St. Patrick’s Day Recipe Roundup

st-patricks-day-food-and-drink-recipes

Here’s to my first recipe roundup! After getting together with fellow food bloggers, I am very excited to share these recipes with you all. The theme of this post is St. Patrick’s Day, which is coming up on March 17th. Hopefully, these recipes provide ideas and inspire some holiday cooking and baking!

I have not tested every recipe I’m sharing but I left a short intro before each. Note that not all of these recipes are dairy-free and egg-free, but I provided some tips to make them allergy-friendly!

Spinach Hummus
Hummus is a flavorful and healthy dip great to serve at any party, munch on as a snack, or enjoy as an appetizer. The addition of spinach adds vitamins and nutrients, and of course a green color!

Shepherd’s Pie
I’m not sure if I’ve ever had Shepherd’s Pie before and just looking at these potatoes I know I’ve been missing out. This recipe can easily be altered to be dairy-free by substituting the half & half and cheddar cheese with your allergy-friendly brands! Also, this recipe could be made vegetarian by omitting the meat and using vegetable broth instead of beef. A unique feature of this recipe is the use of scallion oil to turn the potatoes green!

Irish Beef Stew (Instant Pot)
I’ve been seeing Instant Pot recipes everywhere lately, and I think it’s about time for me to purchase my own! This recipe’s total time is just under one hour–and that’s just mindblowing to me. The best part is it’s completely free of dairy and eggs and still gets that thick and creamy consistency from mixing in cornstarch.

Chocolate Stout Hamantaschen
This recipe attempts to bring two upcoming holidays–Purim and St. Patrick’s Day together. Guinness is incorporated into a standard chocolate ganache filling to give this Jewish cookie some Irish flair. The Hamantaschen dough part of this recipe can easily be made dairy-free and egg-free by simply using dairy-free butter and a flax egg. The Stout Ganache recipe can also easily be made dairy-free by using allergy-friendly dark chocolate, dairy-free butter, and replacing the heavy whipping cream with coconut milk or soy cream.

Luck of the Irish Cupcakes
I love cupcakes–espeically festive cupcakes! If you’re hosting or heading to a party, make sure you bring these treats along. This recipe is already dairy-free friendly, so the only substitution is an easy flax egg replacement.

Irish Cream Bundt Cake
There’s a special place in my heart for bundt cakes… My very first job was working in the front of Nothing Bundt Cakes (fun fact!) so when I saw this recipe I was very excited. My non-dairy people, don’t let the title of this recipe scare you! There are dairy-free Irish cream recipes out there for you to use as a substitute–and of course non-dairy products plus flax egg replacements!

Cream of Spinach Soup
Before developing my lactose intolerance, I loved a thick and cream soup. I haven’t attempted to make a creamy soup in years, but this recipe has me wanting to try! The substitutions are simple enough–just find your favorite dairy-free products of butter, milk, and cream.

Irish Soda Bread
Would yall believe me if I told you this recipe only contains FOUR ingredients? Yep, that’s right! One of them is buttermilk, but the author provided a helpful dairy free version. How awesome! Also included are gluten free, egg free, soy, and nut free versions. I will be trying out this simple and delicious bread soon!16999251_10212405378594572_5591160987196373156_n.jpg

Shamrock Smoothies
My husband has one smoothie per day for either breakfast or lunch. In an attempt to branch out and try some new ingredients, this recipe came at a perfect time! Of course, if you don’t consume dairy–replace the milk with soy or almond milk, and replace the yogurt with a dairy-free brand. When we make this, I know my husband will add chia seeds or flax seeds as well!

Irish Stew
My mouth is watering just looking at this photo. I typically don’t make stews, but every time I see a recipe I’m so inspired to get in the kitchen and whip one together. It must be something about how filling and comforting they look. I know my husband would be happy to try this recipe out too!

Caramelized Brussel Sprouts
OKAY, I love brussel sprouts!!! Not many people do so I rarely get a chance to enjoy them, but I definitely savor the flavor whenever I can. I love them roasted so that’s my go-to method, but this recipe uses a saute pan so they can caramelize with the other ingredients. I appreciate the use of an orange vinegarette as a topping so these can be made year-round, not just around the holidays.

Paleo Shepherd’s Pie
This is a must-try! I love that it’s Paleo so it’s automatically gluten, grain, and dairy free! It’s also low carb and free of eggs. When I shared this recipe with my husband he was initially unsure because of the word “Paleo” but once I explained what that meant, he was interested in trying it out!16938867_10158428384925294_2768571719877077400_n

Mint Oreo Truffles
Did yall know Oreo’s are dairy and egg free?!? It took me a few years to figure this out since I don’t buy store-bought cookies often, but it’s nice to know. Now this recipe looks right up my alley, I could eat all of these in one sitting. These truffles do contain cream cheese, but I love and absolutely recommend Tofutti Dairy Free Cream Cheese as a replacement.16806922_10103344676214077_4812008428372749480_n.jpg

Avocado Deviled Eggs
Before my egg sensitivity really started to kick into high gear, I would enjoy deviled eggs regularly when my mom made them and I loved them! I couldn’t even imagine having eggs straight-up now in my life. With a little research, I found out that you can make “vegan eggs” either using tofu or by combining a dairy-free milk with agar powder and salt. That’s interesting… Anyway, I enjoy avocados on anything so I would be interested in trying this recipe with vegan eggs!

Cabbage, Bacon, and Potatoes
This recipe title alone had me sold. I need to try this ASAP! This would make for a great main course or as a fun side to bring to a party. As the name suggests, there’s no dairy or eggs–so that’s even better!

Shamrock Lasagna with Ricotta and Spinach
Lasagna is a meal I have not even thought to recreate without using dairy or eggs because they both seem so important to the recipe… But after thinking about it, the three kinds of cheeses used all have allergy-friendly replacements either homemade or store-bought plus the egg is only included as a binder. This means that you could use a flax egg or omit completely if using a dish and know that your lasagna may be a bit messier than usual.

I hope you enjoyed going through these yumilicious recipes! I had so much fun collaborating with other food bloggers. In the future, I would love to collaborate with other allergy-friendly food bloggers for a recipe roundup. But for now, I do enjoy the creativity that goes into making traditional recipes dairy and egg free! Let me know how you liked the post and which recipe you’ll be trying out for St. Patty’s Day.
