Because it is time with important people to me, I love holidays. It’s hard to find time to spend with loved ones and family when we live hectic lives. Quality time is my number one favorite part of holidays. If you are a true foodie, you will agree! Easter can often be filled with sweets and large meals. There aren’t many options for vegans if they follow a plant-based diet.
Simple Zucchini Roll-Ups
Easter marks the transition from winter to spring. It’s wonderful to swap hearty comfort foods for light, airy dishes.
These simple zucchini rolls are light, delicious, and perfect for Easter. A ribboned zucchini is topped in cashew cream cheese and then rolled up with fresh dill and asparagus. Before the big meal, share a platter! These easy zucchini roll-ups can be made in a few minutes.
Vegan Deviled Potatoes
Deviled eggs can be used for any occasion or holiday meal. Deviled eggs are a crowd favorite, but they are not vegan-friendly. This vegan version uses potatoes which you will love.
Mini potatoes in egg size are a great substitute. The creamy filling is made with mashed potato and the familiar flavors of mustard and paprika.

Vegan Bunny Soft Pretzels

Instant Pot Butternut Squash
A variety of side dishes can make any meal a feast. Butternut squash is a crowd-favorite this Easter!
The oven is often the most used space during major holidays such as Easter. Instead, use our Instant Pot Hack to cook your squash. The Instant Pot cooks your squash quickly and produces amazing results. It peels off the skin, which means that there is no leftover squash!

American favorites include green bean casserole! Although it is traditionally served on Thanksgiving, it’s delicious and extremely savory so that you can serve it at Easter!
This recipe gives a vegan twist to a classic recipe. This casserole is vegan-friendly and dairy-free, so even non-vegan family members won’t notice. This recipe is easy to prepare and takes only 35 minutes.
Vegan Scalloped Potatoes
Another traditional Easter side dish is scalloped potatoes! This traditional side dish is loaded with cheese and dairy ingredients, not allowed on a plant-based diet.
With a few modifications, you can easily recreate your childhood favorite recipes. These potatoes have a creamy texture thanks to homemade cashew cream sauce. You’ll also enjoy the savory flavors and aromas of garlic and onion, along with the creamy sauce.
Vegan Cashew Cheese, Asparagus Tart
Asparagus is always in season during spring, so it is obvious why you should have them on your Easter dinner menu! This vegan version of the asparagus and cheese tart is a traditional Easter dish.
Flaky pastry is then topped with vibrant lemon cashew and finished with asparagus and garlic. Bake the tart in the oven for about 20 minutes or until it turns a beautiful golden color.
Whole Roasted Carrots With Maple Tahini
Roasted carrots are a great side dish to any holiday meal. If you want to leave a lasting impression, serve these whole roasted carrots with maple honey tahini.
These colorful carrots are far more interesting than simple orange carrots. These carrots are also extra special because of the maple tahini drizzles, which are sweet and delicious!

If you want to make it special, you should prepare a delicious Easter meal! This vegan mushroom wellington looks amazing and tastes incredible!
A portabello and savory onion filling surround the flaky golden pastry. The entire entree is ready in just one hour, but the cooking takes 50 minutes.
