Cauliflower Colcannon

This cauliflower colcannon recipe is a low carb version of the Irish side dish, but uses cauliflower in place of the traditional mashed potato. As well as a side dish, colcannon is also an Irish song. Colcannon is an Irish recipe of mashed potatoes with kale […]

Baked Cabbage Wedges

Cabbage wedges are covered with a cheese sauce and baked in the oven for a delicious cheesy cabbage casserole.   An easy side dish recipe that is delicious and tasty. I wanted to liven up some cabbage and do something different with them rather than roasting […]
