🍀 March makes me think of all things Irish. It’s only natural, given my Irish heritage and my love of cooking, that I should be making some food from the motherland! I did a wee bit of research on the cuisine of Ireland to discover what we might be able to serve on St. Patrick’s Day.

You already know about corned beef and cabbage, but have you heard of champ? Me neither. Basically, it’s mashed potatoes with boiled milk and green onions. Little did I know when I was creating my AIP version of mashed potatoes that I was really making champ. Yes, my friends, the Irish blood runs strong in me.
For a lighter meal, you could try this Irish Carrot Soup. I adapted the recipe from an Irish cookbook my mom had when we were growing up.
And then there’s this… Toasty Rutabaga Mash. Rutabagas seem kind of old-fashioned, and don’t get a lot of press. But for optimum health, we should be eating the biggest variety of veggies we can! Rutabagas, similar to turnips, are often part of Irish cooking, and can be a great option if you have trouble sourcing white sweet potatoes. I used some caramelized onions and fresh parsley to elevate this humble vegetable, and a touch of coconut milk for a bit of creaminess. It pairs really well with beef. (You will need a potato masher for this recipe.)
To your health! 🍀😊🍀
