St. Patrick’s Day is next week. I always love being festive for holidays but try not to splurge too much or spend too much energy. These healthy St. Patrick’s Day recipes are all naturally green and naturally delicious!
There are so many green fruits and vegetables that you can really get inventive or use a standby recipe to stay on theme without much effort.
I’ve included all of my seasonal recipes that contain naturally green produce, including broccoli, kiwis, kale, spinach, fresh herbs, avocados, and more!
Healthy St. Patrick’s Day Recipes
Add some spice to your St. Patrick’s Day celebration with this Irish-themed charcuterie platter. A meat and cheese platter full of traditional foods to celebrate the holiday (without all the work)!
I actually have a couple takes on this pea pesto. The first is this pea pesto pasta sauce that’s DELICIOUS and a fun, festive way to have some green for dinner atop your pasta of choice!
The second is this pea pesto green dip that’s wonderfully light and bright (and a fabulous switch up from traditionally heavier winter vegetables).
And not a sauce, but this vegan pea soup is vibrant green, so healthy, delicious, and easily made ahead of time! Can be served as a main dish or a starter.
Both are made with fresh or frozen peas are are two of the best healthy St. Patrick’s Day recipes in my opinion!
A fun mocktail for everyone, this elegantly green drink is a fun and easy drink option for kids and adults alike!
These zucchini quesadillas aren’t totally in season, but the idea of using a green, spinach tortilla is a fabulous way to get some green into any meal or dish!
If you love broccoli (or just have a fair bit on your hands), you’ll also want to try this broccoli potato soup (vegan), this roasted grape and broccoli salad, our go to prosciutto broccoli floret appetizer, this cashew, broccoli pasta (vegan) and our healthy sesame chicken with broccoli.
This may be my favorite recipe of all time. The flavors blend so wonderful. It’s good warm or cold. And we’ve even experimented with mixing the leftovers into a egg soufflé type dish. It is delicious!!
Hands down my favorite recipe of mine. This is the perfect easy weeknight meal! Add a protein of choice or just enjoy as is – the perfect healthy green recipe for next week and all year!
This delicious cold asparagus appetizer is a winning recipe to keep on hand year round. The white bean spread, fresh baguette slices, and fresh rosemary merry beautifully in this asparagus crostini for the perfect flavor combination!
Step up your breakfast with this tasty egg toast topped with sauteed kale and mashed avocado. Scramble, poach, or fry your egg and top with a variety of toppings depending on your mood from day to day!
More yummy avocado recipes include this avocado and bean salad (vegan), spicy avocado toast (seriously packed with flavor), and these avocado crackers!
The perfect side dish no matter your St. Patrick’s Day entree, this sauteed swiss chard is packed with nutrients and flavor!
A long time family favorite and recently recreated as a Mardi Gras side dish, roasted squash is a great, healthy dish for St. Patrick’s day. Use just green squash or do a combination of yellow and green!
