Mother's Day Lunch Recipes
Nothing shows your appreciation for mums better than a spread of homemade, delicious food. Here are some top picks to ensure your lunch together is as special as it possibly can be.
This spring green tart is a tasty and easy centrepiece to a lovely lunch spread. Easily adaptable, it’s great with the vegetables you’ll have on hand and adds a brightness to your lunch. Tender green vegetables and crisp, butter pastry make this a number sure to please everyone at the table.
This asparagus salad is a great accompaniment to the tart, sharing several key ingredients (meaning you can use up your ingredients at once) but making something that still tastes different. It’s fresh, herby, and the giant couscous adds a great bite to this salad, making it a must-have side this mother’s day.
Is it too early in the year for corn on the cob? Though it may not be summer quite yet, we’re saying we have to make an exception for this delicious recipe. The deeply savoury miso compliments the sweetness of the corn perfectly, making a rich and bright side addition welcome at any table.
This sandwich is crazy flavourful and quick, and it deserves a place on the mother’s day spread. It can be made in under 10 minutes and is very cupboard and leftover-veg friendly (the perfect use for that rogue celery stick you’ve got from making bolognese this week).
These tahini truffles are great as an amuse bouche, if you will, before settling onto an even sweeter treat. You can make them in under 20 minutes and they are so easy and both light and decadent — a true mind-boggling feat.
A perfectly spice carrot cake is the more-ish treat you need to bake for this occasion. Creamy vegan icing, fluffy and fragrant sponge — it’s the perfect fluffy treat to have with your lunch for everyone to enjoy.
