I got this recipe out of a newspaper & tucked it into a cookbook. It’s dated 5.05.08, and I’m sure I never made it. But tonight, I had the ingredients ready and you can make the recipe this way, also.
I had on hand already cooked potatoes, so I peeled and mashed those. I, also, had a small amount of steamed cauliflower left from another recipe, so I mashed that into the potatoes, too.
I had a small amount of kale already cooked from earlier this week. I’d cooked it by tossing it in olive oil and garlice, then steaming it until it was tender. I chopped that up and tossed it into the potatoes.
I didn’t have green onions so I finely chopped regular onions and cooked them in a mix of some heavy whipping cream that I had, mixed with some soy milk. I mixed that into the potatoes as per the recipe. When all were mixed together, I poured melted butter on top.
The quantities were less than the original recipe, and I think you can play around with that. Mine made enough for 2 hearty servings.
The result was quite delicious. Even my husband, who wont go near kale, enjoyed the flavor of this dish.
I hope you try it, then let me know how you like it.
