Vegan Colcannon Kale MealVEGAN COLCANNON


Colcannon is a potato-based side dish commonly served in Irish households year-round. It’s like mashed potatoes but with kale or cabbage (in our case both). I served my vegan colcannon with a mushroom steak and celebrated the week of St Patrick’s Day making lots of vegan recipes for you guys!

This 20-mins vegan Irish mashed potatoes recipe is great to enjoy when you need to use up some sad-looking greens in the fridge or you want a healthier spin on mashed potatoes. This is a simple way to mix your serving of veggies! It uses 7 ingredients & tastes like potato clouds. So yummy!

Recipe type: Side
Cuisine: Vegan
Serves: 4 servings
  1. Bring a medium-sized pot of water to a boil.
  2. Next, add chopped cabbage and kale into boiling water and blanch for 1-2 mins, or until bright green in colour. Remove greens with a slotted spoon, and place immediately into an ice water bath.
  3. Next, add your peeled and cubed potatoes and 1½ tsp salt to the same pot of water you cooked the greens in, and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer the potatoes for roughly 15-20 mins, or until tender. When it's fork tender, drain potatoes and add them back into the pot.
  4. Add vegan butter or margarine, and allow it to melt. Using a potato masher, mash the potatoes until smooth and butter is combined.
  5. Gradually, add warmed soy milk, stirring. Season with salt & pepper to taste.
  6. Add your cabbage and/or kale and stir again to combine.
  7. Serve garnished with additional green onions and/or parsley.
