One of my favorite Irish dishes – Colcannon

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 a head of green cabbage, finely chopped
  • 2 pounds, or so, of organic russet potatoes (peel and cut into small pieces)
  • 1 decent sized organic leek, chop this up
  • 1/2 cup of organic half/half (substitutions: 1/4 cup organic cream or 1/2 almond milk could do)
  • sea salt and ground black pepper
  • organic butter (the real deal, just cream) or substitute veggie butter (read the ingredients – it might be processed!)

Directions:

In a large pot, put peeled and cut spuds in and cover with water. On top of pot place colander with your chopped cabbage. On medium-high heat boil the potatoes/steam cabbage until potatoes are tender (15-20 minutes or so). Turn off heat and drain water from potatoes. In a saute pan heat leeks with half/half over low-medium heat until tender. Mix cabbage, leeks, and spuds together. Season with a dash of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Serve with a tablespoon of butter.

 

ENJOY!!!
