A perfect way to boost nutrition in mashed potatoes, this is a favorite Irish side dish but can certainly appear at Oktoberfest in late September with bratwurst or sauerbraten. I like the subtle crunch and texture cabbage provides, and using red potatoes and leaving the skins on, adds extra color and nutrition. (An optional version is to double or triple the recipe and after cooking, spread in an oblong baking dish, sprinkle with sharp cheddar cheese and bake in a moderate oven until heated through well and cheese melts.)
