If 16 of the best vegan St. Patrick’s Day Irish recipes and Irish eats are your thing, read on.
Looking for green unicorn poop cupcakes or shamrock-shaped key lime pie with a side of quinoa for your vegan St. Patrick’s Day feast?
Then head to another list because we’re aiming for nearly authentic Irish recipes here, for St. Patrick’s day or to enjoy year-round!
The only reason they are “nearly” authentic is because I can’t think of a single Irish recipe that is vegan (and I’m Irish), so a few tweaks have been put in place.
Out with the butter, milk, cream, and meat, in with the veggie goodness.
From breakfast, before you go to watch the St. Patrick’s parade, to a big lunch before heading out to meet friends at the pub, and finally dinner and some fun treats, I’ve got your Paddy’s day covered.
Which St.Patrick’s Day Meal?:
And for drinks, beer, Guinness, stout, and lager are the drinks of choice at pubs around Ireland on St. Patrick’s day (all colored green and your teeth end up green as well!): Having said that a good vegan Baileys Irish cream or a boozy shamrock shake certainly wouldn’t go amiss…
Is St. Patrick’s day breakfast a thing, you ask? Yes, it is. The 17th of March is a national holiday in Ireland, so with plenty of time on our hands, a full Irish breakfast is just the ticket.
Vegan sausages, fake bacon, grilled tomatoes, fried mushrooms, baked beans, boxty, toasted soda bread, or potato farls…Drool. Of course, you could always go for a healthier Irish breakfast and get some nutritious vegan porridge (oatmeal) into you.
Lunch and Dinner
Some gorgeous traditional but vegan Irish recipes that will stick to your ribs and are perfect for your St. Patrick’s Day lunch or dinner.
In Ireland, chances are high that you would also be soaking wet after being outside in the unpredictable March weather, so a hot meal is a must!
Irish dessert recipes are not that numerous, but make up for the lack of quantity with some tasty quality. A standard super easy Irish kids’ dessert is jelly and ice cream, easy enough to veganize these days!
