Fun recipes to try at home!

Colcannon is a family favourite & takes about 45 minutes to cook; this recipe serves 4 generous portions.  It can rescue some vegetables that may be languishing in the bottom of your fridge & past their best! 

Working out at a price of €1.37 per portion, it's a wallet-friendly option you'll warm to as the winter nights close in!  A Halloween tradition can also see colcannon served with a ‘prophetic’ ring (an engagement), thimble (hard times) & small coin (wealth) concealed inside the dish for fun!

What you need:

  • 1kg potatoes, peeled and diced – roosters work well for this recipe!
  • 250g savoy cabbage, finely sliced*
  • 1 bunch of spring onions, finely sliced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 75ml milk
  • A generous pinch of salt & pepper
  • For some extra kick:  Tablespoon (or so!) of wholegrain mustard
  • * If you have kale in your fridge, you can also use it instead of cabbage; remove any big stalks and slice it up finely

What to do:

  1. Add the peeled and diced potato to a pot of cold water, cover, place over a high heat and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the potato is tender when pierced with a fork.
  2. Place the cabbage/kale into the steamer and steam cook until it is tender.
  3. When the potatoes are cooked, remove from the heat, drain into a colander, then add back into the pot with the butter and milk.
  4. Mash the potatoes until smooth and creamy. You may want to add a little more or less milk and butter, we’ll leave that up to your personal taste!
  5. Add in the spring onion, cabbage/kale, salt and pepper and stir through with a spoon until evenly combined. Add in you mustard now too if you’re looking for a little extra kick!
  6. Serve the colcannon right away!
