Mashed Potatoes With Kale (Really!)

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Mariah

This is a great kid friendly way to add greens to a meal. I was a little skeptical of this recipe the first time I tried it, but it is really good. It's from a book called The Mom's Guide to Meal Makeovers, which I highly recommend for anyone trying to make fast, yummy, super healthy meals for their families. Enjoy!

I have not used your recipe but wanted to share...yumm! My background is dutch and potatoe with Kale..."Boer kole"..well spelled something like that :) is fabulous! We don't use parm though and do add a few other ingredients, perhaps I should measure it out sometime, I think you would like it as well. Haven't had it in a while and the warm fuzzy I feel right now makes me want to make it! So glad you posted it!
