Frequently Asked Questions
What types of vegan Easter recipes will I find here?
- main dishes
- and even bread options
What do vegans eat on Easter?
For starters, vegans each the same things that everyone else eats. Only, there are no animal products involved in their meals.
A traditional Easter meal has ham, mashed potato, asparagus, mac and cheese, deviled eggs, mashed potatoes and gravy, cake, and usually a lot more! Depending on where you live your menu may vary.
A vegan Easter menu has all of these things or some variation of them, just made in a way that doesn’t contain animal products, including eggs and dairy.
Can I make these recipes Top 8 Allergen Free?
We answer this is almost every single post we have, but since there are so many here, it’s hard to give one definitive answer.
Most of these recipes can be Top 8 Allergen Free if you follow our steps in each post.
All of the recipes below are vegan, which means they are naturally dairy and egg free if you have those allergies.

How do you make a vegan ham?
With our brown sugar glazed tofu, it is the perfect glazed vegan ham recipe. We use the same techniques that we used to make ham with to give that delicious sweet and savory recipe that you will love! If you don’t do tofu, there are other recommendations for making the sauce over other ingredients.
There is a store bought vegan option from Tofurky and The Herbivorous Butcher was one as well. You can view our taste test on both of them here. These typically are made out of wheat gluten, soy, or a combination of both.
What should I do if I’m hosting a vegan over?
The best that you can do is be as accommodating as possible. Vegans have come to expect that not everything or even most of what is at a holiday meal is going to be suitable to them; however, that doesn’t mean that you can’t surprise them.
Make simple swaps like using oil or vegan butter in recipes, especially side dishes where butter is the only non-vegan ingredient.

Is it wrong to take a meal to someone’s house if I’m the only vegan?
If you don’t host Easter and you celebrate, then likely you are going somewhere else.
It’s not rude to take over a plate of things you have made ahead of time. For meals we don’t host, we put it in reusable containers and warm it up at the hosts house.
Now, if you do this, be prepared people will ask questions, but it’s a great time to expose others to veganism.
We did bring a vegan dessert to share and guess what, no one knew they were vegan. But it surely brought joy to the guest with a dairy allergy that was happy to learn there was something they could have. Everyone wins!
