Today I tried this recipe from CookingLight.com. It is a great, healthy, light recipe for dinner (but can also be used as an appetizer or for lunch!). I modified it slightly to make it even healthier, and my modified recipe is below (edits are in purple) You can find the original at this link. Hope you enjoy it!
- 12 cups water (I only needed about 8 cups)
- 1 bunch kale, trimmed (about 4 ounces) – I ended up using closer to 6 or 7 oz
- 2 2/3 cups (1-inch) cubed Yukon gold or red potato (about 1 pound) – I used 5 small red potatoes, and I left the skins on for extra fiber!
- 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon butter or stick margarine – I left out the butter – you don’t need it to saute the onions/sage and you still get great flavor from the olive oil while saving on fat/calories!
- 3 cups diced onion
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh sage
- 1/4 cup sliced green onions
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- Cooking spray
- Sage sprigs (optional)
- Parmesean cheese (optional)
- Ketchup (optional)
- Bring water to a boil in a Dutch oven; add kale. Cover and cook over medium heat 5 minutes or until tender. Remove kale with a slotted spoon, reserving cooking liquid. Chop kale and set aside.
- Add potato to reserved cooking liquid in pan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes or until tender. Drain; partially mash potatoes. Stir in kale and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
- Preheat oven to 400°.
- Heat oil and butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt, diced onion, and chopped sage. Cook 13 minutes or until browned. Combine potato mixture, onion mixture, green onions, and pepper in the pan. Remove from heat; cool slightly. Divide potato mixture into 8 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/2-inch-thick patty. Place patties on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 20 minutes.
- Preheat broiler.
- Broil patties for 5 minutes or until browned. For 4 of the patties, I topped them with 1 Tbsp each of fresh, grated parmesean for some variety. Tasted great! Garnish with sage sprigs, and serve with ketchup if desired (it tasted super yummy with ketchup!)
