This recipe was inspired by Colcannon Recipe—Paleo style from Confessions of an Overworked Mom, thanks Ellen. I would have made this, but there seemed to be a run on parsnips this past weekend.

Here are some organic ingredients you can use in this recipe. For me a double boiler is a must have. It was the first cooking pot I purchased when I first started equipping my kitchen when I was in my early twenties.
