Friends, Easter is just a few short weeks away! How did that happen??
With the spring equinox behind us (yay, spring!!!) and Easter right on its tail, I figured it was time, once again, to round up some of my favorite vegan Easter recipes from the blog. I’ve gathered recipes for Easter brunch, dinner, and, dessert. Think all things spring: berries, asparagus, peas, and more!
Vegan Easter Recipes
What better way to celebrate the season of life than with some of nature’s best foods? So let’s focus on compassion this Easter, and take a look at these 31 plant-based recipes that are PERFECT for spring.
Let’s start off this day of springtime celebration with a hearty vegan brunch. When I think about Easter brunch, I think about the decadence of sweet morning breakfasts like French toast and cinnamon rolls as well as eggy casseroles like quiches and frittatas. Here are a few of my favorite foods to share at Easter Brunch:
- Classic Vegan French Toast
- Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins
- Vegan Banana Pancakes
- Easy Cinnamon Rolls
- Vegan Quiche with Caramelized Onions and Shiitake
- Perfect Vegan Pancakes
- Vegan Bagel and “Lox”

There are so many options for vegan Easter dinner.

No Easter meal is complete without a delicious vegan dessert. My favorite desserts for springtime are ones that are light and filled with fresh fruits and berries. Olive oil cakes, berry cobblers, and shortcakes are always a hit this time of year. And I highly recommend my 5-ingredient coconut ice cream to accompany any vegan dessert. It’s a fan favorite!
