SPRING ONION MASH/CHAMP

SPRING ONION MASH/CHAMP

In order to prepare the traditional Irish Champ recipe, an Irish dish recipe, you cook the chopped green onions (spring onions) including the green parts together with milk and Irish butter. On this occasion, I wanted to try it differently by frying the spring onions in olive oil.

However, if you want to make it following the classic and authentic recipe but vegan, you just need to cook the green onion (or scallions) together with plant-based milk (as a vegan option) and a knob of butter (vegan or margarine). Just chop the green onions and add them to a cooking pot and add the butter and milk. Bring to a boil, cover with a lid and cook until you see bubbles and remove from the heat.

For the mash, you can prepare your mashed potatoes by using russet potatoes, Yukon gold, or other potatoes that are great for a mash, then pour little by little the milk with the spring onions. Then, integrate well.

I love to try new recipes, transform them into vegan-friendly dishes, and personalize them. Therefore, I always give you ideas about other ingredients that you can include in your recipes to make them unique! Furthermore, this is a great recipe to enjoy with family and friends on many occasions.

SEASONING FOR CHAMP

This Champ is a superb side dish recipe, I usually sauté some fresh green onions in a pan with spray olive oil and chopped garlic. Once they are ready I add a knob of vegan butter (or margarine) and a pinch of Himalayan or sea salt. Although this is a quite simple yet delicious way to prepare green onions, you can make them oil-free and replace the oil or vegan butter with other ingredients; for example, water or vegetable broth.

Furthermore, you can add other spices to season this comforting side dish from Ireland; such as curry powder, or just season with salt and pepper. For more ideas, check the following list below.

  • Black pepper.
  • White pepper.
  • Onion powder.
  • Chili powder.
  • Vegan butter or margarine.
  • Mustard of your choice.

This Champ is a delicious meal to enjoy for any occasion. With vegan ingredients ideal for a gourmet side dish with an incredible flavor.
