Delicious Recipes for St. Patrick's Day

Modern St. Patrick's Day has a bit of a...rep-beer-tation, shall we say? Since that aspect of the holiday gets plenty of press, we thought we'd explore some other traditions of the yummy variety. We fused the classic and the modern, creating traditionally inspired Irish recipes, including ones that are gluten-free and paleo-friendly. And let's not pass on some yummy desserts!

Slow Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage RecipeIrish Colcannon with Bacon RecipePaleo Colcannon Fauxtatoes with Bacon RecipeIrish Soda Bread Recipe

Contrary to modern notions, corned beef and cabbage is not actually a“traditional” Irish recipe. Corned beef was first discovered by Irish-American immigrants in New York’s Jewish delis. The inexpensive and salty meat paired with cabbage was a tasty and thrifty alternative to the more traditional Irish meals of pork and potatoes. More of a modern tradition, it's still a tasty way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day! On the other hand, colcannon is a delicious Irish dish made with foods found in a typical country garden: potatoes, cabbage or kale, and milk. Modern variation include scallions, leaks, and onions or chives (shh, we've also added bacon to our recipe!). And, let's not forget about everyone's favorite—Irish soda bread! Better known as wheaten bread in Ireland, this quick bread became a staple because it uses very few, and extremely affordable ingredients.
