Vegan Shepherds Pie

1. Vegan Shepherd’s Pie

Shepherd’s Pie is excellent comfort food, and this hearty vegan version featuring mushrooms and tofu is just as filling as its meaty cousin. If you’re not a fan of tofu, you can replace the soy with white beans or black eyed peas.

2. Vegan Colcannon

Colcannon normally features cabbage, but this recipe from Vegan Yum Yum calls for kale instead. If you want something a little bit more traditional, you can just swap the cabbage back in. Just use 4 cups of cabbage in place of the kale, and cook it the same. Either way, you’re getting a generous serving of healthy cruciferous vegetables!

3. Vegan Irish Stew

Irish stew typically calls for beef or lamb, but this savvy vegan version uses seitan or chickpeas (your choice!) to replace the meat. This looks like the perfect cozy meal for a chilly St. Patrick’s Day!

4. Dublin Coddle with Vegan Irish Sausage

Fat Free Vegan’s recipe for Dublin Coddle includes instructions for making your own vegan Irish sausage from scratch! If you’re not feeling quite that ambitious, you can use pre-made vegan sausages, like Tofurkey or Field Roast.

5. Whole Wheat Vegan Soda Bread

Soda bread is an Irish staple, but it often uses dairy ingredients. This simple vegan recipe from Happy Herbivore is sure to please, whether you sweeten it up with a bit of sugar and raisins or omit those ingredients to stay more traditional.

Do you guys have any vegan eats on your St. Patrick’s Day menu? I’d love to hear what’s cooking in the comments!

Gardener's Pie is a great name; much more appealing than Vegan Shepherd's Pie. Let's make it happen.

It's good to share recipes for those who want to live like that, because usually they don't know what and how to eat as vegan and get ill.
