6 green dishes (and 2 green drinks) to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day

March 17th 01:03pm, 2014

All of the St. Patrick’s Day festivities and have us thinking – and eating – green. If you’re not a fan of corned beef and cabbage (though this recipe may change your mind), colcannon or Irish soda bread, you can still inspire a little luck of the Irish with six dishes (and two drinks) as green as a shamrock.

1. A light, refreshing Cucumber Avocado Soup is made silky smooth with buttermilk.

2. Those rubber-banded bunches of asparagus stems are one of the first signs that spring really is on its way. Celebrate its vibrancy on this Asparagus and Green Onion Pizza.

3. Get rid of those last few bunches of kale with the snack that launched the craze: Kale Chips.

4. Corned beef isn’t the only protein option today. Go vegetarian with DIY Lentil, Chickpea & Quinoa Burger loaded with avocado and cilantro garlic cream.

5. Got a vegetable peeler and a zucchini? We’ve got a Shaved Zucchini Salad.

6. A little green food coloring goes a long way with these adorable Mint Chocolate Chip Cupcakes.

And if you had your fill of Irish ales, whiskey and Irish cream this weekend, lighten up your drinking regime with The Subcontinental (pictured) or a Lean and Green.
