Easter Celebration With Vegetarian Meals

Farmers markets are brimming, and Easter celebrations are just around the corner, with all the glories of egg hunts, and a delicious brunch as one of the vegetarian meals will make Easter celebration memorable. For inspiration on that score, some experts in the culinary genre, Easter cooking is a celebration of the planet’s rebirth.

Some may have come through this long winter, and all of a sudden, the first strawberries are popping out of the earth. It’s this celebration of new life. For others it may be changing of season for the opposite.

Whatever the season and whether the gathering is after church or after the egg hunt, brunch is a perfect way to do it. Vegetarian meals that showcase fresh, healthful foods with a hint of luxury are the best way to celebrate Easter.

Hot cross buns and baked goods are always a part of Easter. Beautiful berries on our French toast or wholemeal pancakes drizzled with real maple syrup…bring back memories of holidays.

The egg symbolizes rebirth and rejuvenation – the changing of the season, the changing of the soil and air, and the beautiful produce. This asparagus and cheese tart is one the easiest and greatest Easter vegetarian meals especially as a brunch.
