Sixteen Menu Ideas for a Vegan Easter ( Pascha ) (12 GF)

Kali Anastasi! Good Resurrection! (Icon from Kykkos Monastery)
Here are some ideas for what to serve at your upcoming Pascha meal - whether you're serving an all-Vegan feast, or serving a traditional Omnivore feast with some Vegan dishes for variety (or for guests).  

I don't know who all of my readers are, but I know of at least two groups: 1) dedicated full time Vegans and 2) Orthodox Christians who are looking for "fasting" recipes for Lenten Seasons, such as Great Lent, Advent, and Wednesdays and Fridays throughout the year, but when the big Christian Feast days hit, are not looking at my blog!

This post is for the first group, who may be looking for festive dishes to serve for their upcoming Pascha Feast ("Pascha" is the Orthodox Christian word for Easter) 

To the second group, I simply say "Kali Anastasi!" "Christos Anesti" - enjoy your (
very non Vegan ; ) Feast!

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words! I think probably most of my readers aren't Vegan - which pleases me. Everyone benefits from more plant based meals, even if they do eat other foods, too : ) So glad you visited!

Welcome!
Please, DO chime in! : )

If you want to share a link to a pertinent and supportive post of your own that directly relates to my post (if, for instance, you also have a great vegan pancake recipe, or a post about Christmas) I don't mind a bit!

I encourage any questions about methods, measurements, or cooking times, and comments about typos, broken links, mistakes, omissions, etc. I also welcome thoughtful questions - even if you disagree with me.

I often take a few days to post your comment, and a few after that to reply. Please don't think I'm ignoring you if my response is slow - I'm just not always connected to technology.

Delighted to have you here! Post away!
