Looking for some vegan foods for St. Patrick’s day? In this post, get our top picks for plant-based versions of traditional Irish dishes, emerald-green treats, and rainbow foods.
When it comes to Irish foods, different things come to mind for different people. For example, here in America, traditional Irish fare such as boxty, Irish stew, and colcannon are rarely found outside of Irish-themed restaurants and bars.
In this list, I’ve included a mix of Irish classics as well as Ireland-inspired foods such as our American contribution to St. Patrick’s day food, the Shamrock Shake!
