Kale and Potato Recipe

Member Lorin sent over a great recipe to use for your kale!

Recipe:
(adapted from The Country Cooking of Ireland by Colman Andrews)

serves 8

5 or 6 russet potatoes
2 tbsp butter, plus additional pats for serving
3 cups chopped kale (leaves only)
1 1/3 cups whole milk
4 green onions, chopped
salt and pepper

Put the potatoes in a large pan and cover about halfway with water.
Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for about 40 minutes,
or until potatoes are tender. Pour out the water but keep the potatoes
in the pan and let stand, covered, for about 5 minutes.

Melt the butter in a wide skillet and add the kale. Cook until wilted,
about 5 minutes.

Bring the milk and green onions to a simmer in a saucepan and add a
few pinches of salt and pepper. Stir in the kale, turn off the heat,
and keep covered.

Peel the potatoes and put them in a large bowl. Add the milk and kale,
and mash until nearly smooth, seasoning with additional salt and
pepper to taste.

Divide among bowls and top each serving with a pat of butter.

(I used two cups of milk and skipped adding butter to each serving,
and I chopped up two scapes and simmered them with the milk and green
onions.)
