5 Tasty Vegan Recipes for Easter

Easter is just over a week away, and for many of us that means planning supper or brunch for friends and family. Even if you’re not doing Easter lunch this year, these yummy vegan recipes are sure-fire crowd pleasers!

In my family, we head down to my in-laws’ place for Easter, which means the meal is definitely not going to be vegan. I don’t want my veganism to inconvenience my mother-in-law’s cooking plans, so every year I cook up some vegan food for the vegetarian and vegan guests, and even the omnivores serve themselves helpings of these dishes.

I’m a big believer in vegan advocacy, but I also think that vegans get a bad rap for preaching about animal cruelty at inopportune times. When it comes to holidays like Easter, I think the best way to advocate a vegan diet is with delicious food, rather than talking about factory farming. These recipes are sure to satisfy the vegans at the table and give the omnivores some food for thought!

I am not vegan and tire of the lectures from some such as eating animals is not Christian and the like but one can always incorporate vegan recipes into the menu for variety-which is the spice of life. Nothing like tasty recipes that are enjoyable.

It looks delicious, I'm definitely trying this one.

This strawberry spinach salad is linked to an article about vegans and vegetarians adapting the Atkins diet. I would like to see the nutritional breakdown of this recipe. Trying to stay under 50g of carbs a day is difficult. especially with an all plant based diet. Fruit would be almost eliminated from the diet completely, so I would be surprised if this recipe would be doable for anyone following Atkikns. It would probably take up too large a portion of the day's carb allowance.

Good recipes, though I would look for substitutes for items such as soy milk, sugar and bleached white flour to make the recipes healthier.

Thank you, Becky, we'll definitely try those. Love the sound (and the photo) of the spinach and strawberry salad - can't wait to taste it.
