Easy Irish Recipes
Ever since discovering I’m 13% Irish, for St. Patricks Day we go all out!. Corned Beef N’ Cabbage, Colcannon, Cream O’Cabbage and even Irish lime cabbage gelatin with roasted walnuts, ha! Of everything Irish we’ve tried at our table, these two have been the most well received. In fact, they’re keepers. Got them from an Irish born neighbor in Bend, OR. (LUV U Shelagh.) Trot it out for St. Patty’s day or anyday. They’re magically delicious!
Just take your favorite mashed potato recipe, throw in some micro-sliced kale, cabbage and green onions to boil with the potatoes and “spuds o blarney” you’ve got dinner! This is an inexpensive dish that’s great for feeding a lot of people …in a hurry …on the cheap. What’s more, according to the “Food Lover’s Guide” Colcannon is actually more traditional an Irish meal than Corned beef and cabbage, hey.
Nellie’s Cream O’ Cabbage
1 large head of cabbage
1 can coconut milk
1 teaspoon salt
Pepper to taste
Grated Almond Cheddar Cheese
Salt & black pepper
Shred cabbage, steam it in a 4 qt cooking pot with 1 can coconut milk on medium heat until tender – about 18-20 minutes. Stir every few minutes to prevent singeing. Season with a little salt and pepper and cover with lid. When cabbage is cooked all the way through and ready to eat, place in an oven safe serving dish, cover with grated cheese, top with breadcrumbs and brown under broiler until breadcrumbs are golden and cheese melts.
