Easter Recipes

With Easter on the horizon, the allure of chocolate indulgence is hard to resist. However, amidst the excitement of sweet treats, striking a balance is essential. Let’s celebrate Easter with decadence and nutrition in mind this year. We’ve put together some recipes that pair perfectly with chocolate delights, starting the day with a flavorful Shakshuka and repurposing leftover chocolate into Hot Cross Bun Energy Balls. It’s all about enjoying the holiday while simultaneously keeping our energy levels stable and our bodies nourished.


A colourful and nutritious way to start the day. Serve with fresh sourdough for a perfectly nutritionally complete meal, setting you up well for the day!

Ingredients (serves 2):

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 yellow pepper
  • 2 red onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 can chopped tomatoes


  1. Dice the onion, slice the red peppers and finely grate the garlic.
  2. Place in a large frying pan on the heat, and add a little oil. Add the onion, peppers and garlic.
  3. Begin to fry until the onion begins to wilt down. Add the spices and herbs and fry to coat all the veg.
  4. Preheat the oven to 170ºC. 
  5. Once all the veg has cooked down and it begins to colour add the tomato paste and mix through the veg.
  6. Cook the tomato paste for 4-5 minutes then add the chopped tomatoes. Cook for a further 20 minutes on a low heat.
  7. Make 4 wells in the top of the dish and crack the eggs into them.
  8. Place the pan into the oven and cook for 10-15 minutes or until the egg white is cooked and the egg yolk is still slightly runny.
  9. Remove from the oven and serve!
