Ryan's Colcannon

I think I have mentioned in the past that David's stepdad is allergic to many things such as apples, potatoes, tomatoes and chocolate, just to name a few.  Because of his allergies and because he loves to cook and loves good food, he has had to be very creative in the kitchen. The family has definitely reaped the benefits of his creativity. 

Colcannon is one of the recipes that he has successfully adapted.   He shared that this recipe is sort of a combination between colcannon which is Irish or rumbledethumps which is Scottish and clapshot which is also known as "neeps and tatties".  Whatever.... It's delicious!

When I decided to make this recipe to serve alongside the Guinness Pie, I adapted it even further to use what I had available.   That is the beauty of this recipe.  It can definitely be adapted and changed up to suit your tastes and what you have onhand.  This time, I didn't have turnips so I used potatoes and parsnips instead.  I boiled the veggies with garlic cloves, and, also, seasoned the mixture with onion powder and garlic powder to further enhance the flavor.  It was delicious.
So without further adieu, I give you...
 

Ryan's Colcannon
Adapted from Epiphany's Cookbook

1 lb. carrots
1/2 lb. yellow turnip, diced (I used potatoes and parsnips.)
2 cups shredded cooked cabbage or chopped cooked kale
2 Tbsp. choppes chives or scallions(optional...I completely forgot them.)
2 to 4 oz. butter
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese (optional...I used Cabot Seriously Sharp Cheese)
salt and pepper to taste
1 pinch nutmet (optional....I used it.)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Boil or steam the carrots and the turnip until done.  Drain well and turn into a large bowl .  Add the butter, 2 Tbsp. cheese (if you are using), salt, pepper and nutmeg and mash well.  Fold in the chopped cabbage or cooked kale, chives or scallions and mix well.   Turn the mixture into a baking dish and top with the remaining cheese and bake for 20 minutes.


Thanks so much for stopping by...

  4. I au paired in Belgium for a while and the family I worked for made something similar, so it's not just an Irish thing! There's a Dutch name for them too. There's no cheese in it though, so I think I like this version better--cheese makes everything tastier!

  10. While figuring out how to make scalable video calls was a daunting challenge, for Yuan's Zoom team, it was only half the battle. They also had to make Zoom frictionless enough that anyone could use it. So easy that it makes his customers happy.

  11. Zoom could work in any browser. It wouldn't need you to adjust your firewall settings. And unlike WebEx meetings, with their hard-to-remember pins and meeting IDs, Zoom would be accessible with a simple link.

  13. Yuan's plan for Zoom was to pilfer off WebEx's customers. To attract new users, Zoom began offering a freemium version of its product. Meetings under 40 minutes with up to 100 users would be free to use. Yuan's bet was that as more users tried Zoom, businesses would see that it worked better than WebEx, and would end up paying to switch to his new product.
