This is a list of our favorite vegan Saint Patrick’s Day recipes from the blog. We’ve included ideas for everything from hearty dinners and festive desserts to THE funnest party food!
Saint Patrick’s Day is a big deal in our house. There’s music, usually a bit of dancing, and always a kickass meal we cook together whilst enjoying a drink or four. Oh, and T wears a kilt.
It may not be the all-day parties of my whiskey-soaked youth, but by some standards, I’d say we go pretty all-out!
Saint Patrick’s Day is also a big deal in Philly as well as within our own Irish-American families, so both T and I grew up with many traditional foods with which we associate the holiday. Since going vegan, we’ve had a lot of fun veganizing as many of these foods as possible!
If you’re like us and love Saint Patrick’s Day food, we think you’ll really enjoy this round-up. It’s a great mix of classic dishes and fun but festive new ideas.
Now, grab yourself a drink, turn up the rebel music, and get your ass in the kitchen!
Vegan Saint Patrick’s Day Party Food
If you’re hosting (or headed to) a party on Saint Patrick’s Day, these crowd-friendly recipes are our favorite way to soak up all that whiskey and beer!
1. Vegan Irish Cheddar + Whiskey Fondue
Okay, so maybe you’re adding to the whiskey with this one, but what better excuse than Saint Patrick’s Day?! This vegan fondue recipe has a creamy cashew + white bean base with a gooey stretchy texture and the most wonderful tangy zip!
2. Vegan Cottage Pie Cupcakes
This savory Vegan Cottage Pie Cupcake is a veganized – and slightly fancified – version of a classic comfort food and an old favorite. Bonus points: They can be made ahead of time and even frozen!
Vegan Saint Patrick’s Day Dinner Ideas
We love some good veganized “pub grub” for Saint Patrrick’s Day dinner. From corned beef and cabbage to bangers and mash, we quickly learned there’s no traditional recipe we can’t make vegan!
1. Slow-Cooker Corned Beef Seitan
This vegan corned beef is as meaty and flavorful as any non-vegan version we’ve ever had but made from seitan then cooked in the slow-cooker! The gorgeous color comes from beet puree *swoon*. This is without a doubt our favorite seitan recipe! A lot of research went into this bad boy to get it juuuust the way we wanted it.
2. The PERFECT Roasted Potatoes
Make these easy roasted potatoes to serve alongside the corned beef seitan or for dipping in the aforementioned fondue! They require only six simple ingredients and come out perfectly crispy + flavorful every. single. time.
3. Seitan Bangers + Mash
This is our go-to recipe for THE most meaty, mouth-watering, and memorable seitan sausages of all time! Serve them atop a mountain of mashed potatoes and peas, then smother them in gravy.
4. Vegan Pot Pie Casserole
This vegan pot pie casserole is a quick, easy, and deliciously vegan version of T’s favorite chicken pie. Made with tremendously simple and easily found ingredients, the hardest part is waiting for it to finish cooking! Bonus points: This one is also freezer-friendly, not to mention, kid-approved!
5. Creamy Vegan Chicken(less) Stew
This stew makes for the perfect cozy Saint Patrick’s Day dinner. It’s easy to make with common ingredients, methods, and hidden veggies too!
Vegan Saint Patrick’s Day Dessert Ideas
Sweet treats are a GREAT way to celebrate any holiday. Not to mention, they’re the perfect strategy to entice everyone in your office/ family/school to try (and subsequently become less afraid of) vegan food. Any of these recipes should do the trick!
1. Vegan Irish Potato Candy
Irish Potatoes are a Philadelphia Saint Patrick’s Day tradition. They’re basically little balls of cream cheese, butter, shredded coconut, and powdered sugar rolled in cinnamon to look like little taters. Our veganized Irish Potatoes are easy to make and only need about an hour of chill time before they’re ready to eat!
2. Grown-Up Vegan Peppermint Patties
Saint Patrick’s Day is the PERFECT excuse to infuse ALL the homemade candies with dairy-free Baileys. These “grown-up” peppermint patties do NOT disappoint!
3. Boozy Vegan Shamrock Shake
Your favorite childhood St Patrick’s Day treat is now vegan and chock-full of booze thanks to this Boozy Vegan Shamrock Shake recipe! It’s easy to make with a thick indulgent texture that will leave you SHOCKED there’s no dairy in it.
