If you'd like your meals to tip a hat to St Patty's without having to repeat the ancient dishes ad infinitum, here are some ideas. Above, a very cabbage-y hot dish, but with some south of the border excitement. The Fiesta Casserole.
Oil a roasting pan by spraying it with olive oil or cooking oil, or if you have neither spray, then coat the bottom of the pan with sprinkles of oil, or if you're out of oil, bits of butter or margarine. Add salt, pepper, and if you've got fresh thyme or rosemary, add that, too. If there's nothing fresh around, use dried thyme and rosemary, and maybe add some oregano as well. Some uncut, but peeled, garlic cloves, or if you're out of fresh, garlic powder. How about some diced onions and green or red peppers added to the mix? And if you've ever tasted smoked Spanish paprika, you know that's a great addition to a pan of roasted potatoes (just remember to omit the black pepper if you do decide to include it)! You get the picture: whatever you've got around that you feel might work. Toss the potatoes to coat well with herbs and roast until browned and cooked through. (Rotate pan and toss potatoes at least once after the first fifteen minutes.)
Using naturally gluten-free foods is one of the best ways to trim a grocery budget. Anything that doesn't require a "gluten-free" printed label attached to it is going to save you cash, and in this case, delight your taste buds as well.
