20+ Fantastic Vegetarian St. Patrick's Day Recipes
Want to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, but determined to stick to your vegetarian diet? Corned beef and cabbage and beef stew are certainly not the only options for a flavorful and authentic St. Patrick's Day spread. From potato soup and colcannon to Irish soda bread and stout chocolate cake, these recipes honor some of the best vegetarian foods that the Emerald Isle has to offer. Plus, we've got plenty of desserts featuring Guinness stout and Irish cream liqueur, more quick breads, and a few sides that show cabbage can taste just as delicious apart from the corned beef.
