Need some ideas on how to serve a simple, dairy-free Easter meal the whole family will enjoy?
For over a decade, we have managed to create tasty classic dishes that family has come to expect year after year.
So we thought we’d share those with you just in case you’re looking for ideas.
Each year, my husband’s parents host Easter at their house, and we are blessed that they understand and can accommodate our food allergies.
My mother-in-law even prepares dishes our food allergy son can eat as she’s one of our few trusted food allergy cooks.
To stay as safe as possible, my mother-in-law saves the labels for us, knows cross-contamination protocol, and gives us a good debriefing when we arrive. We take our son through the food line first and pull out and label all his leftovers for later.
Now here’s our tried and true dairy-free and nut-free Easter menu with recipe links in case you need some ideas!
