Green mashed potatoes

This recipe is in the spirit of the 'eat more kale' movement. Green things are not my husband's favorite. This recipe is added to the list of greens that he will happily consume. There is a definite sharp kale flavor to this dish. It's very refreshing when served with smoked sausages.

8 medium Russet potatoes
10 leaves of kale
5-6 scallions
3 tbsp butter
0.25 cup cream
freshly ground black pepper

Peel the potatoes and cut into equal chunks. Cook in salted water until tender.

Meanwhile, clean the kale and scallions, chop the scallions and remove the kale leaves from their stalk.

Bring a pot of water to boil and simmer the kale leaves for 5 minutes. Add the scallions, 2 tbsp of room temperature butter and the kale leaves to a food processor. Process until smooth with small chunks.

Mash the boiled potatoes with the remaining butter. Mash in the blended greens and season to taste. Serve warm with sausages.
