Viva!'s Guide to a Vegan Easter | Viva! - The Vegan Charity

With Easter only one week away, we’ve compiled our top tips on how to have a great vegan Easter.

With all pubs and restaurants closed because of coronavirus, we’ve picked our favourite Vegan Recipe Club recipes so you can still celebrate Easter with delicious vegan food without leaving the house.

Easter Sunday Menu

Vegan Eggs Benedict

This vegan take on the classic recipe is the perfect way to start your Easter Sunday. Marinated tofu makes a tasty alternative to eggs and the hollandaise sauce will really remind you of this brunch dish. It’s a little more effort than most breakfast recipes but the results are definitely worth it.

Chestnut, Mushroom & Red Wine Pithivier

This vegan roast dinner is as beautiful to look at as it is to eat. A deliciously rich mushroom and chestnut filling is delicately enclosed with soft puff pastry to combine harmonious flavours and textures in this veganised french dish. You can even make it gluten-free by using gluten-free pastry. Pair with roast potatoes to have an amazing Sunday lunch without any animal products.

Blueberry & Whipped Cream Aquafaba Meringue Nests

If you’re new to vegan cooking, you might be thinking ‘what on earth is aquafaba?’Well, it’s that gooey liquid found in tinned beans such as chickpeas or butterbeans. Sounds weird, right?! But trust us on this one! It acts similarly to egg whites due to the high protein content, meaning you whisk it up to make meringues and a whole other range of goodies. Dollop on our delicious topping for a burst of flavour.

Gift Ideas

The early bird catches the worm, and, unfortunately, we are already sold out of all our vegan Easter eggs! We do have some other Easter gifts that are perfect if you want something a little different.

Vegan Surprise Treat Box - £20.00

Our surprise treat box is filled with a random selection of our favourite vegan chocolates, sweets, fudges and biscuits. Each box has a unique mix of goodies so it’s a great way to find your new favourite treats, or help you out if you’re really indecisive!

Vegan is a State of Kind Jumper - £25.00

Where your heart on your sleeve this Easter with our favourite slogan: Vegan is a State of Kind. Ethically made and designed to last, this jumper is kind to both the planet and animals. It’s the perfect way to positively share the vegan message everywhere you go, which is what Viva! is all about!

Fluffy Chick Soft Toy - £7.00

If you’re looking for an Easter Egg hunt companion or a cute gift for the little ones, this cute fluffy chick is the perfect Easter gift. Super soft and ethically made, you can know your present is cruelty-free and helping us to continue our campaigns.

The wellbeing of our staff and customers is of the highest importance to us. We have taken the necessary steps to protect both our team and loyal customers, by implementing working from home and only having one staff member working in the shop at a time. Rest assured, our shop will remain open for as long as possible because even when the world is on lockdown, the fight for animal liberation never stops. Support our work by shopping with us here.
