Easter Feast at Home

Easter Feast at Home

The Easter is coming and you have to be prepared with the proper meals if you are willing to welcome your family and friends in your home for a delicious holiday lunch.

You are an adult now and you should start to think like one and to act like one. If you like cooking, hosting family and friends gatherings is your thing. I’m sure that you will be satisfied when you hear the “Mmm” and “Yummy” sounds of your guests while they eat the delicious meals that you have served them.

Holidays like Easter are the perfect occasions to gather your closest ones and have a good time with good food and good beverages.

Down below you will find ideas for a full lunch menu – salad, main meal and a dessert. Let’s get started:

The salad – Warm spring vegetables.

The spring is here and we should change the heavy foods with lighter once that will turn us back in shape, ready for the swimsuit. And there is nothing better than a light, green salad, but this one doesn’t include any leaves. Take a look at the ingredients and start with the cooking:

  • 2 large zucchini;

  • The juice of 1 lemon;

  • 220g asparagus spears;

  • 100g frozen peas;

  • 100g frozen broad beans;

  • 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil;

  • Small pack of parsley.

Slice the zucchini in ribbons carefully with a vegetable peeler. Put the ribbons in a bowl and sprinkle them with salt and pour the lemon juice.

Wash the asparagus and trim them. Cook them into a large pan of water. Boil for 2 minutes. Then add the frozen peas and the beans for another minute. Drain the vegetables well.

Add the dried vegetables to the ribbons of zucchini and sprinkle with the olive oil and the roughly chopped parsley. Season to taste.

The main course – Layered thyme potatoes.

This one is meatless and light too and the thyme brings great scent of the meal. You will need:

  • 2kg of white potatoes

  • 140g butter

  • The leaves of small pack of thyme

  • Sea salt or rock salt.

Preheat the oven to 200C. While you wait, peel and slice the potatoes in really thin slices. Try to slice them really thin, almost like chips.

Then lay the slices on tea towel until completely dry. Mix the potatoes slices and the melted butter in large bowl, then sprinkle with the thyme and the some salt.

Then assemble the potato slices vertically in a tin pan. Sprinkle again with salt. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until crisp.

You can use this meal as course meal or as a garnish for some kind of meat – a lamb, beef or chicken.

Dessert – Easter bread.

It is really difficult to be made, that’s why I recommend you to buy it from the local bakery and enjoy the good work of the professionals.

Decorate the table with Easter decoration, make some hot chocolate for welcoming beverage and serve the delicious meals.
