Kale is one of the most popular ingredients right now due to how healthy and verstaile it is. However, kale on it's own can be a bit... leafy. So instead of eating just leaves for dinner in order to get your superfood fix, throw some of this green vegetable into a comfort food favorite of yours -- like mashed potatoes! Although the mixture doesn't seem like it could work, kale and mashed potatoes make the perfect fit. The kale makes this traditionally high-fat, low-nutrient side dish a health boost while the mashed potatoes make it easier to eat. Plus, what's not delicious when paired with mashed potatoes?
- 5 large russet potatoes, rinsed
- 4 cloves garlic
- 2/3 cup low sodium, organic chicken broth
- 1/4 cup fat free sour cream
- 2 tablespoons low-fat cream cheese
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 cup kale, wilted
- Liberal dashes of salt and pepper
- Prepare potatoes by cutting them into quarters and placing them in a large pot. Add enough water to cover them and set to boil. Boil potatoes for about six minutes or until soft when pierced with a fork. Rinse and place back into the pot.
- While potatoes boil, saute garlic in 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil until softened, about four minutes.
- Add in 2/3 cup chicken broth, cream cheese, sour cream and garlic. Beat with a handheld mixer or immersion blender until soft. Stir in wilted chopped kale. Add additional chicken broth or cream cheese for creaminess. Season liberally with salt and pepper and enjoy!
