For the mash...

  1. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and add the potatoes. Return to the boil and cook, covered, for 15-20 mins or until the potatoes are tender; you should be able to easily pierce them with a fork. 
  2. In a seperate, smaller pan bring water to the boil and add the shredded cabbage. Boil for 5-10 mins until tender, keeping a close eye that it does not over cook.
  3. Drain the potatoes through a colander, then set aside to steam dry for 3-4 mins – this will help them become extra fluffy when mashed.
  4. Meanwhile, put the milk in the potato pan and gently warm through over a low heat. Tip the dry potatoes back into the pan and mash well until fully combined with the milk. Keep mashing for a really smooth mash, scooping around the edges of the pan to ensure nothing is missed, or leave slightly textured if preferred.
  5. Dot over the butter, spring onions and cabbage then season and stir to mix in before serving.
