#SecretRecipeClub ~ Colcannon Soup

Welcome to the February Special Themed "Leprechaun and Bunnies" reveal day! We had an extra Monday this month so those who wanted to participate go to jump in and do a special reveal day - how could I pass up a St. Patrick's Day / Easter Secret Recipe Club event focusing on corned beef hash, anything green, etc. and / or Easter with suggestions like carrot cake, spring dishes, etc.!

I was paired with the fantastic blog "Dancing Veggies" for today and I had so many options!! Here are a couple that grabbed me right away during my searches: St. Patrick's Day CookiesColcannon SoupSpinach and ShellsPasta PrimaveraCarrot Cake Cake Pops, and I could keep going!

This soup was really fantastic - it really grew on me and reheats very well. I pureed most of the initial mix, but left a few chunks of the potato along with the cabbage that is added in after the puree. We thought it could use a touch more salt but didn't want to increase the added seasoning so put a sprinkling of crisped bacon on top - delicious! Happy St. Patrick's Day and Easter (almost)!

Colcannon Soup from Dancing Veggies


1 TBS oregano 
2 tsp thyme 
1 small onion, diced 
1 TBS minced garlic
3 lbs potatoes, washed well and cubed
2 cups vegetable stock
2 cups chicken stock
4 cups water
3 cups chopped cabbage

  1. Heat the EVOO in a large dutch oven over medium heat. Add the spices and cook for 30 seconds stirring frequently. Add the onion and garlic and cook for an additional 5-7 minutes, until the onion begins to brown.
  2. Add the potatoes and allow to slightly brown before adding the stock, water, and half the cabbage. Bring to a quick boil then cover and turn heat to low, simmering for 30 minutes.
  3. Remove the cover and use an immersion blender to break down the soup to your desired consistency. Add the remaining cabbage, along with additional liquid if a thinner soup is desired. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Serving suggestion: Top with crisped, chopped bacon pieces.
