Meatless Monday - St. Patrick's Day Happy Irish Beer Bread & Traditional Irish Colcannon Potatoes and Cabbage

I am posting these recipes because St. Patrick's Day is coming up and I have many vegan friends who happen to enjoy some great tasting beers. I also posted a veganized traditional Irish Colcannon Potatoes and Cabbage recipe for all of you wanting to really celebrate St. Patrick's Day right. Enjoy!
St. Patrick's Day Happy Irish Beer Bread 
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 12 oz stout beer list of vegan friendly beers
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 2/3 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • dash nutmeg (optional)


Combine all ingredients and mix well. Pour into a greased loaf pan and bake for 50 minutes at 350 degrees. It couldn't be easier!


  • water for boiling
  • 5 large potatoes
  • 1 head green cabbage, chopped
  • 3 leeks, sliced
  • 1 cup soy milk
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg (optional)
  • salt and pepper to taste


Place potatoes in a large pot and add enough water to cover the potatoes. Bring to a boil and cook for at least 20 minutes, or until potatoes are tender. In a separate pot, boil the cabbage in water for 15 minutes. Drain and set aside.
In another pot or skillet, cook leeks in soy milk until tender, about 15 minutes.
When potatoes are done cooking, mash them together with leeks, soy milk, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Add cabbage and stir to combine. Add more salt and pepper to taste and enjoy!
