From tarts and quiches, to colourful salads and comfort food classics, check out our favourite vegetarian Easter recipe ideas to make the whole family crave a piece of the veggie action...

Sensational starters

Tear and share doughball bread with baked camembert

Who doesn't love a cheesy starter? And this recipe is veggie-friendly! Made with ready rolled pizza dough, this easy starter will add a bit of luxury to your Easter table with little extra effort.

Asparagus and Watercress Tart

Asparagus is at its peak this time of year, so why not throw together this tasty and simple tart as a starter? Blitz together peppery watercress, crème fraîche, lemon zest and egg yolks before spreading on puff pastry and topping with charred asparagus spears. So easy, and so delicious.

Creamy mushroom flatbreads

Tired of garlic bread and tomato bruschetta? These creamy flatbreads offer a delicious bread-based alternative to those classic starters. Top delicious Cheddar cheese and roasted flatbreads with three types of mushroom to mix rich and earthy flavours. 

Kale Pesto Dip with Crumbled Feta

Tuck into this creamy kale dip before your main meal – it's delicious served with toasted pitta and a refreshing drink (did someone say cocktail?).

Amazing mains

Vegetarian Toad-In-The-Hole

It's hard to find anyone who doesn't like toad-in-the-hole, so you can't really go wrong with this veggie version. Crispy batter, flavoursome (veggie) sausages and – of course – creamy mash, make for a spot-on spring supper or lunch.

Bhaji-topped lentil filo pie with a mint and red onion salad

Indian pie for Easter? Why not! This vegan pleaser has had a spiced makeover – using store cupboard saviour lentil ragu and freezer favourites, this Indian inspired pie makes for a truly mouthwatering vegan main meal.

If you fancy a nut roast on your Easter dinner table this year, why not try this delicate carrot and pistachio recipe instead, which is flavoured with paprika, creamy tahini and chickpeas for a warming depth of flavour. Serve with all of your classic roast dinner sides - and don't forget the gravy! Did you know Bisto's Onion Gravy Granules are vegan? Yum!

Sweet Potato, Spinach and Feta Quiche

This colourful quiche is bursting with flavour. The tangy feta complements the sweet veg in this savoury tart. Serve up with new potatoes, spring greens and a lively dressing for the ultimate celebratory meal to welcome spring from the comfort of your own home.

Spectacular sides
