4 large shallots, thinly sliced
1 large leek-halved and thinly sliced

Cut and steam the potatoes until tender. Return to the still hot pot and add 1/4 cup butter, milk, kosher salt and 1/4 teaspoons pepper. Mash together.

Melt the remaining butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add shallots and leeks. Saute until they begin to soften.

Mix the cabbage and mashed potatoes together well. Sprinkle with the green onion slices before serving.
