Kale Mashed Potatoes
5 potatoes, yukon gold works best, peeled and cut into quarters
4 tablespoon olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 bunch kale, chopped
3/4 cup warm milk (I used skim)
5 scallions, chopped
1/4 cup parmesan (optional)
1 Put chopped potatoes in large pot and cover with water. Add a pinch of salt and bring to a boil, until tender. About 20 minutes.
2 While the potatoes are boiling, heat two tablespoons olive oil over medium heat in a saucepan. Add the kale and minced garlic and a pinch of salt. Saute until softened.
3 Remove tender potatoes and drain. Mash with a potato masher, fork or a hand mixer.
Slowly stir in the warm milk, a little at a time until desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper.
4 Pour the kale over the mashed potatoes and stir.
5 Make a well at the top of the mashed potatoes and pour remaining two tablespoons of olive oil. Top with scallions and parmesan cheese.
