Colcannon Style Mash Potatoes

  , , , , , ,

April 4, 2018

This is our take on Colcannon, a traditional Irish dish of mashed potatoes with kale or cabbage.
We usually serve this with roast pork or pork and cider.

  • Prep: 10 mins
  • Cook: 4 hrs
  • Yields: Serves 4


5 Potatoes, chopped

Handful of chopped Cabbage, Kale or Spinach

2 small Spring onions/Scallions, finely sliced

1 tblspn Butter

100ml Cream


1Place potatoes in slow cooker bowl, cover potatoes with water

2Cook on HIGH (Woolworths 1.5L sc) for 4hrs

3Mash potatoes to desired consistency

4Stir butter and cream into mash

5Season with salt and pepper if required

6Add spring onions, cabbage/kale/spinach and stir to combine


1Cooking time varies depending on potatoes used. Softer ones are quicker, harder/firmer ones tend to take longer.

2Omit the Spring Onions/Scallions for Low FODMAP

We like the crunch so generally use raw greens but you can blanch/boil the kale/cabbage until it softens if you prefer

So good and saved me dirtying another dish for greens. Added a little chicken stock powder to the water. I didn’t use spring onion but added a little onion powder.
