Healthy Vegetarian Easter Recipes

I have been anticipating this weekend for months now.  Just counting down the months, days, and hours until I am able to spend Easter weekend in Napa with my family and best friends. This girls’ trip has been a long time coming, and I am craving some emotional and physical R&R.

So while I will not be preparing an Easter feast, I know that many of you will. Whether you are planning a brunch, lunch, or dinner in the upcoming months, here are 15 favorite seasonal vegetarian recipes.

2. Roasted Asparagus with Pistachio Mint Pesto by Floating Kitchen

Easter just screams asparagus, and I love this healthy roasted version topped with pistachio mint pesto. For a main dish, add some pasta, chop the asparagus into 1″ pieces, and double the pesto.

3. Banana Chia Pancakes

These pancakes are my favorite thing to make when entertaining for brunch. The chia seeds provide the perfect texture, especially paired with this peanut butter-maple syrup.

5. Asparagus and Mushroom Frittata by Cooking and Beer

While I’m not a huge egg person, I do love a good frittata. Since it tastes great at room temperature, it’s perfect for serving a large group of people. I’m drawn to this one which features asparagus, parsley and thyme.

6. Vegan Lemon Loaf Cake by Vegan Family Recipes

It’s hard to look at this photo and not want to run to the kitchen to make it again. If there’s one thing I love more than asparagus, it’s lemon. Put it in a cake and I’m in lemon heaven.

13. Spring Bruschetta

Four recipes that elevate basic crostini. Bruschetta is one of my favorite appetizers to make, simple to assemble and always a crowd pleaser. Pairings include herbed cashew cheese and radish, spring pea and mint, butternut squash and tahini, and avocado tomato.

14. Spring Salad with New Potatoes by Smitten Kitchen

Ready for your new favorite side dish? I always associate Easter with potato salad, but instead of traditional mayo-based salad, this salad calls for potatoes, pickled spring onions and sharp mustard vinaigrette.

15. Shaved Fennel, Radish and Apple Salad from Williams Sonoma Blog

Refreshing and crisp, this citrusy salad tossed in a tangy grapefruit vinaigrette is perfect for bringing to a potluck. The acid in the grapefruit and lemon will keep the apple from turning brown so the salad can sit at room temperature for a few hours. You can use any citrus in the dressing; try blood oranges or Meyer lemons if they are available.
