Vegan Irish Colcannon Potatoes and Cabbage


Colcannon is a traditional Irish side dish made with potatoes and cabbage, and this version is both vegetarian and vegan and it's gluten-free as well (double check that your soy milk is gluten-free). Make this recipe for St. Patrick's Day, or any day that you are longing for a wee taste of Ireland.

  • water for boiling
  • 5 large potatoes
  • 1 head green cabbage, chopped
  • 3 leeks, sliced
  • 1 cup soy milk
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg (optional)
  • salt and pepper to taste


Place potatoes in a large pot and add enough water to cover the potatoes. Bring to a boil and cook for at least 20 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.

In a separate pot, boil the cabbage in water for 15 minutes. Drain and set aside.

In another pot or skillet, cook leeks in soy milk until tender, about 15 minutes.

When potatoes are done cooking, mash them together with leeks, soy milk, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Add cabbage and stir to combine. Add more salt and pepper to taste and enjoy!
