Enjoy a Homecooked Dinner With Fresh Spring Veggies
Fresh spring veggies add colour and flavour to your Easter meal, including the classic spring veggie, asparagus. These bright green spears can be used as a side dish, tossed in salads, wrapped in crepes or added to omelettes and quiches for Easter brunch. Lovely and sweet, snap peas are excellent with fresh mint and also brighten up soups and salads. Radishes and radish greens as well as fresh baby spinach add a lovely burst of colour to salads, while spinach is also excellent in your brunch quiches. Fresh artichokes might seem intimidating, but can be easily mastered with the right recipe. They are best steamed or blanched and can be dipped in sauces like Hollandaise to bring out the flavour of their tender leaves. Let’s not forget everyone’s favourite appetizers such as warm artichoke and spinach dip. Last – but never least! – the tartness of lovely rhubarb, a veggie that has found its way into our favourite spring desserts, is also making a comeback as an excellent side dish when roasted.

Easter Bunny and Easter Chocolate - Your Kid’s Best Friends
Kids can’t wait to find the chocolate the Easter Bunny has left behind. However, the Easter Bunny isn’t the only one sending out chocolate love at this time of year! Our HelloFresh chefs are cooking up some sweet treats of their own. Since you’ll be busy in the kitchen preparing the Easter meals, why not let our chefs take on some of the workload? Keep the kids happy with our popular Chocolatey Chunk or Full-of-Fudge Brownie Cookie Dough. The kids can help, as the dough is ready to bake. Have them scoop the dough onto cookie trays and you can pop them in the oven for the perfect Easter treat ready in 10 minutes. You can also add a little sweet chocolate to the brunch table with our almost guilt-free sweet and savoury zucchini bread. This recipe is sure to get the kids eating their veggies with the main ingredient zucchini keeping this cake moist. Cocoa powder and bittersweet chocolate provide a double dose of chocolatey goodness so the kids will never know this treat is actually packed with healthy veggies.
Nothing Says ‘Spring’ Better Than Easter Colours
Easter colours are soft and pretty allowing pastels to get their day in the sun. Lovely greens, yellows, purples and pinks in muted tones can be added to your Easter table with hand-dyed Easter eggs. A lovely vase of fresh-cut spring flowers like hyacinths and daffodils is the ultimate Easter combination of purple and yellow. Of course, lilies are a big hit during the Easter season which can be made more vibrant with a twist of rich purple or yellow satin bows. Whimsical décor perfect for kids such as bright yellow baby chicks, or pretty white lambs with little pastel coloured bows also add splashes of colour to your Easter decorations.
