This dish is called
Irish Mashed Potatoes with Kale (Colcannon) Pg. 120
I chose this recipe because the ingredients are fairly inexpensive and won’t go bad terribly quickly. So in reality, I wasn’t expecting much.
Holy shit on a motherfucking stick. I was IMPRESSED. This recipe makes me want to eat my own hand when I think about it now.
You basically make mashed potatoes the regular old way. You peel and chop up some potatoes, then boil them!
That's what boiling potatoes look like!
Then, while they're boiling to death, you sautee some onions, kale, and minced fresh garlic together.
Onions with the kale! [[There's garlic in there now, too!]]
Then, when the veggies are done cooking, you let them chill out while you mash up the now-tender potatoes.
These potatoes are mashed up with some vegan butter and some salt and pepper. BUT. The deliciousness of regular old mashed potatoes isn’t enough to make them IRISH. Irish mashed potatoes must include the kale and onion delightfulness PLUS
boiled soymilk [[or whatever kind of milk you like]] with nutmeg. YUM.
So then, when you mix in your cooked kale/onion/garlic mixture with the creamy nutmegy potatoes, you get this!
AND THEN WHEN YOU GET THIS
YOU FREAKING EAT IT
AND THEN YOU EAT IT SOME MORE.
So if you can borrow Color Me Vegan from a library, a friend, or if you want to go ahead and buy it (an investment I feel is infinitely worthwhile)
MAKE THIS CRAP. IT WILL MAKE YOU SO JOYFUL.
Ease of preparation: 3/5
It doesn’t require any magnificent skills to make this recipe, but it does take a while. Probably an hour’s worth of waiting around for this dish to be done. [[Well worth it, though!]]
Definitely a comfort food! Mashed potatoes have NEVER tasted better!
Looks like a typical side dish, mashed up potatoes with greens and golden onions. Not eye-catching, but still appetizing!
