I made these Colcannon Puffs yesterday as a side dish for dinner on St. Patrick’s Day. This recipe is adapted from fatfreevegan:
- 1 1/2 pounds potatoes (I left the skin on)
- 6 ounces kale
- 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
- 2 teaspoons salt (or to taste)
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon thyme
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 2 tablespoons soymilk
- 2 tablespoons potato starch or corn starch
- Cut the potatoes into small cubes (about 1/2-inch), put them in a large pot, and cover with water. Bring to a boil and cook until potatoes are tender.
- While the potatoes are cooking, remove the center stalk from the kale and slice the leaves into strips. When the potatoes are done, lift them out with a slotted spoon and place in a large mixing bowl. Put the kale into the potato water and cook for 6 minutes or until kale is tender. Remove kale with a slotted spoon to a food processor. Add 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid and pulse to chop fine.
- Preheat oven to 425 F. Mash the potatoes and add the kale and all remaining ingredients. Stir well. Using a well-rounded tablespoon, form into balls about 1 inch across. Place them on an oiled baking sheet or, preferably, a baking sheet covered with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Bake for 20 minutes. Carefully turn over and bake fore 20 minutes more, until lightly browned.
This recipe makes about 30 puffs (mine didn’t turn out as round as fatfreevegan’s, but they still tasted great!) My picture above only shows the puffs I ate as a side dish to the rest of my green dinner:
I’ll post the recipe for the stuffed pepper tomorrow!
