Kale and Potatoes

kale and potatoesThe Dinosaur Kale in this week’s box was so fresh and green, I wanted to cook it right away. Kale and potatoes is a classic combination. This recipe from Simply Recipes looked pretty good, but I like my potatoes a little fried rather than just boiled. I also wanted to use some of the red onion from the box. So, here is what I came up with.

Kale and Potatoes
