My Meatless Mondays - Cream Cheese Colcannon

I have made colcannon over the years and it is a dish, we like.  This is unlike any, I have made, previously and although delicious, it is hard to believe that it has onions and cabbage in it.  The vegetables are boiled and are soft and when we ate this dish, my hubby thought it was mashed potatoes and I would have, also, if I had not known better.  This is from and I did make a number of changes.  I would suggest adding some corned beef to the dish and not boiling the vegetables.  Maybe browning them would make a difference or even leaving them crispy. 

Pareve Cream Cheese Colcannon (adapted from

Pareve is neither meat nor milk.  In order to serve with meat, I can't use the original cheese in the recipe.

Servings: 4


4 large potatoes
4 cups cabbage, shredded
1 large onion, chopped
1/2 cup Rice Dream
1 tablespoon margarine
1 (3 ounce) packages Tofutti cream cheese, softened
salt and pepper to taste
chives sprinkled on top


Grease 12 muffin tin inserts.  (10) Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, 15-20 minutes. Drain and reserve the cooking liquid. Allow potatoes to cool until they can be handled.

Boil cabbage and onion with the reserved potato water in a pot until softened, about 5 minutes. Drain.

I used a ricer to mash the potatoes. Mash Rice milk and margarine into potatoes until mixture is smooth. Stir drained cabbage and onion into potato mixture. Fold cream cheese, salt and black pepper into potato mixture, stirring until the cream cheese melts.

Pour potato mixture into prepared muffin tins . Bake in a preheated oven until browned, 25 minutes.

Sprinkle chives on top.  Eat and enjoy.
Let's look back.
