Colcannon is a traditional Irish recipe – I have adapted this recipe to include both cabbage and kale and do not tend to blend it or have it cut finely.

  • 600g potatoes
  • 100g cabbage
  • 4tsp olive oil
  • 150g kale
  • chopped bunch of scallion
  • 25 g sunflower butter
  • 4tsb almond milk
  • Season


  1. Cook the potatoes for about 20 minutes until soft and tender. Drain.
  2. Add the butter to the drained potatoes and mash to a fine pulp. Next add the milk and combine until light and fluffy. Season to taste and set to one side.
  3. I prefer seasoning at this point rather than later.
  4. In a large frying pan, sauté the cabbage in olive oil for a couple of minutes before adding the kale and spring onions. Cook for about 3 further minutes until the greens turn faintly golden at the edges.
  5. Gently combine the potatoes into the greens.
