Roast lamb, ham, beef or even duck in some cases, have become popular meats to accompany an Easter dinner. Of course, if you’re looking for a vegan Easter dinner alternative, our THIS® Isn’t Roast Chicken Dinner is a wonderful meat-free option.
If you’re wondering what to serve with your Easter meal to make sure to ‘wow’ your family and friends, take a look at some Easter meal accompaniment ideas here:
- Chantenay carrots - not as common as leaving them out for reindeer at Christmas, but in days gone by, children would leave small carrots out for the Easter Bunny. Green Chef's Senior Recipe Development Manager, Head Chef and registered nutritionist, Anna Tebbs, explains how these dainty and sweet carrots add a pop of colour to your Easter dinner, while the flavours perfectly balance out the robust flavour of the meat.
- Garlic broccoli and kale
- Cauliflower mash and pea shoots
- Crispy roasted asparagus
- Red wine braised cabbage and mushroom gravy
- Dauphinoise potatoes - which GreenChef Senior Recipe Development Manager, Anna Tebbs, tells us work particularly well with the earthy flavour of lamb.
- Sweet potato wedges
- Roasted vegetables
Don’t forget the Easter desserts to follow your main meal! With the likes of Simnel Easter cake or Easter biscuits on offer, your traditional Easter meal is certain to leave guests truly satisfied. If you’ve got little ones over for the Easter holiday, you might like to get them involved in making some Easter desserts themselves; Easter biscuits and Easter nests are perfect child-friendly recipes.
