St. Patty's Day

So I am attending a St. Patty’s themed baby shower this coming weekend with a group of SAD (some vegetarian) eaters. I have been asked to bring a snack or appetizer. Does anyone have good ideas for easy (I will be travelling) raw green appies that everyone will enjoy?

    How about guacamole? It’s not exactly Irish food, but it’s green. The cucumber treats recipe that was posted here recently looks yummy and fresh, too… cukes with a nut pate and sprouts. Both of those ideas would probably require an ice chest for travelling, I guess.

    I know! You could pre-slice up a bunch of green bell peppers, green onions, green beans, pea pods, etc… then later arrange all the green veggies with the guac in the middle. In a green bowl. On a green platter. Hehehe…

    If you weren’t travelling, I’d suggest green smoothies! St Patties may be the one day of the year SAD eaters would actually try them =P

    How about making a raw key lime pie? Or, make a raw cookie recipe and use just enough spirulina to give it a green color without adding a “noticable” spirulina flavor. If I have any more ideas, I will let you know!

  • I just finished eating some julienned zucchini tossed with basil-cashew pesto that turned out nicely. I never post recipes because I don’t measure(!), but here’s what goes in it:

    1 zucchini, thinly julienned

    pesto: 2 cloves garlic handful of cashews handful basil leaves juice from 1/2 lemon big pinch sea salt olive oil crushed red pepper (if you want it spicy)

    ^blend it and mix w. zucchini, I bet it turns out green:D

  • Thanks everyone!! I just found out that there will be 60-100 people at the St. Patty’s party!! 60 women at the baby shower and 100 at the after party (when men get to come). Crazy! I will definitely do something easy. Everything you guys posted looks great. Keep them coming!

  • Since there will be so many people I decided that I had to keep it a little more simple so I am not in the kitchen forever with prep work. So here is what I came up with: (thanks to you guys!)

    Benny’s basil-cashew pesto as a dip with jenergy’s green veggie tray idea. I got broccoli florets, green beans, sugar snap peas, celery, & zucchini. I might also cut avocado into cubes and serve with green toothpicks (instead of cheese cubes). I don’t have a green tray but I do have a “pot of gold” chip/dip type platter with the bowl in the middle that will be perfect!
