Garlicky savoy cabbage and potatoes

Scorrere verso il basso

This super simple and tasty vegetarian side dish with potatoes and savoy cabbage was inspired by a Irish dish, the colcannon. I readjusted the amount of butter and opted for the use of leek instead of onions or green onions because it is more delicate and I prefer it more.

  • 1.3 kg potatoes

  • 120 ml vegetable stock

Instructions: Garlicky savoy cabbage and potatoes

  • Cook the potatoes in salted water until they become tender. Drain and set aside (you can use the potatoes prepared the day before).
  • Heat oil and butter in a pan. Add chopped leek and garlic and cook for a couple of minutes until they become soft and translucent.
  • Clean the savoy cabbage. Remove external hard leaves and cut away the core. Cut into strips then add it to the leek. Stir, add half a cup of vegetable stock. Bring the stock to a boil, lower the heat and cover the saucepan with the lid. Cook stirring occasionally for 10 to 12 minutes until the savoy cabbage is tender.
  • Turn off the heat and add the potatoes. Add salt, pepper and milk. Mash the potatoes coarsely with a potato masher or with a fork. Mix everything and put back on the heat to make it hot again.
  • Taste, season with salt and pepper if necessary and serve.
