This is a popular Irish dish of Mash Potato mixed with Cabbage or Kale and forms a nutritional side dish to steak or fish or even Irish Stew. For best results peel the potatoes and cut into big chunks. Wash and soak in cold water for as long as time will allow. When cooking change this water and boil in fresh water.

Ingredients
Floury Potato – 500 gms
Savoy Cabbage or Kale – 250 gms –  chopped finely
Butter – 50 gms
Cream (optional)
Salt and Pepper to taste

Method
Add the potoes in fresh cold water and bring to a boil. Boil till done. Blanch the Kale or Cabbage in salted boiling water and drain. Drain the potatoes and mash. Add the cabbage, butter, cream (if using) and seasoning and mix well. Keep warm and serve when required.
