My Gluten Free Easter

My Gluten Free Easter (GF, DF)

Easter is almost here, and I couldn’t be more excited! My Easter Bunny always surprises me with new allergy-friendly treats. Often times, the Easter Bunny finds new candies before I do! 🙂

But that’s not all, Easter is also a time to gather with our families and enjoy some delicious dishes. So, this week, I wanted to share the dishes that I make for Easter! The blogger in me is slightly proud because this year my Easter post is coming out BEFORE Easter, so you have time to try them out yourself!

Minty Peas and Carrots (GF, V)

My Gluten Free Easter

This is a popular side dish in my house. Not only is it in season, butdespite using light flavors it tastes incredibly rich! To learn more or cook this dish yourself, check out this blog post for the recipe! 

Springtime Cupcakes

This recipe doesn’t call for anything specific beyond jelly beans. I use Jelly Bellies, which are gluten and dairy free. However, if you’re vegan there are plenty of other companies that you can try instead. And, then all that’s left is a bit of imagination!

This treat is great because your kids can decorate as well! While I’ll leave the cupcake recipe up to your own design, I particularly like my gluten and dairy free buttercream frosting recipe. And, don’t forget to read my original blog post on these cupcakes!

Now everyone needs a main dish, and I just recommend this one because I love the marinade and the idea of fresh herbs as we enter the spring season.  And, the flavor combination is simply mouthwatering.  Plus, if you’re traveling (and packing your own meal), you can eat this dish cold and it’s easy to store. Learn to make this dish by reading the recipe in my original blog post! 

Over the past ten years, I’ve spent about half of my Easters at home and the other half away. It’ll be nice to be spending my second Easter in a row at home with my family and friends. What will you be doing this weekend?

Happy Wanderlust Wednesday!

  1. Sounds like a wonderful Easter meal. I’ll be visiting my daughter and her family this weekend for Easter – can’t wait to snuggle with my four-month old grandbaby!

  2. I’ve never thought to pair mint with peas and carrots – that sounds delightful. And the jelly bean cupcake topping is over the top!
