Traditions are important, and we can continue to enjoy them while making choices that are better for animals. This includes making all our favorite Easter dishes the vegan way—without animal flesh, eggs, dairy, honey, or anything else that was stolen from animals. Easter is a time to celebrate the renewal of life, so it makes perfect sense to choose animal-friendly foods.

Here are a few stunning vegan recipes to make this Easter.

Cafe Indigo’s Famous Vegan Carrot Cake

Carrot cake is a sweet, spiced dessert that just screams springtime, so it’s a great choice for your Easter spread. This version features a decadent dairy-free buttercream frosting made with cow-friendly cream cheese and vegan butter.

Cows are loving, devoted mothers. But in the dairy industry, they’re separated from their babies so that their milk can be stolen from them. That’s why choosing vegan options is so important.

Potato Leek Vegan Quiche

Tofu is a great base for this hen-friendly quiche, which can be made with vegan pie crust that’s homemade or store-bought. Feel free to make this recipe your own by adding your favorite veggies or even some pig-friendly vegan bacon.

Vegan Chocolate Crème Eggs

Cadbury Creme Eggs may have been a staple of your childhood Easter celebrations—before you learned how painful and deadly the dairy industry is for cows who are used for milk chocolate. But luckily, these vegan crème eggs are a creamier, richer, and more delicious version.

Vegan Deviled Potatoes

Instead of making deviled eggs this Easter and harming chickens, try these deviled potatoes. They’re made with egg-free vegan mayo, Dijon mustard, and black salt (aka “kala namak”) for some added “egginess.”

Hens are loving mothers who cluck to their chicks while sitting on the eggs, and they chirp back to her and to each other from inside their shells. But the egg industry treats them like egg-producing objects, not individuals. In the U.S., the egg industry exploits more than 305 million hens each year, stealing their eggs, cutting off the end of their beaks with a hot blade, and killing their male chicks.

Vegan Ham Roast with Maple Glaze

This sham “ham” is a showstopping centerpiece for your Easter celebration, with a sweet maple glaze that creates a golden-brown crust. Choosing this roast or a store-bought option like Tofurky’s Plant Based Ham Style Roast with Amber Ale Glaze spares the lives of countless pigs who are used for their flesh. Pigs are playful, intelligent, friendly animals who love many of the same things as humans, like listening to music, playing ball, and even getting massages. Keep them off your Easter table and make this delicious recipe instead:

Vegan Hot Cross Buns with Cardamom and Rum

These classic yeasted sweet buns are made without eggs taken from chickens or milk stolen from cows, so you can feel great about participating in this Easter tradition.

Vegan ‘Rack of Lamb’

We love this super-innovative recipe for “rack of lamb” that no baby sheep were killed to create. Lambs leap with excitement, cuddle with their favorite toys, and love to play with their flockmates. They deserve to enjoy their full lives in peace, instead of being killed for Easter dinner when they’re less than a year old.
