Rustic Rumpledethumps #BritishFoodFortnight

Traditional Scottish Rumpledethumps Veganized! Creamy Potato, hearty cabbage and sweet onions topped with cheese and baked until bubbling. Autumn Comfort Food. #vegan

What on Earth is Rumbledethumps? I hear many of you asking!

Rumbledethumps is a traditional Scottish dish much like a Scottish version of Bubble and Squeak or Irish Colcannon. Basically, mashed potatoes with yummy things added – onions, cabbage and cheese. Much like Bubble and Squeak, it is thought to have been created as a way of using up leftovers. Nowadays, it is delicious enough to make from scratch and even sold in supermarkets as a ready meal side dish. Continue reading

So the occasional pasta and sauteed tofu also must make an appearance. Continue reading
