      Easy peasy and delicious. Crunchy kale in mashed potatoes, I loved it!

      This was the perfect recipe for the organic beet greens, garlic whistles and Egyptian walking onions I purchased at the farmers' market today and I'm happy I found both the Egyptian walking onions and this recipe. Easy directions and equally simple to prepare. You could take this recipe so many different routes. Reviewed for ZWT 2009.

      These were great. I loved being able to get some leafy greens into a food my kids love. They never even mentioned the spinach that I put in there. I added a few cloves of garlic to the boiling water and had to cook a bit longer than stated but it was no biggie. I used about 1 cup of milk, I figured I could always add more milk-couldn't take any out. We will make these again I am sure. Thanks for a keeper.
