I didn't have time to make soda bread yesterday, and I'm not a big fan of boiled cabbage and potatoes, which is the only other Irish-ish recipe I know. So I went with green food instead: a huge mound of fresh pesto over a bed of white rice, and a green smoothie. I'm eating a lot of green smoothies these days, and never expected blended spinach to taste so good.
The smoothies consist of 3-4 cups of spinach, 1 apple, 1 banana, a few frozen peach slices and frozen strawberries, a scoop of peanut flour, a spoonful of fresh minced ginger, a dollop of soy yogurt, and almond milk. Sometimes I toss in a couple handfuls of oats for good measure. Mason jars make these a good portable breakfast to take to work and drink at my desk, too.
