St. Patrick’s Day Recipes
Irish Mulligatawny Soup
Some say that Mulligatawny soup was invented in England but most historians link the roots of this delicious mouth-watering soup to Ireland (and India, of course)
“The name Mulligatawny means ‘pepper water’, and curry is the particular ingredient that gives this incredible soup such a delicious flavor.
Traditional Mulligatawny Soup contains cream and regular flour. To make the soup creamy but gluten and dairy free I have used my gluten-free flour blend and full-fat coconut milk.
- 1 large chopped sweet onion
- 3 cloves garlic
- 2 stalks celery, chopped
- 2 carrots, diced
- 3 TBSP Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1 1/2 tablespoons gluten-free flour
- 3-4 teaspoons curry powder ( I like Madras for this recipe)
- 8 cups chicken broth
- 1 tart apple, cored and chopped (green apples are particularly nice)
- 1 cup Wild Rice blend
- 4 skinless, boneless chicken thighs – cut into cubes
- Himalayan salt to taste
- ground black pepper to taste
- ½ teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 cup coconut milk, heated (optional)
In a large Dutch oven sauté onions, garlic, celery& carrot. Add flour and curry, and cook for 5 more minutes.
Add chicken broth and rice, stir well, and bring to a boil. Simmer about 1/2 hour.
Add apple, diced chicken thighs, salt, pepper, and thyme. Simmer 15-20 minutes, or until rice is done.
When serving, add hot coconut milk. This is optional but makes this Irish Mulligatawny Soup just a wee bit richer.

For Breakfast, treat yourself to my Top O’ The Morning Green Smoothie.
I’d suggest the Irish Mulligatawny Soup for lunch (recipe above) but you might prefer some Pasta Carbonara for lunch.
Now we have choices for dinner as well. This Sesame Shrimp recipe is quick and easy to make. full of delicious, fresh asparagus & succulent shrimp, you & your guests will love.
On the other hand, Green Thai Curry will be a smash hit. It takes a bit longer to cook but you can do most of it ahead of time & then reheat it when it’s time for dinner.
Nothing is more Irish than potatoes so I had to include a potato recipe for good measure. I don’t know when you are going to have time ( or appetite) to eat the Best Potato Salad but maybe you will have it for dessert! (That’s some really good Irish humor there!)
