Last week, I couldn't decide between having my St. Patrick's Day food consist of Irish dishes or just food that's green. Well, I chose the Irish recipes. Green tofu, tempeh, and seitan might scare somebody.
To celebrate St. Patty's, I made colcannon, which is a traditional Irish potatoes-and-greens dish, for the first time. Think mashed potatoes with extra ingredients such as greens—some recipes use cabbage while others use kale—and leeks. So not only is it very Irish, it's also naturally green.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!

2 leeks, sliced
