it has been a rough week. one of the roughest, emotionally. so i have to be honest…i’m not sure i have the wherewithal to actually make my own sausages this week, but fat-free vegan’s recipe for dublin coddle with vegan irish sausage is so brilliant, i had to share. once things get back to some sort of normal, i will definitely try my hand at it. and because i’m making a meatless monday version, i can finish mine off with guinness…now that’s a yummy touch of the luck of the irish!
the whole idea of st. patrick’s day recipes seems to be more of an american concept. growing up half irish, i don’t really remember making a big deal out of our st. paddy’s day dinners – sure, we would have corned beef from time to time, but it seemed to be more a matter of it was in the store and we liked it, rather than driven by some some tradition passed down through the generations.
here at our house, we eat a lot of veggie sausages. i do get freaked out sometimes with how processed they are and since they are usually non-organic, the soy inside isn’t the best thing to be grubbin’ on. so the thought of being able to make my own sausage is a pretty exciting concept. i love susan’s idea of using liquid smoke instead of the fake bacon (another go to faux meat) and i might add some kale to up the nutritional value. no st. paddy’s day meal (americanized or not) would be complete without a big hunk of irish soda bread and of course, a pint of guinness! so, happy st. patrick’s day, everybody!
