Who says you have to eat corned beef and cabbage on St. Patty’s Day? Here’s a selection of veganized and healthied up traditional Irish dishes as well as some fun green fare that will make any Irish eyes smile.
Lucky Leprechaun Dip
This rich, creamy dip from Healthy. Happy. Life is perfect for a St. Patty’s Day party.
Vegan Corned Beef and Cabbage
You can always count on Fat Free Vegan for healthy vegan versions of almost any recipe like this Vegan Corned Beef and Cabbage.
Vegan Shepherd’s Pie
My Vegan Cookbook’s version of a traditional Shepherd’s Pie uses lentils instead of meat and has a full beefy flavor thanks to slowly caramelized onions.
Parsnip Irish Soda Bread
Cupcake Project’s sugar-free soda bread gets a subtle sweetness, and health boost, from parsnips. This is not a vegan recipe, but can be veganized by substituting plant milk soured with a small amount of lemon juice for the buttermilk.
Mint-Lime Spring Green Fruit Salad
Babble’s bright green colored healthy salad is perfect for a St. Patrick’s Day lunch, brunch or dinner.
Skip McDonald’s fattening shamrock shake and make Chocolate Covered Katie’s healthy, minty version instead.
Vegan Banana (Spinach) Ice Cream
Give Popsugar’s luscious sugar-free vegan ice cream the green light for St. Patty’s Day.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
A great collection Celeste!
Great post! Simply roasted cabbage is even a good option!
What a beautiful post of green goodies! Seems like there is always more delicious food to try and make than time available. Happy St. Paddy’s Day!
I hear you about the time chica – boy do I hear ya!!! Happy St. Patty’s Day! Celeste 🙂
Guest I will never be a true Vegan. Once a year I crave corned beef and cabbage and that’s St Patty’s Day. At least one of the two main ingredients is a veggie 🙂
Hehe, you sound like I used to be. I never in a million years thought I could give up dairy and now I love being dairy-free. Still, I get it. Happy St. Patty’s Day!
Thanks Celeste, nice collection of st paddy’s recipes. Funny how in the USA you say patty not paddy…for st Patrick.
You say St. Paddy’s Day – how interesting! Well, whatever you call it, have a great one chica!! Celeste 🙂
Nice collection, Celeste, that parsnip soda bread looks very interesting…
Doesn’t it? I’m gonna try that recipe for sure! 🙂
Share on our FB page to all our peeps!
I love them all! Green is my favourite colour. 🙂
I’m really liking the green icecream and I’m happy to see it can be made without an icecream maker! Happy St. Patty’s, Celeste!
These all look delicious! Yum!
Those look really wonderful!
Hi Celeste, Thanks for doing the research on these great looking recipes which look like they could be tasty for any day of the year!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day my dear and compassionate friend!!
Thanks for all these yummy recipes, must try one for sure … I already make a similar cabbage dish, and I’m lovin’ those little potatoes!!!
Please check out my California Dreaming that YOU inspired!!
Just checked out your California Dreaming post Carmen – loved it!!
That’s a yummy list! :3
You included quite a variety and I am so excited to try the shake and the dip, Celeste! I am a big ‘snacker!!’ Thanks for including another way to have corned beef and cabbage. Can you believe this? I saw the price of corned beef while shopping and had just cabbage and potatoes on St. Pat’s Day! Great big smiles for the green mint salad, too!
I bet the stores raised the price of corned beef for St. Patty’s Day. I guess it made you eat like a vegan for the day, so how was it? Celeste 🙂
oh my goodness, so many recipes to try!
