What is everyone making for Easter? I am making dinner for about 25. I'd love to hear some of your suggestions/favorite dishes.

I don't think I'm having any special meals for easter, but I'll buy eggs (and hopefully receive eggs) from my boyfriend and parents! I didn't realise most adults don't do this, but my family always make sure everyone gets at least one egg so I'm keeping the tradition up <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
I love easter because there are beautiful things like this <a href="http://www.hotelchocolat.co.uk/src/egg211/Dark-Chocolate-Egg-P300165" target="_blank">http://www.hotelchocolat.co.uk/src/e...te-Egg-P300165</a> produced by hotel chocolat each year! Both my eggs were from hotel chocolat last year, my favourite place to buy chocolate, spoilt or what!? Yum yum yum <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> I am keeping my fingers crossed!<br><br>
I expect I'll also make easter cookies and, not going to lie, I've already had a cheeky hot cross bun <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:"><br><br>
What are you planning to cook for 25!? I get in a flap cooking for four if we have guests I can't imagine cooking for so many! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Yeh, the OP needs a medal for that. Anymore than four guests and I hand the task over to my boyfriend cos he's much better at keeping things under control in the kitchen. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br>
I'm not actually making anything for Easter as I'm going away for the long weekend so someone else will be making it for me this time around, but on the Thursday night before Easter starts I will be having a couple of friends around for tea and I'm planning to make a vegan Moussaka.

I am not sure what we will be doing however, I told my husband I am not doing the dye thing anymore for the traditional eggs. I rather do other things for Easter. I will come back to check and or share recipes.

I'm less worried about the eggs (we haven't used real eggs since I was 5) and more worried about easter dinner. Everything seems to have ham or lamb? I did tofurkey at christmas and thanksgiving but that just doesn't seem easter-y. Suggestions?

Seitan cooked with rosemary and mint jelly. A nice lamb replacement.

My Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter dinners at our house is always the same, with a big turkey roast, so I have tofurky instead while my non-vegan family members eat the bird. Though I think I should try to switch things up for the holidays sometime.<br><br>
I was thinking of making some sort of seitan roast, but that will be for another time when I have actually tried making it before.<br><br>
When I am a bit more prepared I want to make vegan white chocolate easter shaped chocolates. They were always my favourite growing up.<br><br>
I haven't decided if I wanted to make a vegan ambrosia salad yet either.

Being new to veganism I am wondering what I should bring to my grandma's house for my husband and I. I am going to bring a great spring salad and and a carrot cake, but should I bring a ham replacement for ken and I? If so, any recipes? I think that and a nice home-made loaf of bread as well as some fresh fruits would be an awesome addition. I would also like a vegan recipe for green bean casserole. Also, does anyone know what kind of plant milk is best for mash potatoes?

Salad, cake, bread and fruits sound delicious and yummy for everyone! Bring the ham if you and your husband want to eat it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> No one will mind. Maybe bring a little extra if anyone wants to try some out of curiosity. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
I would suggest soya milk for mash, I use rice because it's what I usually drink and I'm allergic to soy, but rice and almond milk are sweet and rice milk is quite watery. I think soya milk is thicker, creamer and more savoury (unless you get sweetened obviously!), or oat milk would also probally work well although I've not tried it. I also put a big dollop of soya margerine in mine <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> and they make soya cream if you wanna go crazy! My mum used to put cream in mash potato sometimes.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> goodluck!

I'm thinking some member of my husband's family will probably do dinner -- they usually do. They're Italian, so there's always pasta, salad, and bread; I'll just have to make sure there's going to be some pasta dish I can eat (i.e. no cheese/meat), either that or I'll just bring a dish to share. I'll bring vegan cupcakes too <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:">

Last year I made all sorts of salads. They were delicious,, but we had too many leftovers. This year, I'm thinking of this:<br><br><a href="http://tofu-n-sproutz.blogspot.com/2007/01/rich-garlicky-scalloped-potatoes.html" target="_blank">http://tofu-n-sproutz.blogspot.com/2...-potatoes.html</a><br><br>
I'm also considering a caribbean salad (spinach, greens,mandarin oranges,dried cranberries,pineapple,green onion,kiwi, cilantro with a lime vinaigrette),some nice bread and pineapple upside down cupcakes.<br><br>
I figure you can't go wrong with potatoes- scalloped, mashed, potato salad goes a long way. Fruit and pasta salads always taste nice with the Easter meal.

Before I gave up dairy, I always used sour cream in my mashed potatoes, they make them richer without a lot of fat. You could try using tofutti sour cream!

I don't do Easter...I do Walpurgis Night.<br><br>
I'll dance madly around a bonfire naked at midnight while fornicating with the long forgotten nymph spirits of mother Gaia into the wee morning hours. And I'll do this completely sober without an ounce of alcohol or drugs.<br><br>
Some people use drugs. I AM drugs.

I know what you mean. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br>
I'll probably do very little. My family never did much, and now that I'm out of the house and don't each chocolate, who knows. I'll probably end up playing video games with friends.

Just don't get carried away and dance too close to the bonfire. That could hurt.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/shocked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:">

My brother's coming to stay for the week. He's fourteen, and lacto-ovo, so food should be easy and there probably won't be any arguments of "but I don't like that..." so that's good.<br><br>
It's finding sdomething to entertain ourselves with for the week that'll be the problem. I think I'll rent a shedload of DVDs.

I'm going to my Mom-Moms. She serves ham, pasta, her homemade meat sauce, salad, and her cold lemon broccoli. I eat the sides and have the pasta with some butter.<br>
If I was on my own or hosting, I'd probally make a big light salad, croissants, fruit, and other light recipes I could find online.
