Happy St. Patrick's Day Everyone!

Post by: morinaga on March 17, 2016.

Hopefully...

you all survived the rude awakening of setting your clocks an hour ahead last Sunday for daylight savings. But fear not, a much more entertaining day has arrived; and as most of us are aware, March 17th, is St. Patrick's Day (Or Lá Fhéile Pádraig in Gaelic).

Ireland, Emerald Isle The Emerald Isle

St. Patrick's Day...

is a favorite for many Americans. It's a time for Guiness, green attire and the one time of year that everyone is apparently a little Irish. If you'd like to brush up on some facts about the color green, why corned beef and cabbage is so popular and where leprechauns come from check out this article.

 

A vegan spin...

If you love the indulgent favorites of Ireland, here are a couple of vegan versions that you might like:

Vegan Shepard's Pie:

Shepard's pie is a hearty dish that is satisfying and filling. Try this one out.

This dish is super easy to make and so hearty! It's packed with mushrooms and tofu, then topped with creamy mashed potatoes. I kept the veggies traditional - peas and carrots - for a no-frills bowl of comfort food. Becky Stripe

Irish Lager Stew:

Stew with a little lager? Now that sounds like quite a meal.

Mashed Potato Casserole With Broccoli and a Cauliflower Gravy:

Casserole is always a family favorite, and if you're looking for a little bit of green to decorate the table this evening, this dish should qualify.
