lean recipes: lean pizza
Such a pizza is prepared without sausage, mayonnaise and cheese, but it still turns out to be very tasty and satisfying.

500 g wheat flour;
300 g fresh champignons;
300 ml of warm water;
1 onion;
7 g dry yeast;
3 tablespoons of olive oil;
1 teaspoon of salt;
½ teaspoon of sugar;
a bunch of dill;
paprika, oregano, basil and hot red pepper – to taste.
In warm water, mix yeast, sugar and two tablespoons of olive oil. Let stand 10-15 minutes. Mix the salt with the flour and carefully pour the yeast mixture into it. Knead the dough. When it becomes elastic and stops sticking to your hands, let it stand for an hour. It should double in size.

During this time, prepare the filling.

Fry the washed and chopped mushrooms and onions in olive oil. Vegetables can be left slightly raw.

Roll out the finished dough into layers or circles of the diameter you need. Put the filling on them, stepping back from the edges by 1.5 centimeters. Make the sides of the dough. Sprinkle chopped herbs and spices on top. Bake in an oven preheated to 200 degrees for 15-20 minutes until the dough is browned and the vegetables reach the desired consistency.

There are many other options for lean pizza toppings. For example, with fried eggplants, tomatoes and basil, olives and black olives, various types of onions, and so on.

Heather Joan/
If you get out into nature, where everyone eats hamburgers with juicy meat patties, and for some reason you do not eat meat, then there is a way out. Make yourself a veggie patty hamburger.

2-3 slices of rye bread;
2-3 rye hamburger buns;
1 glass of walnuts;
3 onions;
2 small tubers of potatoes;
2 small tomatoes;
1 carrot;
1 clove of garlic;
2 tablespoons of tomato sauce;
1 tablespoon of olive oil;
lettuce leaves;
salt and pepper – to taste;
vegetable oil for frying.
Peel and cut potatoes into large pieces. Do the same with onions and carrots. Pass all this together with walnuts through a meat grinder. Soak the bread in water, pass the garlic through a press.

Combine all ingredients, salt, pepper and add olive oil. Form cutlets and fry them on a hot pan or grill.

Then collect the hamburgers. On a bun smeared with tomato sauce, put a lettuce leaf, then a cutlet, a slice of tomato and cover with the second half of the bun.

Lenten recipes: donuts in honey syrup
Another dish for the delight of the sweet tooth is simple products and a minimum of hassle.

3 cups flour;
2 glasses of water;
1 cup of sugar;
300 g of honey;
7 g dry yeast;
1 teaspoon of salt;
1 teaspoon cinnamon;
frying oil.
Dissolve yeast in a little warm water. Sift the flour, make a depression in it, pour the diluted yeast into the center and knead the dough, gradually adding warm water (a glass). Let the dough stand for 60-90 minutes.

Heat vegetable oil in a deep saucepan.

Shape the dough into donuts (so that it does not stick to your hands, moisten your fingers with vegetable oil) and deep-fry.

Dry the finished donuts with paper towels and pour over the honey syrup. To prepare it, combine a glass of water, honey and sugar in one saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook for another 2-3 minutes.

When the donuts are soaked, sprinkle them with cinnamon and have a tea party.
