Irish Colcannon Puffs http://blog.fatfreevegan.com/2009/03/colcannon-puffs.html
Cut potatoes in ~½” cubes and put in a large pot. Cover them with water. Bring to boil and cook until tender. While potatoes are cooking, remove center stalks from the kale and slice the leaves into strips. When potatoes are done, lift them out with a slotted spoon and place in large mixing bowl. Put kale into the potato water and cook for 6 min or until kale is tender. Remove kale with a slotted spoon and put into a food processor. Add ¼ cup of cooking liquid and pulse to a fine chop. Preheat oven to 425 F. Mash potatoes and add kale and all remaining ingredients. Stir well. Using a well-rounded tablespoon, form into 1” balls. Place on a baking sheet covered with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Bake for 20 min. Carefully turn over and bake for 20 min more, until lightly browned. To save time, you can also form these into larger patties and pan-fry in a non-stick skillet.
Portion size is dependent on the amount of potatoes. ½ cup or a small fist-sized amount of potato = 1 carb. And you snuck in some veggies! Spinach would probably be just fine in place of the kale and nutritional yeast flakes are vegans’ way of getting cheese flavor into meals, but is omittable if you don’t want to buy any. Arrowroot powder is a thickener and these might be fine without it. Feast Irish, feast green, and as always…FEAST ON!!!
