Most years, my family gets together with my mom and stepdad, along with his family, to celebrate Easter. Every since I was little, my mom treats Easter like it’s a second Thanksgiving.
We eat turkey, mashed potatoes, and even sometimes cranberry sauce if it’s hosted at my parent’s house. And while I love Thanksgiving, I don’t always love having the exact same meal twice a year.
One of the best parts about Easter is that you can enjoy completely different foods than you can in the middle of Fall. Spring is a time for lightened up food, enjoying those first few veggies of the year, and knowing that more sunshine is on it’s way soon.
Easter foods to me are eggs, carrots, peas, finger foods, ham, asparagus, and lemon desserts. Of course, Easter foods might look different to you.
Which is why I’ve rounded up 25 delicious recipes that would be perfect for an Easter get-together. Whether it’s Easter brunch, lunch, or dinner – you’ll find something delicious in this roundup.
Everything in this post is both gluten-free and dairy-free, so you can mix and match different ideas to make a perfect-to-you Easter menu.
I hope you find some inspiration from this post to create a delicious gluten-free dairy-free Easter meal that’s just right for your family and how you like to spend this time.
And as a side note, I know of course, that not everyone celebrates Easter. In my household, Easter is about family, making memories, and spending time together.
For my extended family, the larger meaning of Easter is the focus of the day. I know that we can all share love and be together. You can use these recipes as inspiration for a lovely spring get-together menu if you don’t celebrate Easter.
Do what you love and enjoy who you’re with.

Gluten-free Dairy-free Easter Appetizer Recipes
For a few bites before a big Easter meal, you might want to try some of these gluten-free Easter appetizer recipes. Varying in the amount of effort you put in, you can enjoy some easy tortilla pinwheels or hummus and crudités or put in a little more work with quinoa fritters and a homemade aioli.

I love tortilla pinwheels as an appetizer, because they’re so easy to put together! These are great for serving at an Easter dinner or get together, because they use corn tortillas (naturally gluten-free), sliced deli meat (make sure yours is gluten-free), taco seasoning and avocados.
You can easily swap out the taco seasoning for another flavor, like ranch dressing or just salt and pepper if you like too!
