What to Cook (Mar 16-20): Irish Dinners
We’re celebrating the Emerald Isle all week with these Healthy Irish Dinners. From soups to seafood, a gluten-free Shepherd’s Pie, and yes, even a St. Patrick’s Day classic, Corned Beef and Cabbage.
St. Patrick’s Day is a big deal at our house. With Irish heritage on virtually every branch of the family tree, O’Hara on my grandmother’s side, we love to celebrate those “green” roots.
Ireland is a land of beauty and simplicity. A country filled with people who love their heritage, families, communities.
Now, more than ever, we need those bonds to navigate this new world we find ourselves in. With worldwide cancellations of St. Patrick’s Day festivities, I think it’s important to create opportunities to celebrate and make memories with those we love.
Robust and hearty comfort foods dominate the Irish culinary palate. Yet to me, the food is also fresh and incredibly delicious.
This week, I’m focusing on takes of familiar Irish foods, made healthier and easy to make at home.
Variations on This Week’s Healthy Irish Dinners Menu
On Tuesday, St. Patrick’s Day, I’ve added an Instant Pot Corned Beef and Cabbage. But if you don’t have an Instant Pot, or are thinking about something else… here are a few more ideas:
- Easy One Pot Corned Beef and Cabbage
- Irish Lamb Stew
- Skillet Dublin Coddle
- Irish Cottage Pie
- Quick Mushroom Barley Soup
Have a great week everyone!
