Colcannon, traditional fare in Ireland is a delicious dish; the cabbage, kale, leeks and potatoes provide a wallop of nutrients: Vitamin A, B1, B2, B6, minerals, protein and fiber. An old Irish Halloween tradition was to conceal charms in the colcannon that would reveal someone's future, such as remain a bachelor or a spinster or become rich. Serve colcannon paired with a corned beef brisket (this week's Fresh Meal Solutions) and you have the perfect celebratory meal for St. Patrick's Day, for the Irish in all of us, at least for a day!
