Easter Menu Ideas 2024: Delicious Recipes to Impress Your Guests

Easter is almost here!

Though it doesn’t always get the online attention that Christmas does, we honestly love it just as much–and even if you don’t celebrate it in a religious sense, you can still hold a party to welcome in the coming spring.

This year, we’ve got lots of Easter-forward recipes cooking for you, including an exclusive sweet treat that we promise you will not be able to get enough of. Read on for what’s cooking.

Carrot-Parsnip Cake Recipe by Casa de Suna; Recipes using Fall Flavors; easter menu

The Sweet Treat: Carrot-Parsnip Cake with Rosemary

We know, we know, we’re not exactly starting this recipe roundup in the right order: but how could we resist the opportunity to share this carrot-parsnip cake with rosemary with you right away? We’ve taken the classic carrot cake to new heights by adding sweet and earthy parsnips for an extra nutritional punch. Because if there’s ever a time to treat yourself, it’s with a thematic sweet like this one.

The Side: Soupe au Pistou

A soup, for Easter? Trust us on this one. This soupe au pistou is packed with the most delicious spring flavors you can find: there’s carrots, fennel, and, of course, leeks are involved. It’s healthy, it’s hearty, and it’s easy to make–what’s not to love?

Pissaladière recipe by Casa de Suna; easter menu

The Main: Pissaladière

Anchovy filets, olive, and thyme come together atop a flatbread to make the perfect light lunch–ideal for dipping into your springy soupe au pistou as well, bien sûr. One bite will have you feeling like you’re eating your Easter lunch right in the middle of a springtime afternoon in Provence. And who doesn’t want that?

Grilled Lamb Chops with Cucumber-Mint Relish and Labneh recipe by Casa de Suna

The Meat-Eater’s Main: Grilled Lamb Chops with Cucumber-Mint Relish and Labneh

Those who grew up celebrating Easter and/or attending related events are likely familiar with the tradition of serving lamb as the meal. While lamb itself isn’t exactly a novel suggestion for this holiday, we can promise you you’ve never had lamb like this at an Easter meal. The cucumber-mint relish and labneh are good enough to stand alone (and delicious spooned atop the Pissaladière). You’ll make this well after the holiday.

Cucumber Basil Smash; easter menu

The Drink: Cucumber Basil Smash

Like we said, whether you celebrate the holiday or not, Easter also serves as a seasonal signal; it celebrates all of the new life that comes with the spring season. And with new seasons, come new cocktails. It’s around this time of year that we say goodbye to our months of mulled wine and happily trade them for drinks like these: the ultra-refreshing cucumber basil smash. From the cucumbers and basil to the floral Lillet (or Elderflower, whatever you have on hand), it’s the type of cocktail we refer to as “dangerously refreshing.” Sip responsibly!
