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.



  1. Slice the potatoes thickly and boil in salted water. Once cooked, drain and mash.
  2. Slice the cabbage and steam or boil gently in salted water, do not over-cook!
  3. Melt the butter in a heavy bottomed pan and cook the onions or leeks. Once they are all completely soft, add the cooked potatoes and cabbage. Add a little cream, season to taste and beat together.
  4. Place the mixture in an oven safe dish, cover with Cheddar cheese and place under a hot broiler to brown.
  5. Garnish with chives and serve.
