This Spinach and Feta Pastry Shamrock Is The Perfect Savory Snack For St. Patrick’s Day

As a vegetarian, holiday meals have always been a challenge. While you can easily just skip the turkey on Thanksgiving, some holidays aren’t so simple. The hardest one? Believe it or not, it’s St. Patrick’s Day.

I don’t have to cook something special, but as a festive person who drinks coffee on National Coffee Day and eats cookies on National Cookie Day, I like to celebrate. Unfortunately, most St. Patrick’s Day foods are made up of meat, like corned beef or cabbage rolls.

Of course I could just skip actual food and have Shamrock Shakes and cupcakes, but after a day of drinking green cocktails, a meal is a good idea.

Thankfully, there are plenty of celebratory vegetarian appetizers, from adorable Shamrock-shaped tortilla chips to what may very well be my new favorite, a spinach and feta pastry shamrock.

The recipe for this savory shamrock comes from Will Cook for Smiles, and it looks surprisingly easy. All you need is puff pastry, spinach and feta and mozzarella cheeses. Then, you’ll just follow the instructions and roll the dough and filling into shamrock shapes.

If just one shamrock-shaped appetizer isn’t going to cut it for your St. Patty’s Day celebration, check out these shamrock pretzel pops. They can serve as an appetizer or snack, and they’re so simple to make, with just four ingredients: two types of pretzels and two types of candy.

You’ll get the combination of the salty pretzel, chocolate and caramel in each bite. Just follow the recipe at Hip2Save. They take less than 20 minutes to make.
