Here’s a recipe my family likes using kale or other cooking greens. It was originally from
Tom Ney, Chef at Rodale Test Kitchen printed in Organic Gardening.
2 pounds of peeled and quartered potatoes
1 head of greens (chard, collards and kale work best)
½ of a large sweet onion, sliced
3 sliced garlic cloves
2 tablespoons olive oil
Boil potatoes until soft. Cut the leaves and thin stems from the main stalks of greens. Fill a
basin with cool water and dunk the greens until rinsed. Drain well in a colander. In a large
pot over medium heat, lightly sauté garlic and onion in the olive oil for about 5 minutes. Add
the greens, don’t stir, cover and cook for 2 minutes. Reduce heat. Season lightly with salt
and pepper and toss. Cover and cook for 10 more minutes, stirring frequently. Drain and
coarsely mash the cooked potatoes and blend them with the cooked greens.
