There are so many Easter recipes around that it can be difficult to know which ones are actually vegan. If you’re looking for an easy and delicious vegan Easter dinner idea then these ideas might be able to help you get going. Whether you are of the vegan persuasion or not, there is certainly something special about eating eggs on Easter – it’s one of those great family traditions you should try to capture your family in.
Most Popular Vegan Easter Recipes
One of the most popular vegan Easter recipes around is oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. To make this recipe you only need vegan egg substitutes (the egg you would use in a traditional egg recipe is vegan), some vegan margarine, and chocolate chips. Put all of the ingredients into your food processor and mix until combined. Then roll out the mixture between two pans, slice the cookies and serve.
The first part of any vegan meal on Easter is the egg itself. While you can certainly enjoy eggs in many vegan ways – some are more enjoyable than others. Some people would rather have ham or bacon for breakfast, but if you are really pressed for choice you can always have the classic egg. Ham is a great alternative if you don’t like to eat eggs, but if you do like to eat eggs then you can always have the vegan version.
An alternative to eggs is to have some soy-based egg substitute. These eggs often come flavored with tofu which makes them much more interesting to eat. Tofu has become very popular over the past few years and it really comes as no surprise that it’s a popular choice for vegetarians. Soy beans are also used in soy egg substitutes, which is perfect if you are trying to avoid animal products in your diet. Soy-based meals often taste better than eggs and you can also enjoy a wide variety of textures with them.
Frosted Soy Cakes
Other great vegan egg desserts are frosted soy cakes. The frosting doesn’t have any dairy products in it and the cake can be enjoyed alone as a healthy snack or with another food for an added creaminess to it. Another fun thing about vegan egg desserts is that they can actually be served at mealtime. If you don’t want to make a full blown meal, you can always turn it into a delicious dessert by serving it chilled. If you enjoy fruit desserts you can also serve fruit cakes or fruit parfaits as an egg alternative.
Some people might think that making a chocolate-flavored dessert sounds unusual. However, baking chocolate eclairs is a fairly common practice and it can be done with vegan ingredients. The key to success is in the chocolate powder that you use. You’ll need it to create a smooth chocolate coating that will hold the chocolate well. You can also add other flavors to the chocolate if you’d like to create something different. For instance, vanilla, nutmeg or cinnamon will all work very well together.
Of course, there’s also the traditional Easter egg. This can be prepared in many different ways but one that’s easy and doesn’t take long is to cook your own raw eggs and then scramble them until they are just the right consistency. You could also choose to just bake the egg which is even easier. As you can see, there are many vegan Easter dessert options so if you thought vegan was out there, think again.
