Gluten Free Recipes for St. Patrick’s Day

 

Lots going on here with a double header holiday week that includes both St. Patrick’s Day and Purim.  All of the festivities are keeping me quite busy. Luckily, I have not attempted to make green Hamantaschen, though if things keep progressing at this rate I just might.

Here are some of my favorite gluten free St. Patrick’s Day recipes. They run the gamut from Peppermint Patties to Irish Soda Bread to a green shake –a little bit of something for everyone.


It is a gorgeous day here, with bright sunshine and a high in the 70’s.  We all have on shorts and t-shirts and have been mostly outside since the boys came home from school.The highlight of my day thus far?  A canvasser from COPIRG stopped by to discuss how to “STOP SUBSIDIZING OBESITY.” Yup, that is the name of the Colorado Public Interest Group’s latest campaign, and yes, it is an “all caps” campaign which I do not mind since this is such a serious issue.

What issue is near and dear to your heart right now?

  1. I was wondering if anyone has tried making the soda bread with an egg substitute? The soda bread sounds delicious but I can’t have eggs :-/

    • I have subbed in mayo in a lot of cookie and other recipes. Worth a shot. Used it making ginger snaps last week and no one knew. They were great . Good luck .

  2. I am always looking for more ways to get greens into our breakfasts. These green eggs are brilliant! My 9yo daughter and I both love them! I have used both spinach and kale. Purple kale comes out the prettiest. Also, SUPER easy. they take about 5 minutes from opening the fridge to rinsing out the blender.

  3. Thank you for speaking out for such a brave and important cause, elana. the obesity epidemic in our nation troubles me so much. i believe the poor and uneducated are those who suffer much because the cheapest foods are the most deadly (unhealthy) and they are stuck in a perpetual cycle it seems. it breaks my heart, to be honest. i have never been obese, but i have had times when i struggled through financial hardships and had to live on processed foods. to this day, i still remember those times as depressing to say the least. i pray that i will always live in gratitude for the blessing of being able to eat fresh fruits, veggies and whole, non-processed foods. every american has a right to the same. :)
