Twice Baked Colcannon Potatoes

by | March 21, 2019

Twice baked potatoes are the perfect marriage of mashed and baked. You get the creamy inside with the crispy skin so essentially the best of both worlds. Since the “wearin o’ the green” day is coming up I wanted to collaborate 2 more dishes: twice baked potatoes and colcannon mash. Traditionally you use cabbage or any green, we chose kale because it’s a superfood. So amongst all the buttery mashed potato goodness you still get a healthy dose of greens. And an added bonus you have a hint of green so feel free to serve this with confidence on St. Patrick’s Day.

Twice Baked Colcannon Potatoes


  • 2 medium russet potatoes
  • 1 tbsp. avocado oil
  • 2 cups fresh kale, washed de-ribbed and finely chopped
  • 1 tsp. garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 cup vegan butter
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup plain unsweetened plant milk


  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Scrub the potatoes and pierce them with a fork about 4 times each. Rub with avocado oil and place on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes. Remove potatoes from oven and reduce heat to 350 degrees.
  2. Once potatoes are cool enough to touch, cut them in half lengthwise. Scoop out the middle of the potato, leaving a small border to keep the shape of the potato skin. Place potato skins back on the baking sheet.
  3. Heat a large frying pan over medium heat and add butter. When the butter has melted stir in garlic.
  4. Add kale and simmer over medium heat until tender, about 4-5 minutes. Add kale and drippings to a standing mixer.
  5. Add in scooped out potatoes, salt, nutritional yeast, and plant milk. beat on high for 1-2 minutes until creamy.
  6. Spoon mixture into the potato skins and bake at 350 for 15 minutes.
  7. Turn oven to broil and place on the top shelf. Broil for 1-2 minutes until the tops of the potatoes are golden brown.
  8. Top with vegan sour cream and green onion.
