Shopping for Easter can be a long affair, requiring you to set aside a wide range of other chores and make time in your schedule. Fortunately is one of my favorite things to do. The challenge is while you are Vegan or Vegetarian. What a Vegan – Vegetarian can eat during Easter? Traditionally in Greece, we eat lamb and one way of cooking it, is on the spit on the Easter Sunday.
This Easter is my first celebration as a Vegetarian, which means no meat of any kind. I am sure my family and the people around me will face me as an alien but to be honest I do not mind at all, in contrast, I will be amused by their reactions. 🙂 Since they do not have any knowledge about the certain diet, I am not expecting them, to favorite and understand my actions.
I’ve had done a lot of research and this Easter Menu tastes every bit as good, with a lot of less mess. I’ve adapted techniques from the Traditional Greek cuisine, my Gastronomy studies and from cuisines around the world. It is separated in 1. Salads, 2. Sides, 3. Main course and 4. Desserts. Click in each photo to view the recipe. In some recipes, you can find variations for Vegans / Vegetarians and alternative ways that you can use each recipe. Hope you enjoy them.
