    Mille®'s Note:

    The name for this British dish means "mixed together" - rumbled, and "bashed together" - thumped. This is a meatless main course but can also be served as a vegetable dish along with meat.

      WOW something so simple. The guys just loved it. I didn't beat the potatoes at the end; I used my masher real good though, topped with sharp chedder yummy. We had Roast Pork, Sliced tomatoes with basil dressing with these and for dessert we had apple crisp.

      I think I took the rumbled out of the thump... I sauteed the onion, added the cabbage to the pan after microwaving for 3 minutes, and put the mix on the bottom of the casserole dish. Then I topped this with the mashed potatoes and cheese, a la a veggie shepherd's pie. And it turned out very well! A nice combo of flavors.

      Kale is a lot tastier with butter, potatoes, and cheese! I used less than the recommended amount of butter and I still thought this was a bit greasy.
