Before you reach for your phone to order food delivery, take a look at the easy Colcannon recipe below.
Provided by Jimmy, our resident Irish staff member, it’s a potato lover’s go to meal.
It’s an easy dish to make, tastes delicious (confirmed by Jimmy), and will hopefully save you from the costly food delivery epidemic that is taking over Australia.
The dish I would like to serve up is Colcannon, a traditional Irish dish that’s very common around St. Patrick’s day.
It’s an easy dish which should take between 20-30 minutes to cook with everyday simple ingredients:
- 1kg potatoes
- 250g Curly Kale
- 100ml’s milk
- 100g butter
- Salt and pepper
All you need to do is peel the potatoes and boil them until tender.
Meanwhile, cook the kale. Drain the water once cooked and finely chop the kale.
Add in the butter and milk to the potatoes and mash for one minute, then add in the kale and continue to mash.
Once the potatoes have been mashed with no lumps remaining, add the salt and pepper and your meal is ready to eat.
TIP: You can always add in cooked meat (chopped) or tuna for some added protein. Enjoy!
