Vegan Easter Dinner Recipes
This spring vegetable tart looks like a work of art, but it’s so easy to accomplish. Puff pastry isn’t the healthiest item in the world, but for special occasions, it transforms simple ingredients into something fun and festive. Use a name brand (these are most often vegan, though it doesn’t hurt to check the ingredients), and make sure to give it a good 45 minutes to an hour to thaw out—not less, and ideally, not much more. This makes two rectangular tarts that are easy on the cook and gorgeous to behold. Recipe adapted from Vegan Holiday Kitchen. Photos by Susan Voisin.
This hearty combination of seitan, bell peppers, and portabella mushrooms is so easy to throw together, yet makes a festive main dish for special occasions. It’s a great centerpiece for a vegan Easter dinner, for example, and would be just as good for a Christmas menu. When you’re preparing a multi-course meal, it’s so nice when the entree can be made at the last minute with little hands-on time. If any of your family or guests eat gluten-free, this is obviously not the choice for them. Recipe adapted from Vegan Holiday Kitchen. Photos by Susan Voisin.
