Irish Mashed Potatoes

Yield 6 servings (serving size: 1 cup)
"I created this recipe after tasting the best mashed potatoes I had ever had, in Dublin, Ireland. The secret ingredients were cabbage and cream. I substituted low-fat cream cheese and fat-free sour cream for the cream with great results. If I have leftover cabbage, I freeze it to have on hand for this recipe." --CL Reader
