally give up a favored food, drink, or habit. Fat Tuesday is a last chance party excuse before a six-week period of abstinence, and residents of New Orleans, Louisiana, are famous for their Mardi Gras celebrations and parades as well as Cajun and Creole foods, so it’s no wonder that those who celebrate Mardi Gras concentrate on these foods for their Fat Tuesday parties.

As they say in New Orleans, Laissez les bon temps rouler, or Let the good times roll!
