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 vegan St. Patrick’s Day recipes, we think you’ll really enjoy this round-up. It’s a great mix of classic Irish-inspired recipes and fun but festive new ideas.
