Colcannon


You'll need

10 Desiree potatoes (about 1.6kg), unpeeled 500 gm rock salt 1 small bunch young cavolo nero, stalks removed, leaves coarsely chopped 3 small spring onions, thinly sliced 200 ml pouring cream, warmed 50 gm softened butter ½ cup (firmly packed) flat-leaf parsley, coarsely chopped For drizzling: extra-virgin olive oil To serve: crusty bread

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Place potatoes on a tray lined with rock salt and bake until tender (45 minutes-1 hour). Working quickly while potatoes are hot, and holding them in a tea towel, scoop flesh from skin and pass through a mouli or potato ricer into a saucepan (see note). Add cavolo nero, spring onion, cream and butter and stir over low heat to warm through. Add parsley, season to taste, dress with olive oil and serve hot with crusty bread.
Note Moulis and potato ricers are available from kitchenware shops. Alternatively, you can mash the potato with a hand masher.

This recipe is from the August 2010 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.
