Spring Holiday Menu Inspiration + Brunch Dishes (all vegan + gluten-free)

VeganGluten-FreeDairy FreeVegetarian

I combed through my blog and rounded-up my favorite spring holiday recipes.  I included my top picks for spring appetizers, soups, salads, sides, dessert and brunch recipes.  I hope this Spring Holiday Menu Inspiration round-up provides you with plenty of ideas as you think about your menus for the upcoming spring holidays.  

All of these Spring Holiday Menu Inspiration recipes are vegan, soy-free, gluten-free and peanut-free.  Many are also nut-free and refined sugar-free.  If you make any of these recipes for your spring gatherings, please snap a pic and tag #eatingbyelaine and @eatingbyelaine on InstagramTwitter or Facebook so I can see your creations.

Enjoy, and I can’t wait to see what you make!
