colcannon mashed potatoes with ginger honey glazed carrots

Another way to get your greens in! I love greens and am always trying to incorporate them into meals, here is one way,  colcannon mashed potatoes; mashed potatoes with greens mixed in, a nice simple Irish dish that makes greens extra tasty.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 
You make mashed potatoes the way you like them and greens the way you like them and mix together. I served it with ginger/honey glazed carrots and left-over Easter chicken and gravy, so it was pretty decadent around my house, but Id forgotten how good colcannon mashed potatoes are, they are so good.

And you can load up the greens in them. I use one whole bunch of kale to about 4 servings of mashed potatoes. Wash well and take the ribs off, no splashing!
