here in l.a., we went from the upper 70s to rain and back again today. i had to work yesterday and so by the time i got home, cooking (and meatless monday) was the last thing on my mind. luckily for me, i had all the fixin’s for this hearty and tummy-satisfying comfort food on hand! heidi’s super simple recipe for kale mashed potatoes is not only easy to make, but a terrific way to get kids to eat their dark leafy greens! it would be equally delicious with spinach (she says it might be a struggle), but i think if you put some cheddar and/or jack cheese on it and wrap it in a tortilla, it could happen!
i love this recipe, not only for its simplicity, but because it doesn’t call for a ton of butter. she says you can also make it with white beans, i’m definitely going to try that next time…but for now, i have some leftovers and i think crispy kale mashed potatoes and eggs are on my meatless monday breakfast horizon!
