If you search for St. Patrick’s Day recipes, you will find tons of fake green cookies and cakes that get their green color from food coloring dyes.
While I’m not anti-dye, I do believe in cooking naturally when possible. There are so many options from nature which will make your food a bright green color, while also packing the food with flavor and nutrition.
I’ve collected 10 easy recipes that cover everything from soup to vegetables to snacks. More than just St. Patrick’s Day recipes, give these green foods a try and then serve them all year long.
