Better Homes and Gardens Pressure Cooker Cookbook
Colcannon (Pressure Cooker Recipe)

3 cups coarsley chopped cabbage
3/4 cup thinly sliced leeks, white part only
2/3 cup milk
2 T margarine or butter
3 cups potatoes, peeled and cut into 3/4 inch slices
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper

In a 4 to 6 qt pressure cooker place the cabbage, leeks, milk and margarine or butter. Layer the potatoes over the cabbage mixture and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Lock lid in place and place pressure cooker regulator on vent pipe (if first generation cooker). Over high heat, bring cooker up to pressure. Reduce heat so pressure is just enough to maintain a gentle rocking. Cook for 5 minutes.

Quick release the pressure. Carefully remove lid. Mixture will appear curdled.

Remove veggie mixture to a large mixing bowl. Mash with a potato masher or with an electric mixer at low speed, adding additional milk if necessary to make light and fluffy.
