Holiday food events: the vegan dilemma

family dinner under the lights

Holiday events and special celebrations are meant to be a joyous time spent with family and loved ones. When you are vegan, these special times are sometimes fraught with stress and doubt.

Is there going to be anything I can eat? Or will I be stuck eating salad and crackers? (And are the crackers even vegan?) And worse yet, am I going to get constantly harassed about my choices?

Special events should be about celebrating loved ones and traditions. But food will always be deeply ingrained in traditions. We can’t get away from it.

But it can be challenging when others’ food choices are in conflict with your ethics or health goals. I know that some vegans simply choose not to attend. That is their choice. Personally, I have lost family members over the past couple of years and this is not an option for me. My choice.

My solution to this dilemma is to have an arsenal of vegan holiday recipes I can make and take that everyone can enjoy – vegans and non-vegans alike. In this roundup post of the best vegan Easter meal recipes, you are going to find a plethora of amazing delicious vegan main courses, breakfast casseroles, side dishes, and desserts that will have them asking for more…and for the recipe!

How to serve the best vegan Easter Brunch Ever!

Wouldn’t it be fun to host your own special event? Make your favorite vegan Easter recipes, and invite everyone to enjoy your tasty food! This is a round-up of the best vegan Easter dinner menu ideas to be served at your vegan Easter table.

When I am hosting brunch, whether it is for five people or fifteen, I like to set up a brunch table or serving counter with a variety of foods so that everyone can casually choose what they’d like to eat. Remember, you should be serving a little bit of type of meal, breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Because brunch food is what happens when breakfast and lunch get together and produce delicious offspring!

Have a nice variety on your brunch buffet table.

Depending on the number of people I’m hosting, I try to have on hand:

  1. Two to four main courses including vegan breakfast casseroles, quiche, and vegan “meats”. I also like to serve some deli slices of vegan meat and cheese with an assortment of buns, slices of bread, and condiments.
  2. Include some sweet breads or muffins along with vegan cream cheese, butter, and jam.
  3. And because brunch is part breakfast, we have to have at least one classic breakfast item like pancakes or waffles. These can be tricky because they need to be made right before serving. You could also do a vegan french toast casserole. Make it the night before and just heat it in the oven before serving.
  4. Add to that, a few vegetable side dishes. It helps clear up oven space and save time to cook and serve a few in slow cookers or in the Instant Pot.
  5. I always have at least one savory salad and fruit salad or two.
  6. Don’t forget dessert! Pick a few desserts that can be made ahead of time so that you don’t have to worry about it the day of. I like to serve something they can hold while they walk around and talk, and something they need to sit down and eat on a plate with a fork or spoon. That way everyone has choices!

NOW LET’S GET TO THE RECIPES, SHALL WE?!?

Vegan Breakfast Casserole “Egg” Dishes

Every Easter brunch should have a breakfast casserole or two, depending on the number of people you are expecting. These vegan breakfast casserole “egg” dishes are egg-free and perfect to set on your brunch buffet. Some of the recipes require making the night before. Make sure to read the recipes and plan ahead for your special day.

Vegan “meats” and other main courses for your vegan brunch

Luckily there is a multitude of vegan “meats” we can serve. I know it’s not necessary for your vegan Easter table, but it sometimes brings back familiar flavors for people at special events. If you serve buffet-style, then everyone can pick and choose what they would like to put on their plate.

Vegan meat can mean homemade seitan (vital wheat gluten meat), tempeh, or tofu. You can also buy vegan roasts at the grocery store or online, especially during the holidays. Vegan deli slices served with vegan cheese, rolls, and condiments are another option and easy enough to find at most grocery stores.

Vegan Pancakes, Waffles, French Toast, and Such

Every brunch needs some classic breakfast items like pancakes and waffles! The challenge with pancakes and waffles is that you can’t make them ahead of time like you can with casseroles. I like to choose only one special breakfast food such as these to make as I am serving. You can set up a small table in the corner or spot at the edge of your buffet table. Make sure you have outlets or a power strip. Make to order!

Vegan Easter Side Salads, Both Sweet and Savory

Salad doesn’t just have to be about the lettuce! Though you could certainly do that too. Brunch salads should be special though – not just lettuce and dressing. If you are going to make a salad, then make a beautiful salad!

Salads, both sweet and savory are the perfect addition to add to your brunch buffet. They can usually be made ahead of time and brought out right before serving.
