This is not a St. Patrick’s Day post. This is not a St. Patrick’s Day post. This is not a St. Patrick’s Day post. There, it’s official now.
I could never allow you to only eat green foods one day of the year just because a holiday made it socially acceptable. You need to eat your greens all day err day!
Kidding, I know that’s not always possible, but you do need to eat them. If not yesterday then today! You can do it! Pick a favorite and nosh away, then pick one thats new to you and tackle it like it’s your pillow at the end of a super long, super exhausting day.
Leave it to me to liken veggies to a pillow. I do love me some pillow!
St. Patrick’s Day is one of those holidays that most Americans celebrate for one of two reasons: 5Ks and green beer. Ok fine, some of you celebrate for 5Ks AND green beer. [I call that combo a win, by the way] Food bloggers break out the Baileys and the Guinness and dump it into everything in sight, college students bar hop until they blackout [ahhh… memories] and everyone else wears green and runs around pinching each other. As an Irish-Danish-Polish-Russian token white girl, I can easily get on board with all of the above, but this is totally not a St. Paddy’s post.
This is a post about veggies. Duh.
Earlier in the month I made a goal to make as many naturally green veggie-centric recipes as I could leading up to the 17th. I actually made a lot more than you saw, but because it’s been gorgeous outside all I can really muster is cooking, photographing, and eating said recipes, then I immediately go outside and play all day with the chickpea. You can count on some more green goodness coming your way soon. Unless it’s REALLY nice outside. Then I might run away again. You should join me.
Since I’m super visual, I skimped on the descriptions this time around. Each photo will take you straight to the recipe so get ready to get GREEN!
