By the time Easter arrives, winter storms are just a memory in most parts of the country, and farmers’ markets are bursting with spring’s colorful seasonal produce. It’s the perfect time to give some new twists to your old Easter standbys—and it’s easy, too, with a pantry full of versatile Kikkoman products.
If lamb is the entrée of choice on your family’s Easter table, try something a little different this year—Spring Rack of Lamb with Roasted Asparagus. Instead of the traditional leg of lamb, baste an elegant rack of lamb with a glaze made with Kikkoman Soy Sauce , apricot jam and thyme.
Sides are just as important as the main dish, and make it easy to offer choices that will please everyone. Even the lactose intolerant can enjoy Garlicky Scalloped Potatoes because they’re made with Kikkoman Pearl® Organic Soymilk —just substitute dairy-free margarine for the butter in the recipe.
Do-ahead salads like Zucchini Slaw help streamline the preparations for a big holiday meal. Shredded zucchini and carrots tossed in a dressing made with Kikkoman Soy Sauce and Kikkoman Rice Vinegar, celery seed and mustard make a spritely slaw that’s not as heavy as mayonnaise-based versions.
Looking to take a break from baked ham and try something a bit lighter this year? Give poultry a go—Kikkoman Hoisin Sauce adds a savory glaze to Bronzed Cornish Hens to make this dish a hit at your Easter celebration.
Instead of a big dinner, some folks celebrate Easter with a festive brunch. If that’s your family tradition, an Easy Ham & Vegetable Quiche made with Kikkoman Pearl® Organic Soymilk makes a delicious addition to the holiday table.
