Potato and Kale Patties
Trying to get more kale in our diets over here, you know, because it’s one of those *super* foods we are all supposed to eat. It’s really not that difficult, just have to put your mind to it. And besides, it tastes great.
Try these and let me know what you think.
Here’s what you need:
Some mashed potatoes
Some chopped and cooked kale
Some seasonings (I used lots of salt, pepper, garlic powder and thyme)
Some milk to loosen the mash (non-dairy is fine)
Here's what you do:
Boil the potatoes until fork tender, remove them and set aside. Cook the kale in the same water. Grind up the cooked kale in a processor with a bit of the potato/kale water to loosen. Add the potatoes, milk, seasonings and blend. Form little potato patties and place on oiled baking sheet. I baked mine for about 25 minutes and they were great. I didn’t use very much oil so they really didn’t brown on the bottom, but they tasted great!
Get healthy! Eat kale!
