    hlkljgk's Note:

    i just threw this together last night when some great friends came over for dinner. it was a really tasty addition to the rest of the meal: big, fresh romaine salad, cran carrots (posted separately) sauteed mushrooms, my friend's lentil loaf (posted separately), rye bread, great spanish red wine, candidato-blueberry crumble for dessert (posted separately). and my husband and i just finished up the leftovers which reheated nicely. enjoy!

      Loved the flavor lift that the Kale, Leeks & garlic gave to the potatoes. This could be a do ahead recipe and reheat the potatoes just before serving. I have used dried Kale reconstituted with mashed potatoes - it is very good too. Thanksheather for a really good recipe. — Oct 17, 2004 Update - Made the recipe with fresh steamed Kale, chopped unfortunately did not have any leeks - still delicious thanks again Heather
