Although it might not feel like it, Easter is right around the corner. Which means spring, rebirths, and, of course, an obnoxious amount of chocolate eggs. While Easter doesn't have a clear cut menu like Christmas does, it is the perfect time for a massive Sunday roast and to try out some new recipe ideas. And for all the plant-based eaters out there, there's no need to miss out on the fun as there are plenty of vegan Easter treats you can try your hand at making this year. (Because, let's face it, what else are we doing during this lockdown?)
