30+ Best Keto St. Patrick's Day Recipes

If you are wondering what to eat or how to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, you’ll find some of the most common foods served today.

What Is St. Patrick’s Day?

St. Patrick’s Day, celebrated annually on March 17th, pays tribute to the patron saint of Ireland with spectacular parades, vibrant parties, and delectable Irish cuisine. Traditionally, Irish families attend church services in the morning and engage in festivities in the afternoon during St. Patrick’s Day, which falls within the Christian season of Lent. This day allows for a temporary lifting of Lenten restrictions on eating and drinking, adding to the joy and cultural significance of the celebration.

Why Green Color?

In 1798, during the Irish Rebellion, the color green became a symbol of Ireland and St. Patrick’s Day. Before this time, blue was the color traditionally associated with Ireland, frequently seen in the royal court and on historic Irish flags.

However, as a form of defiance during the rebellion against Britain, Irish armies chose to wear green to stand out against the British’s red uniforms. They also sang “The Wearing of the Green,” further cementing the color green’s association with Irish identity and resistance. This shift marked a significant change in Ireland’s symbolism of colors, making green a lasting emblem of the nation and its most celebrated holiday.

Main Ingredients Used In Keto St. Patrick’s Day Recipes

  • Meats: Corned beef, lamb, and bacon are staples for hearty, protein-rich dishes.
  • Leafy Greens: Cabbage, kale, and spinach are used both for their nutritional value and their vibrant green color, fitting the theme of St. Patrick’s Day.
  • Low-Carb Vegetables: Cauliflower (often used as a potato substitute), zucchini, and Brussels sprouts are prominent in side dishes.
  • Dairy: Heavy cream, butter, cottage cheese, and Irish cheese add richness and flavor to recipes, from sauces to soups.
  • Herbs and Spices: Parsley, thyme, and dill, along with salt and pepper, season dishes subtly without adding carbs.
  • Almond and Coconut Flours: These are used in place of traditional flour for keto-friendly breads, crusts, and gluten-free desserts.
  • Sweeteners: Erythritol, Monk Fruit, or Allulose can be used in desserts to replace sugar.
  • Eggs are used as a binder in recipes or as a main ingredient in dishes like frittatas, omelets, and keto desserts.
