Colcannon is "an Irish and Scottish dish of cabbage and potatoes boiled and pounded".  You can find lots of varying recipes.  I just love it--- it's a comfort food but it has greens in it.  I serve it with a side of soup usually.

12 yukon potatoes (or yellow) peeled and cut in half
1/2 head of green organic cabbage, shredded
1 bunch scallions
1 bunch black kale, shredded
1/2 stick Kerrygold butter (or to taste)-- or 1/2 stick Earth Balance for vegan
1/2 cup almond milk
Salt and pepper to taste

Bring a large pot of water to a boil
Boil cabbage and kale for 2 minutes (covered)
Using a wire skimmer, skim out cabbage and kale and set aside
In same pot of boiling water, boil all the potatoes for 20 minutes, or until soft
In a large bowl, put the kerrygold butter and milk
Using wire skimmer, scoop potatoes into the bowl over the butter and milk
Mash potatoes with a masher
Fold in cabbage and kale
Add scallions
Salt and pepper it to taste
