Recipes to try with your partner this Easter

If you’re used to making all the big meals for special occasions like Christmas and bank holidays, well no longer. This Easter holiday, get your partner involved and try out these springtime recipes that will elevate your lunch.

Slow roasted lamb

Spring lambs are often associated with this time period and are bursting with flavour. Slow-roasted lamb can help you avoid spending all day cooking in your kitchen and can be prepped in as little as 15 minutes. Create a delicious Easter Sunday lunch when you when you buy lamb from the butchers instead of the supermarket.

Pair your slow-roasted lamb with crispy roast potatoes, firm baby carrots and rich, thick gravy made from the pan drippings. Roast your lamb on a bed of garlic or onion and smother the meat with a classic garlic rosemary rub. Present with freshly cut lemons or sprigs of rosemary.

Chocolate bark

Easter is notoriously a time to indulge in chocolate so if you have a sweet tooth, why not combine your easter favourites to create a delightful treat? Simple and easy to make, you and your partner can have fun decorating your festive chocolate bark with handfuls of colourful mini eggs, bright sprinkles and other Easter treats.

For something more decadent, pair decadent dark chocolate with chopped pistachio or coconut and a sprinkle of salt for a sweet and salty mix of chocolate bark. Prep time is only 15 minutes, but it needs to harden at room temperature for two to four hours. You could pop it in the fridge to speed things up, but this will cause the chocolate to snap rather than cut.

Pizza rustica

This dish is an Italian easter pie that can seem like a more indulgent version of a quiche Lorraine. Knowing how to make pizza rustica is sure to impress any guests you have over for Easter lunch, and better yet – it’s not even that complicated to make!

This flaky, buttery pie is filled with eggs, ricotta, salami and cheese, and is a staple for Italian families over Easter. It marks the end of Lent for those who have fasted and incorporates fresh, traditionally springtime ingredients that are bursting with flavour and can easily be found at your local supermarket.

risotto with asparagus

Asparagus risotto

A classic spring vegetable, asparagus makes a perfect addition to a hearty risotto that’s sure to go down well with your Easter dinner guests. The bright green colours match the springtime perfectly and the fresh flavours are heaven for your taste buds.

Most of the ingredients you’ll need, you probably already have them at home in your cupboards. Pair with peas and onions, or add a splash of wine or vermouth as an extra.
