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!
