COLCANNON WITH OMNIVORE SICILIA

colcannon with omnivore sicilia for a perfect san patrick's day

Have you ever had colcannon? It is one of the most celebrated Irish potato dishes and a very simple recipe. This year we decided to tweak it by adding a spoon of Sicilia

  • 2 lbs russet potatoes
  • 4 full cups of chopped greens (kale, chard, cabbage or other leafy greens)
  • 1 1/3 cups of milk
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 4 scallions (green part only) minced
  • 2 tsp Omnivore Sicilia 
  • Omnivore Salt
Boil potatoes in a large pot. Cover the potatoes with water and cook on medium- high until tender. Drain off the water, set aside and cover to keep warm.
 
Melt 4 tbsp of butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the greens and cook until just wilted, for about 5 mins.
 
Add the scallions, the remaining butter, and Omnivore Sicilia in a medium pot. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook for about 2 minutes. Then add the greens, pour the milk, mix well, season to taste with Omnivore Salt, and add the potatoes. Mash until smooth, leaving a few small lumps in the potatoes. Remove the pot from heat, and serve immediately.

To serve in the traditional Irish manner, make a small well in the center and place two big spoons of soft butter to make a “lake.”  Add a teaspoon of Sicilia to the melted butter serve in the Sicilian way :).
Serve immediately, spooning the butter from the well onto each serving, if desired.
