Easter is here! And it’s time to celebrate the rabbit, the chicks, the chocolate search, and that many meat-eaters are now permitted to go back to their guilty pleasure (spoiler alert): meat. 

As you may already know, Easter celebrations are packed with tradition, pleasure, and, of course, tasty food. But this year, we invite you to give it a Latin twist. Why not add a vivid change by introducing the rich cuisines of Latin America into your Easter celebration? From sweet to savory, these recipes provide a unique and delectable way to commemorate the holiday and broaden your gastronomic horizons. Could this turn into anything better? We doubt it. 

So, here are three Latin dishes full of flavor to invite you to travel down south before looking for the Easter eggs hidden in your garden. And, also, to enjoy the meat come back. 

First things first, and we are starting light: the appetizers. 

Let us introduce you to Roasted Roots with Wasabi Aioli. Calling all veggie lovers and spice enthusiasts! This dish isn’t your average roasted root situation. We’re taking earthy, caramelized vegetables to the next level with a vibrant kick from a homemade wasabi aioli. Imagine tender carrots, sweet potatoes, and parsnips roasted to perfection, then drizzled with a creamy sauce that packs a sinus-clearing punch, balanced by a hint of garlic and tangy mayo.

It’s a symphony of textures and flavors that’ll tantalize your taste buds and leave you wanting more. So, grab your root veggies, crank up the heat (metaphorically, of course), and get ready for a side dish that’s anything but ordinary!

Now, the MAIN DISH, the paradise come back… Matambre

Have you ever heard of Matambre before? Forget the dry, pressed meatloaf from your youth. Matambre, a traditional meal from Argentina, Uruguay, and Paraguay, elevates flank steak to a new level. Consider a delicious, thin cut of beef liberally seasoned and packed with a rich tapestry of tastes, including savory herbs, acidic pickles, creamy cheeses, and even a dash of spice. This isn’t your average rolled-up roast; it’s a taste explosion ready to be unwrapped.

But the trip does not stop there. Matambre can be slow-cooked to soft perfection in the oven or grilled on the grill for a smokey char. Slice it thin and relish the melt-in-your-mouth texture, or serve it as a robust main course with chimichurri or a fresh salad.

So, prepare your head and taste buds for a new world of flavor. Matambre is more than just a beef meal; it’s a cultural experience, like a story on a plate. Are you prepared to start on this delightful adventure?

Let’s wrap up this special celebration with a flourish of vibrant colors and decadent chocolate treats, spreading cheer and laughter along the way!
