Bubble & Squeak (Leftover Mash and Greens)

Bubble & Squeak (Leftover Mash and Greens)The first recipe for Bubble and Squeak was found in the early 1800’s, but it became most popular during WW2 due to rationing. It is the perfect way to use up the leftovers from a traditional roast dinner. It is just a combination of potato and greens.

This dish is so called due to the bubbling and squeaking that occurs during cooking. But it is at it’s most musical with cabbage. Cabbage seems to be more noisy than most greens for some reason. I used green beans and peas in this particular recipe, but any greens will work.

Fabulous Find………Thrive Market

Occasionally I share a fabulous find with you and today I want to tell you about Thrive Market. I shop online as much as possible to save time, gas and a great deal of aggravation. This fabulous find is a store with all the green and sustainable products I like to use, and all the gluten free and organic foods I usually get, but at really low prices. You get 15% off your first order and free shipping over $50. It’s like Costco with a membership. Give it a try and if you don’t want the membership, just cancel after your order.
