Easter is Here!

April means Easter is here! Another great time for getting together with family and friends and enjoying delicious foods. When Easter rolls around it can be hard to stick to the healthy eating regime you’ve worked so hard to put in place and resist the temptation of eating a Cadbury egg or 6. With so many healthy treat-making innovations around these days it’s making it a lot easier to curb those sweet cravings the healthy way.

Our recipe for Fudgy Choc Bites are the perfect Easter treat that won’t have you feeling like you’re missing out this Easter but without the guilt. Plus, they’re so sweet and delicious the kids will have no idea they’re actually healthy; helping to tone down those sugar-crazed afternoons I usually experience when the kids have had too many chocolate eggs. Click Here to check out the recipe!

For me, Easter isn’t just about the sweets but getting everyone together and what brings people together better than food? I have a few delicious recipes up my sleeve that I’ll be making this Easter weekend that I’d love to share with you.

If you’re one to follow the no-meat rule on Good Friday we have loads of great fish recipes for you to try. Like our Moroccan Fish Fillets, a great recipe for grilled fish with a punchy flavour by adding our Moroccan Ras El Hanout spice blend. Or our Spice-Poached Fish with Cous Cous Salad, a light dish of rockling infused with Lemon Myrtle and Saffron – super healthy and super tasty! And for the kids you can’t go past our Salt ‘n’ Pepper Calamari, a great alternatively to unhealthy calamari from the fish and chip shop and they’ll absolutely love it!

For Easter Sunday lunch in my family we always make lamb. Depending on the weather we BBQ it, roast it or occasionally, slow cook it. A few of my go-to lamb recipes are: Egyptian Dukkha-Crusted Lamb Cutlets, an excellent one if the weather gods are good to us and the sun is shining. Serve with a few simple salads and they’ll be a hit at your BBQ.

If it’s looking a little cooler I can’t resist making my Moroccan Lamb Shanks – tender falling-off-the-bone meat with aromatic Moroccan spices, the ultimate comfort food.

Or, if I’m looking to make a simple roast I get a rump or leg and rub generously with our Greek Gyros Seasoning and place in the middle of the table with roast chat potatoes and our Middle Eastern Cos and Green Bean Salad for a great serve-yourself lunch.

We would like to wish you all a very safe and happy Easter and hope some of our Easter recipes can give you a little inspiration. If you make anything from our site be sure to upload it onto social media and tag us, we love seeing what you create!

Ciao,
