Anyone Can Cook Vegetarian Food: Easter Egg Inspirations

Hooray!  It’s March, which means it’s time for a new Vegetarian Food Challenge! And with Easter fast approaching, where better to look for a theme?

The March 2013 theme is Easter Egg Inspirations

(because feeding people gorgeous food is the true meaning of Easter.  Um.  OK, maybe not.  Unless you’re me, in which case feeding people gorgeous is the true meaning of life in general, no matter what time of year it is…)



This challenge is a very broad – not to say silly – challenge.  What with Easter approaching, I initially thought about an egg-based challenge… but this seemed a little unfair on the vegans among you.  On the other hand, chocolate is probably a little bit too easy, especially if dairy and eggs are allowed.

So here’s the deal.  You can include any dish that…

  • Features eggs, or is egg-based (bonus points for anything that looks at all Easter Egg like by the time you are done with it)
  • Features eggplant.  Because that totally counts as eggs for vegans.  Bonus points if you stuff the eggplant, thus preserving the egg shape.
  • Is chocolatey and vegan (bonus points for vegan Easter Eggs – I really must get my vegan chocolate truffle recipe out for this one)
  • Anything else that you can convince me looks like an egg.  I’m sort of hoping a few of you will pick this one, because I have no idea what looks like an egg, but would love to find out.

Challenge rules can be found at the main challenge page!  Don’t forget to add your post to the linky below once you’ve done all the lovely adding of icons and linking back to this page, so that you can get the code for your own blog hop.

I can’t wait to see what egg-cellent recipes you come up with.  And I’m going to stop right now before the urge to make bad egg puns overwhelms me…

    I love how you thought about the vegans! 🙂 Can’t wait to link something up… although I can’t see the linky right now.

      Oh, drat. Pre-setting the linky jut doesnt work, i think. Can’t do much about that now, I’m afraid – in Brisbane and on my phone, which is not conducive to sorting out blog issues… Check back on Tuesday.

    I just linked in some vegan tahini-filled chocolate eggs – or at least, they’re eggs if you squint and consider roughly rolled balls to be egg-shaped 😉
