Even though I was deprived of corned beef and cabbage on St. Patrick’s Day, I was not about to be deprived of my second favorite St. Paddy’s day recipe – Corned Beef & Cabbage Bean Soup.
This gluten free recipe came about as a way of using up leftovers in a manner that was similar but not the same as the previous day’s meal. It was such a hit I started planning for the next day’s meal ahead of time; I would put some dried beans on to soak while the corned beef and cabbage was simmering away.
There will be no corned beef and cabbage for my family this year on St. Patrick’s Day. We have been invited to spend the day in the country with some wonderful friends for a picnic/barbecue.
Being as my maiden name is O’Neal I needed to come up with some way to commemorate the day unless I wanted a bunch of Irish relatives coming after me with pitchforks or rolling over in their graves. So I decided to make some gluten free pistachio cupcakes to share with our friends.
