St. Patrick’s Day Vegan Recipe Roundup!

Posted by:

Believe it or not, St. Patrick’s Day is this Saturday!  Whether you’re a fan of corned beef and cabbage (vegan, of course) or you just like wearing a lot of green, you’ve probably been on the lookout for fun things to do for the holiday.  Like a lot of other holidays, St. Patty’s Day has specific foods associated with it which people make an effort to prepare even if it’s something they’d never think to eat the rest of the year.

Personally, I’m just in it for the green cabbage sales.  But if you’ve been searching for vegan St. Patrick’s Day recipes to bring the luck o’ the Irish to your table (or something like that), here are a few you can try!

Shamrocks are, of course, an iconic St. Patrick’s Day image.  If you’ve got a little time, grab yourself a shamrock-shaped cookie cutter (like the green one above, from Wilton) and whip up a batch of green frosted sugar cookies!  I adapted the recipe for Christmas, but they’re good any time of year.

I’ll admit that, even after looking up recipes, I still have no idea what “corned beef” is.  But if you do and you’re hankering for a vegan version of the classic corned beef and cabbage, la pure mama posted this one last year, complete with instructions for beef-style seitan.

If mock beef isn’t your thing, you might want to try this quinoa-stuffed cabbage from The Vegan Version instead.  I know I wanted to eat it as soon as I read the recipe!

And for a tasty snack, you can’t sneeze at Happy Herbivore’s Irish Soda Bread!  Simple, rustic bread with raisins…yes please.

If you’re in a hurry but still feel like getting into the spirit, there are always lunchtime cabbage wraps!  They’re also good for using up any extra cabbage you might have left over…

Do you have a favorite vegan St. Patrick’s Day recipe?  Link it in the comments!  I’d love to see what you’re cooking up this year.
