When you think “Irish food” potatoes usually come to mind. Traditionally, Irish Colcannon is made with mashed white potatoes and cabbage. Americans usually think of it as the perfect dish for St. Patrick’s Day – though in Ireland, it’s served more often in the fall. Go figure! This dish dates back to pre-Roman times in Ireland and was popular because ingredients were readily available, inexpensive and filling. Some recipe variations include beans, garlic or chives.
This vegan and gluten-free version of Colcannon is a hearty and comforting savory side dish. Instead of traditional cabbage, brilliant green kale and fiber-rich brussels sprouts will bring you the luck of the Irish. For a touch of decadence, top the dish with fried leeks[yumprint-recipe id=’72’]
