St. Patrick's Day Recipes

Green beer? We're not above raising a glass to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, but anyone who loves food knows the real St. Patrick's day party happens in the kitchen. St. Patrick's Day recipes are generally hearty and flavorful -- dishes that celebrate Ireland's storied history with <a href="/recipes/vegetables/potatoes">potatoes</a> and <a href="/recipes/lamb/">lamb</a>. Perhaps no Irish recipe is as iconic as <a href="/recipes/beef/corned-beef/cabbage/">corned beef and cabbage</a>: juicy hunks of beef tinted pink by curing salt and flavored with a savory blend of spices, then paired with a side of buttery, tender cabbage. Don't forget the Irish potato recipes: boiled new potatoes tossed with butter are delicious, or opted for mashed potatoes with scallions (called "champ") or with chopped cabbage <a href="/red-potato-colcannon/">(colcannon)</a>. Or maybe you're a fan of thick, rich Irish stew made with slow-simmered lamb and chunks of carrot, celery and onion. Whatever's on the menu, be sure to pair it with a fresh-baked slice of <a href="/recipes/bread/irish-soda/popular/">soda bread</a> - this classic Irish bread is ideal for sopping up the delicious juices at the bottom of the bowl.

Oven-Fried Fish & Chips

From EatingWell

Fish and chips are traditionally sold wrapped in paper to soak up all the grease - not a good sign. To cut the calories in half and reduce the fat, we coat the delicate fish in a crispy cornflake crust and then bake it along with sliced potatoes. Serve with: Coleslaw and malt vinegar or lemon wedges.

Saag Tofu

From EatingWell

Also known as palak paneer, saag paneer is an Indian classic composed mostly of spinach and paneer--a cow's-milk cheese that is curdled then pressed until firm. Here, we substitute tofu for the cheese and incorporate low-fat yogurt and sliced onions for a healthier version that retains its authenticity.

Irish Lamb Stew

From EatingWell

Lamb stew is Irish penicillin: a rich stew full of potatoes, leeks and carrots that'll cure whatever ails you. In traditional fashion, nothing here is browned first, just all stewed together. To keep it healthy make sure to trim the lamb of any visible fat before you cook it.

Marmalade-Glazed Orange Cheesecake

From EatingWell

Our Test Kitchen created this showpiece cheesecake to celebrate one of winter's brightest gifts: the orange. It is exceptionally rich and creamy-tasting, but lower in saturated fat than a traditional cheesecake. The secret is to replace most of the cream cheese with pureed cottage cheese. Be sure to let the food processor do its job and process the cottage cheese until it has a silky texture.

Whole-Wheat Irish Soda Bread

From EatingWell

Soda breads are hearty Irish staples - wholemeal flour with large flakes of bran and wheat germ, or white flour or a mixture leavened with baking soda and moistened with buttermilk. The acid in the buttermilk reacts with the baking soda, which is an alkali, creating bubbles of carbon dioxide which rise the bread. Soda breads have the heft of a yeast bread but are made in minutes and the dough can be shaped into scones or a round loaf, depending on the occasion. Originally it would have been baked in a bastible (pot oven) over the open fire.
