Vegan Essentials for Easter

Dried herbs. Dried herbs like basil, rosemary, and thyme can elevate the flavor profile of your dishes. You can create a complex broth, or incorporate them directly into your recipes.
Spices. Turmeric, coriander, cumin, nutmeg, and black pepper are among the popular spices commonly used in Easter dishes. Be sure your spice rack is well-stocked!
Vegan milk. For those creamy dishes or desserts, vegan milk is a must. Choose from almond milk, soy milk, oat milk, or even coconut milk.
Seasonal vegetables. Spring vegetables such as asparagus, radishes, peas, and carrots are popular ingredients for your main plant-based Easter recipes or as side dishes.
Nuts and seeds. Add protein, texture, and flavor to your dishes using nuts and seeds such as cashews, walnuts, sunflower seeds, or pinenuts.
Vegan pastry. Prepare dishes like pies, quiches, pastries, or various appetizers with vegan pastry. You can easily find vegan pastry in most supermarkets.
Flavor enhancers. Include ingredients that will boost the flavor of your dishes such as vegetable stock cubes, tomato paste, nutritional yeast, mushroom powder, vegan butter, soy sauce, agave syrup, and more.
