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.

    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 :-)

    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!
