While living in Chicago, I got to experience St. Patrick’s Day in full blast… we all dressed up in green sweaters, green scarves, green hats or gloves to go downtown to watch the parade. The most impressive and distinctive thing is how they dye the Chicago River green. It looks awesome!!!
Afterwards, to take a break from the cold windy weather, we went to a PUB to eat some green things – green cabbage and green beans with mashed potatoes, and to drink the ever popular green beer. Really healthy and natural, right??
So in the spirit of that St. Patrick’s Day in Chicago a few moons back, here is a collection of a few “green vegetarian recipes” that will help you get you in the St. Patrick’s spirit. And I can assure you these recipes are way better for you than any ol’ green beer.
May the luck of the Irish accompany you until next St. Patrick’s Day…
