21 Green Food Ideas for St. Patrick’s Day
A gathering of delicious green food to serve on St. Patrick’s Day!
St. Patrick’s Day hasn’t always been my favorite holiday, I admit. And while I will probably never have the leprechauns visit my house and leave gold for my children or green footprints in the bathroom, it is kind of fun to add a simple nod to the holiday.
The easiest way to do that on St. Patrick’s Day is just to make everything green—including your food.
I’ve compiled a list of some fun recipes that are all very green! We have green breakfast foods, green dinner entrees, and lots and lots of green desserts. I can’t wait to try out the bell pepper and potato frittata for dinner—it’s a healthier option and I absolutely love the idea of using the peppers as shamrocks!
For breakfast, I think we will go with the green pancakes since we have green smoothies most days already.
The trouble will be choosing a dessert—too bad I can’t make them all!
