What a beautiful color of that mash! It looks so creamy and yum :) I have never thought of paring potato and cabbage before :)
This looks great. Sort of a purple version of the Irish Colcannon.

We seldom get purple potatoes over here but sure why not with the US ones. The local potatoes does not work for mashing for I have tried before.

Lovely and you know I have this high weakness for potatoes, so whats stopping me from drooling over this recipe you have shared.

I have seen purple potatoes but have yet to cook with them. Your blend here with the cabbage does look inviting. I may need to pick up some of those potatoes next go round. Delicious recipe!
Lovely photos. I thought the same as Anita (Hungry Couple) it sounds like purple colcannon to me!
