20 Green & Vegan Recipes for St. Patrick’s Day

Are you ready for a full day of green vegan food? I’ve got you covered with everything you need from breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, desserts, and drinks! St. Patrick’s Day, here we come!

Green & Vegan St. Patrick's Day Recipes

If you’re celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, green food is the way to go.

Over the last few months, I’ve made quite a few green dishes, so this post compiles all the delicious green recipes that you can find on Elephantastic Vegan.

Avocados, spinach, and matcha are the main ingredients that you’ll find in these recipes that are responsible for the natural green color. Avocados are a great source of healthy fats and Vitamin B, spinach is great to give your body an iron boost and matcha is high in antioxidants. So feel free to indulge in these delicious green vegan treats – not only on St. Patrick’s Day!

I’ve grouped the recipes into the following categories:
