Need Recipes!!!

Help! I am certifiably a terrible cook, so the following email request has me scrambling. Can we come up with a few recipe suggestions prior to Holy Week for Juliette? If you have a suggestion, post it in the comments or email with your favorite.

Dear Catholic Mom,

I've came across your website looking for recipes to cook for lent. I live in Jordan (in the Middle East), and there's a community of 3% of christians who like to fast during lent.

I would appreciate it if you could include recipes that have to meat or dairy and animal products as we abstain from eating cheeses and other animal products.

One of our favorites is rice and bean tostados or tacos.
It's instant brown rice, chopped onion, and once that is simmering, you add a can red beans in chili sauce. Stir that, then add a can of corn (drained). Mix it together and heat.

Then serve it as tacos or over heated flat tortillas w/ lettuce. We use cheese, but it's flavored enough to omit the cheese.

There's one suggestion!
