We’re all staying at home for Easter this year, and it’s a time to give gratitude for what we have, our friends, family and Earth. Take time to enjoy your regular Easter favourites this weekend together – whether it’s on your own, with your family, your household or via a Zoom, Meet Up, Google Hangouts, Whatsapp, Skype…you name it.
We’ve put together our top Easter menu to give you some inspo:
At this time of year, there are 2 things we cannot not enjoy…first – pickled fish. second – Hot Cross Buns! Make your own pickled fish or grab our new Food Lover’s Signature Pickled Snoek or Hake – enjoy it as is or atop a Hot Cross Bun!
Mains: Seafood or Lamb?
Snoek and Easter go hand in hand and why not braai a whole snoek over the weekend, served with traditional roosterkoek and cinnamon sweet potatoes? Try this lightly smoked braai snoek: https://foodloversmarket.co.za/recipes/lightly-smoked-braai-snoek/
Lamb is not only a rich source of protein, but it also provides a good source of vitamins like iron, zinc & Vitamin B12.
There is no other meaty dish as delicious to complete your Easter feasting table – you can use leftover meat to add to a pasta or put some pastry over flaked lamb and have yourself a wonderful lamb pie that can be frozen for another emergency meal for the next week. Try this leg of lamb stuffed with granola: https://foodloversmarket.co.za/recipes/butterflied-leg-of-lamb-with-granola-stuffing/
