Today my parents roasted a turkey, which sometimes proves to be difficult for me, navigating my way through a meal based on meat. Luckily they also made turnips, green beans, mashed potatoes, mashed yams, and cabbage salad. Lots of potatoes and cabbage = celebrating our Irish-ness. I also marinated some extra firm tofu in some Bragg's, apple cider vinegar, with a splash of water for about 1/2 an hour. I read a recipe from Fatfree Vegan for these little potato balls called colcannon puffs. Mine turned out quite different then hers did, and I would hesitate to call them colcannon, so I'll just say they're colcannon inspired. Man oh man were they delicious.


6 oz of baby spinach

4 large scoops of mashed potatoes

2 tbsp of nutritional yeast

1/2 tsp of salt

1 tsp of thyme

1 tsp of rosemary

black pepper to taste


Mix all the ingredients on a bowl

Scoop about 1 tbsp at a time onto a baking pan

bake at 425F for 20 minutes

Cook under the broiler for about 5 minutes
