3 Vegan St. Patrick’s Day Recipes You Will Love
Holiday food has always been an enjoyment for us. Everything from holiday cookies in December to Cinco de Mayo recipes in May we love to incorporate the seasonal themes in our cooking. So naturally, when March rolls in we start thinking Reubens, Bangers and Mash, Irish soda bread, and Cabbage. It only made sense to create a St. Patrick’s Day inspired Meatless Monday post for you all to enjoy. From breakfast to dinner and everything in between we have you covered with 3 Vegan St. Patrick’s Day Recipes You Will Love all in one post.
