  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 6 medium size Idaho potatoes peeled and cubed
  • 6 cups loose kale stems removed, rinsed and chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  1. Add olive oil to large skillet over medium high heat.

  2. Once oil is heated up, add potatoes and kale. Stir. Add salt and pepper to taste, continue to stir.

  3. While occasionally stirring so the potatoes don't stick to the skillet, cook until potatoes are browned on both sides, about 10-15 minutes. The kale during this time will wilt down. Once a fork can easily slide through the potatoes, the dish is done.

  4. Serve warm, enjoy!
