Easter Feast

Easter is the only holiday I'm "allowed" to host since I don't want meat in my house or on my dishes.  I think my family fared pretty well with this meatless meal if I do say so myself.
From left to right:
Lidia's Ligurian Potato Salad - This time with lots of extra parsley and horseradish pickles!
Roasted Asparagus
Cousins Quiche from Sweet Art, a vegetarian bakery by my house.  Red onion, green onion, leek
Curried Carrot Salad - with lots and lots of mint from the garden!
Red quinoa, fresh peas, tomatoes, basil, garlic, red wine vinegar and olive oil
