Colcannon mashed with milk-poached leeks

Colcannon mashed with milk-poached leeks by alchemisty

a yummy alternative to regular mashed potatoes. instead of leeks you can use cabbage, leeks, spinach, green onions, and so on.


  • 1 or so pounds of potatoes, chopped into 2-inch squares
  • 1 large or 2 small leeks, thinly sliced, white parts only
  • 3/4 cups milk
  • 1/4 t white pepper
  • 14 t salt
4 servings


Steam the potatoes in a vegetable steamer for 15-20 minutes, until soft.

Poach the leeks in the milk for 6 or so minutes.

Using a strainer, pour the milk over the potato pieces and mash. Stir in leeks, salt and pepper.

30 minutes
