I really enjoy Kale with potatoes and decided to make a very simple version of it. It is quick to make and very flavorful. Use margarine instead of butter if you wish

  2. Add kale to the boiling potatoes.
  3. When potatoes are soft drain the potato kale mixture
  4. Add ricotta and butter, salt and pepper to the drained potatoes and kale - mash coarsely.
  5. Serve.

After trying this, I don't think I'll ever make mashed potatoes without kale again. Tastes great, and you can never have too much leafy greens in your diet. I also added some chives to this, and used Greek yogurt instead of ricotta. Really, you can toss kale into any mashed potato recipe and it should work. Thanks for sharing :)

I planted kale in my garden last summer and was looking for ways to make it that my family would eat it with no problems. This recipe was a hit. I am back to make it a third time as I put some kale in the freezer and thought I would let you know that we like this real well. I used the ricotta and butter and added Parmesan cheese. Thanks for the great recipe.

We enjoyed this recipe. I like the crunchy texture of the kale in cantrast with the smooth, creamy texture of the mashed poatoes. I didn't add ricotta our sour cream to the mix, but I did add a bit of milk and then I baked it in the oven with some cheese on top. Thanks, I'll definitely try this with ricotta next time.
