Champ is a simple Irish dish that can be eaten as a side or with some baked tofu mixed in eaten as a main.

Makes four side dish serves.


  • 3 large potatoes, peeled and cut into pieces
  • 3 spring onions finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of dairy free margarine
  • 3/4 cup of soy milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Boil the potato until tender, drain and set aside.

Melt the butter in the pot.  Add the spring onion and fry for a minute, then add the milk, turn the heat down low and leave to simmer for 2 minutes.

Add the potato to the pot, mash well, then whip with a fork. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Traditionally it is served with another tablespoon of margarine buried in the mash, but I usually give this a miss.
