DIRECTIONS

  • Cook the potatoes and parsnips in water until tender.
  • While these are cooking, chop leeks (greens as well as whites) and simmer in the milk until soft.
  • Next, cook the kale or cabbage and have warm and well chopped.
  • Drain the potatoes, season with mace, garlic, salt and pepper, and beat well.
  • Add the cooked leeks and milk (be careful not to break down the leeks too much).
  • Finally, blend in the kale or cabbage and butter.
  • The texture should be that of a smooth-buttery potato with well distributed pieces of leek and kale.
  • Garnish with parsley.
  • Colcannon is also made by cooking layered vegetables, starting with potatoes, in a slow-cooker during the day.
  • Drain vegetables, blend with milk and margarine as above and garnish with parsley.
