All you need for an easy Easter feast

Essentials ingredients and recipes for a low-fuss dinner for six

Hosting this year's Easter meal? It need not be stressful – here are our shortcuts to a brilliantly simple menu your guests will love:

THE MAIN EVENT: Rosemary roast lamb

Our lamb is sourced from Australian producer Thomas Foods, where the animals are free to roam across clean and fertile land. For this recipe, all you'll need is five ingredients and you'll be well on your way to a showstopping centrepiece.


Shredded asparagus, flaked almond and fennel salad

Shred asparagus and fennel as thinly as you can. Drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice and top with flaked almonds and toasted breadcrumbs.

Griddled asparagus with balsamic and parmesan

Griddle blanched asparagus spears until lightly charred. Drizzle with balsamic syrup and scatter with parmesan shavings.

Cheesecake pots and hot chocolate soufflés. No need for recipes – just follow the easy instructions on the pack.


1. Want top-notch gravy that’s full of flavour? Stir a spoonful or two of Bisto powder into the mix.
2. Mint sauce is a classic accompaniment to roast lamb. Add a splash of white grape vinegar and a few fresh mint leaves to make it extra-special.
3. For a quick twist on tradition, cover lamb in a marinade made from yogurt and spinneysFOOD Tomato Pesto.
4. A generous sprinkling of our flaky sea salt really boosts the natural flavour of lamb.
