Colcannon Soup

colcannon soupIt might not seem like potatoes, cabbage and an onion would make a delicious and satisfying dish with Colcannon Soup, but trust me, it is a great meal!

I know soup is often relegated to not main fare stuff and this would be great as a first course, but honestly, this is fantastic in that it’s fuss free and vegetarian (could even be vegan with dairy free milk) and is creamy and filling and lacks nothing even though it doesn’t have many ingredients.

The Irish have put these ingredients together for something that is absolutely best served with at least one slice of this bread, trust me in that. Do you enjoy soup friends? I’d love to know your thoughts in the comments below!

How to prepare Colcannon Soup

  • Cook your onion: Cook and cover the onion until translucent.
  • Add the tattys and cabbage: Toss in the potatoes and cabbage and stir.
  • Stock time: Add in the stock, ensuring it covers the vegetables.
  • Simmer: Allow time for the vegetables to simmer, slightly covered.
  • Blend: Blend the vegetables to form a smooth soup (see note if you don’t have a stick blender).
  • Milk it: Add the milk and stir to combine.
  • Serve it up: Serve up into bowls with a dash of finely chopped spring onions for the top.
  • Dig in: Enjoy with a slice or two of Irish Brown Bread.

Tips for the best Colcannon Soup

Using a blender: If you do not have an immersion blender, it is best to wait for the soup to cool before you pour into a blender as the pressure from the heat can cause the top of the blender to explode which can cause injuries.
