I found a recipe for Kale Mashed Potato here! I changed the recipe a little and made it into a soup. We had last night for our Meatless Monday! Yumm...
3 baking potatoes, peeled and sliced
4 tablespoons coconut oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 bunch kale, large stems stripped and discarded, leaves chopped
1/2+ cup warm milk or cream
freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan, for garnish (opt)
Put the potatoes in a large pot and cover with water or chicken broth. Add a pinch of salt (ommit if using chicken broth), two sprigs of fresh parsley and two bay leaves . Bring the water to a boil and continue boiling for 20 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender. Discard the parsley and bay leaves.
Heat two tablespoons of coconut oil in a large pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic, chopped kale, a big pinch of salt, and saute just until tender - about a minute. Set aside.
Mash the potatoes with a potato masher or fork. For a creamier consistency, blend half of thye potatoes. Add the milk (or cream) a few big splashes at a time. Season with salt and pepper.
Dump the kale on top of the potatoes and give a quick stir. Sprinkle with scallions, Parmesan cheese, and shallots.
•Use mashed white beans in place of the mashed potatoes.
•Add some sauteed or baked mushrooms (chopped).
