Raw Recipes: Orange Butter Lettuce Salad

At Hail Merry, we believe that nature got it right the first time! Eating foods as close to their natural state as possible not only tastes better but gives you good glow! That is why our gluten-free dessert snacks are dehydrated at low temperatures rather than baked, and crafted with pure ingredients like organic extra virgin coconut oil from pristine tropical groves and organic maple syrup from Vermont family farms.

Taste, Enjoy, Glow!
Namaste

Gluten-Free & Vegetarian Easter Recipes: Roasted Asparagus with Lemon Thyme Pecans

Merry’s Gluten-Free Easter Feast is a vegetarian celebration of spring featuring this zesty Roasted Asparagus Recipe with Hail Merry Lemon Thyme Pecans.

Easter is the splendiferous spring rite of family, friends and tradition. Who doesn’t love dyeing eggs in hues of pastel blue, lavender, pink and pale yellow? Or enjoying a weekend filled with Easter egg hunts, parades, bunnies, and delicious fresh food that happens to be vegetarian and gluten-free to feed your body royally?

Merry’s Spring Holiday Menu is all about eating more plants, a vegetarian celebration of spring. After a day of nibbling on jellybeans and chocolate eggs, we start the feast off with an appetizer assortment of fresh cut vegetables, olives and gluten-free crackers served with a creamy Raw Ranch Dressing and an exotic Brazilian Nut Hummus.

Next comes the resurrection of spring, represented by a vegetarian supper of delicately seasoned Roasted Asparagus with Lemon Thyme Pecans (recipe below), an alkalizing Kale Salad, an earthy Polenta with Creamy Wild Mushroom Sauce, and Roasted Rainbow Maple Carrots with Sunflower Seeds. (See our vegan substitutions below.)

The grand finale is a dessert spread of heavenly Lemon, Coconut and Chocolate Miracle Tarts and Macaroons  with fresh berries and green tea.  A blissful ending to a miraculous day!

Easter spells out beauty, the rare beauty of new life.  ~S.D. Gordon
