One of my favorites! Quick to make and it's healthy comfort food. Serves 2 as a main dish, probably 4 as a side dish. From The Savory Way by Deborah Madison

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil the potatoes in salted water for 5-7 minutes until tender. Remove with a strainer, reserving cooking liquid.
  2. Wash the greens well and then chop, removing tough stems. Cook the greens until done in the potato water.
  3. Sautee the chilies and potatoes in water in a large skillet for 1 minute. Add the greens, tomatoes, and garlic. Cook for about 5 minutes, breaking up the potatoes and mixing everything together. Add salt and pepper to taste and serve.

This is one of my families favorite recipes! When tomatoes are in season I use two medium sized fresh tomatoes, diced. I usually use a 1/2 teaspoon of dried crushed red pepper instead of the dried red peppers. This is very filling but it is so good I always double the recipe! This is good food!

I used kale for this this, and really enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing.

I made this for my family and even kids ages 6 & 4 loved it. I used fresh tomatoes and mustard greens since that's what I had on hand. I also cooked some bacon with it (added to the fat, I know but it was yummy). I served it with scrambled eggs. Made for an easy supper.
