It seems suitably lenten to eat kale and leeks and potatoes, but I suspect that, strictly speaking, the eggs should have stayed on the other side of Ash Wednesday. Fact is though that I love colcannon. This was made from one giant potato, mashed; a head of kale, steamed; a large leek, sauteed in plenty of olive oil, then mixed in the pan with the other ingredients until they start to singe a bit. Make 4 little depressions with a spoon on the surface, gently break in eggs, and finish in a moderate oven. Eight minute seems to be the right time for the eggs to set to an oozing goldenness. Sometimes I get it wrong, and they set too hard, but today it was just perfect.
With thanks to Joanna for inspiring me with her post about her vegetable box. And I saw when I visited today that she is aiming to take a picture a day for the next 40 days. Me too.
