The following pages capture many popular Lenten recipes prepared by members of our parish. We have also included a small section for festal (non-lenten) recipes that parishioners would like to share.
The Liturgical Recipes section is for foods prepared for memorials and other liturgical uses (e.g., artoklasia, kollyva, prosfora).
To learn more about the fasting guidelines and calendar for the Orthodox Church, you can visit the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese's church calendar.
We have used abbreviations to indicate recipes that do not use oil, are gluten-free, or are especially popular with children. They are as follows:
O- = No Oil
GF = Gluten Free
K+ = Kid Favorite
