If you love mashed potatoes like I do, then you are about to be a very happy foodie!
Recipe type: Side Dish
Cuisine: Irish
Serves: 6 servings
  • 3 pounds red-skinned potatoes
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 bunch kale
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 to 6 cloves garlic
  • 4 green onions
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese
  • Kosher salt
  • Fresh ground pepper
Preparation Instructions
  1. Chop the potatoes – do not peel. Place the pieces in a pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and boil until tender, about 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, dice 6 cloves garlic. Wash the kale leaves, remove the tough stems, and chop the leaves into small pieces. In a skillet, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil; then add the kale and garlic and saute for about 4 minutes until the kale is completely wilted and tender. Season with ¼ teaspoon kosher salt.
  3. Chop the scallions. Warm the 1 cup milk in the microwave (for about 1 minute).
  4. When the potatoes are done (test with a fork or by tasting), drain them. Then pour in the warm milk and mash the potatoes with a masher, adding more milk if desired to get to a thinner consistency. Season with about 1 teaspoon kosher salt and lots of fresh ground pepper. Then stir in the kale, garlic, chopped scallions, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and ½ cup parmesan cheese. Taste and adjust seasonings as desired, adding more olive oil, cheese, salt, or pepper as necessary.
