Meatless Recipe Round Up for Easter Dinner

by - Thursday, March 29, 2018

Every week we are exploring vegetarian meals for meat eaters. Cooking with seasonal vegetables can seem really limiting at first, but the possibilities are endless. And it is worth it. Just cutting one day of meat eating out of our diet can keep thousands of pounds of CO2 out of the atmosphere a year. No seriously, it's that big a deal. Plus, it's a great opportunity to have some new adventures and try new things. Just another way to take care of the planet AND make life a little bit better!

When I think Easter, I think ham and scalloped potatoes. And at my most flexitarian, I can never quite give up ham. Still on this day, I think it matters more than ever to question how we are doing as stewards of the Earth and maybe take it easier on meat.

So... these are my best ideas for Easter feasts. Even if you can't skip the ham, do half of one and serve some of these amazing dishes with it.

from Delish Knowledge
Ok, this is genius, just hear me out. Make Gnocchi. They are a fun family activity. Impressive but actually pretty easy. And best of all, they look like little Easter eggs. Find one that works for you, but this awesome recipe from Delish Knowledge uses veggies that are in season like asparagus. But seriously, friend, I think I discovered an epic secret. Gnocchi is Easter food.
