Potato, Leeks And Kale!

The combination of leeks, potatoes and kale are just fantastic, the flavors all melt together.  Try this simple saute...

Recipe for four:
1/2 yellow onion, chopped
3 medium sized red potatoes, cubed
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 leeks, chopped, white and pale green parts only
1 bunch kale, washed, stems removed and chopped
2 T butter
1 T olive oil
Salt, pepper and a pinch of chili flakes

First boil the potatoes until cooked but still firm.  Then drain and set aside.

Add the butter and oil to a saute pan, and heat over medium high heat.  When it's hot add the onion and leeks, and cook until soft.  Then add the garlic and seasoning, and cook for another minute, then add the potatoes and kale, lower the heat and stir until the kale is tender, you can use a lid on the pan to speed things up if you want!

At this point you can serve it onto some warm plates along with a protein of your choice, or add some stock and you have a soup!

Tip:  Remember to season well when cooking with potatoes to avoid a bland meal!

Bon Appetit!  Chef Hobbes
