Spice Up Your Easter Feast: Try These African-Inspired Menu Ideas!

Easter is just around the corner! Guess you know what that means. Time for a delicious family feast! Yes, we know bunny cakes are a regular but you should try something new this season. Why not celebrate Easter the African way with vibrant spices, delicious rice, and sweet treats that will have your taste buds do a happy dance? Here are some menu ideas that will spice your Easter celebration, making it an unforgettable experience.

Jollof Rice

No Easter celebration is complete without the legendary jollof rice! The rich tomato base and aromatic blend of spices will have everyone digging in for seconds (and thirds!). You can pair jollof rice with salad, grilled chicken or fish. For that zesty touch, add our African pepper sauce.

Fried Rice

Take your taste buds on a trip to Nigeria with our flavorful Nigerian fried rice. Packed with veggies and a special blend of spices, this dish will surely be a hit at your Easter gathering. Like jollof rice, you can pair it with any side of your choice.

Coconut Rice

Ditch the mashed potatoes, embrace the coconutty goodness!  With just the right balance of creamy coconut flavor and aromatic spices, this dish is sure to impress even the pickiest eaters. Our fragrant coconut rice mix or seasoning will have you serving up fluffy, tasty rice that perfectly complements any Easter dish.

Puff Puff

Easter just wouldn't be Easter without some delicious treats! Skip the store-bought donuts and entertain your guests with homemade puff puffs. These fluffy, golden brown delights are a beloved snack across the continent, and with Flourish Puff Puff Mix, you can recreate the authentic taste in your kitchen.


It's not Easter without hot cross buns! Whip up a batch of buns perfect for nibbling on throughout the day. Whether served warm with butter or stuffed with your favorite fillings, these soft snacks are the perfect ending to a memorable Easter meal.

Pepper Soup

What’s a better way to prepare for the main course meal than taking an appetizer? Pepper soup is a popular appetizer in West African cuisine, particularly in Nigeria. It's a spicy soup made with meat (like chicken, goat, or beef), fish, or even offal, flavored with a mix of chili peppers, nutmeg, and other spices. It's a great way to awaken your taste buds and get your palate ready for the main meal.


And that caps our list of menu ideas that will add more color and joy to your Easter feast. You can serve these dishes alongside drinks like Zobo (Hibiscus drink). Naturally sweet and tart, Zobo makes a refreshing drink for Easter. You can spruce up the taste by adding chopped fruits like pineapple and oranges for extra flavor. 

We understand how stressful it can be trying to whip up these meals. Thus, Flourish Spices and African Food have a blend of spices and seasonings that will make it easy for you. Some of these products come with raw rice and processed veggies so you don’t need to worry about chopping carrots and the likes.
