Make Green the New Black with Springtime St. Paddy’s Recipes
You needn’t be Irish to enjoy St. Patrick’s Day. Even Tokyo has held its own St. Paddy’s parade since 1992. And while the holiday gives us all a green light to feast on Emerald Isle favorites like corned beef and cabbage, soda bread and Guinness beer, why not paint your St. Patrick’s celebration a fresh shade of spring with recipes that’ll have you and your guests seeing green?
- Have a handful of veggies on hand and don’t know what to make for dinner? Let us help you out by preparing our Sesame Vegetable Stir Fry. This dish is packed with greens and packed with even more flavor thanks to our Less Sodium Soy Sauce and Sesame Oil.
- With avocado, celery, scallions and Kikkoman Wasabi Sauce, this Wasabi & Avocado Potato Salad gives you four layers of green to enjoy. We think it takes the traditional St. Patrick’s potato recipe to a whole new level.
- Who doesn’t love green beer? Probably a lot of us, actually. But you’ll have no trouble finding takers for this sassy Green Apple & Umami Martini. It’s got all the latest “mixology” essentials: gingered vodka, a squeeze of lime, green apple juice and a few splashes of Kikkoman Soy Sauce to lend it unique depth.
- No trip to a Japanese restaurant would be complete without a wee bowl of Green Tea Ice Cream to finish. So in keeping with our green theme, tack this Far-East favorite to the end of your St. Patrick’s party and watch as Irish—and all other—eyes start smiling.
