29 Mar Plant-Strong Easter!
How do you have a plant-strong Easter?
Let’s start with Easter baskets! Skip the junk food and sugar this year and fill baskets with fun little toys, crayons, playing cards, coloring books. They even make BPA free plastic Easter eggs that you could fill with dried fruits and nuts. You can pick up “That’s It” bars or natural fruit leathers. If you want to skip the plastic eggs all together, you can hide things like clues to finding a fun prize at the end. And what about an alternative to coloring eggs? How about making fun fabric eggs like these.
What about Easter brunch? We’ve rounded up some of our favorite, special occasion recipes for a great plant-strong Easter brunch!
Deviled Eggs: A recipe by Ann Esselstyn, adapted by our friend, Lindsay Nixon.
Mini Crustless Quiches by Susan at Fat Free Vegan (we skipped the spray oil in this recipe and used silicone muffin pans)
Might Muffins: An old standby here at Engine 2.
Breakfast Burrito Bake by Cathy Fisher at Straight Up Food
Creamy Breakfast Rice Pudding by Dreena Burton at Plant-Powered Kitchen
Of course you can’t go wrong with tulips! We really loved the added idea with the sliced citrus.
This has a nice farms 2 forks feel:
