Got kale? Try it in colcannon, an Irish dish.


  • 6 large potatoes peeled, chopped, and boiled
  • 4 scallions, chopped
  • 2 ounces milk, half and half, or cream (you may need more or less, depending on the desired consistency of the finished product)
  • 8 ounces steamed or boiled kale, chopped into small pieces
  • 2 ounces butter, divided
  • 1 tablespoon chopped Italian parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Mash the potatoes.
  2. In a saucepan, combine milk, scallions, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil.
  3. When it reaches a boil, add kale and 1/2 of the butter.
  4. When kale is tender, add the potatoes. Beat until smooth and well-mixed.
  5. Serve with parsley and the remaining butter.


If you're out of kale, try it with cabbage. To change it up, add some chopped, crispy bacon before serving.
