Oh Colcannon, my Colcannon, oh Colcannon, I love you sooooo!!! *singing*

I love this dish. It will be the first solid food my children eat. If I had a Top 10, it would be in the top 2, no contest!

I cannot say enough good things about this, but I only hope you will overlook the unstyled pictures, and take a leap.

I’ve made this irish potatoes, pureed cauliflower, and yams, but sweet potatoes take the cake!

Ingredients (Serves 4)

4 large sweet potatoes, cubed
1 medium head of cabbage, shredded
1 large mackerel, head removed
1 large red onion, sliced
50g of green beans, chopped
1 teaspoon of ground dry pepper
2 teaspoons of ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon of coriander (optional)
1 double stock cube
2 teaspoons of salt
3 tablespoons of coconut oil
1/4 cup of coconut milk


Boil the fish with 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Debone and flake.

Cook the potatoes with 1/2 teaspoon of salt, about 12 minutes.

Process/mash the potatoes with the milk, coriander, and black pepper.

Pour oil into a wok, place over medium-high heat. After 1 minute, add onions, cabbage and green beans, and sautee for 3 minutes.

Add the flaked fish, stir to combine. Cook for 2 minutes, add the mashed potatoes.

Add the remaining salt, dry pepper, and stock cube. Stir, and cook for 2 minutes.

Enjoy, and remember,
It’s sooo good for you!



Hi, my name is Chidinma. I’ve been happily married for 4+ years (actually almost 6 years now), and my husband and I have been trying to have our own children for almost all the time we’ve been married, with no success…yet. We haven’t lost hope (far from it), and we believe it will happen very soon.
