The kale kick continues…

Fingerling Potatoes with Wilted Kale

  • 1 1/2 pounds fingerling or other small potatoes
  • 5-7 cups kale, torn or chopped into bite sized bits
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp caraway seeds
  • 1/2 tsp paprika

Cook potatoes in boiling water until fork tender, about 10-15 minutes depending on the size. Drain. Once cool enough to handle slice in half lengthwise. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Saute garlic until fragrant and tender, about a minute. Add mustard and caraway seeds. Cook for about a minute longer. Stir in paprika then add potatoes, tossing to coat. Add kale and allow to wilt, stirring often. This should take about five minutes. Serve warm.

    I served sauteed kale with my New Year’s day roasted duck … If I hadn’t had rice to go with it, these potato-kale combo would have rocked.

    I would not have thought to combine these spuds with kale. Sounds great. though. Thanks for the idea. How about a touch of bacon?

    Very nice use of kale. I’m not much of a caraway fan but I’m sure this would be lovely even without it.

  8. I’m firmly on the kale everything train and this looks absolutely lovely, bright, and colorful.

    I just found kale for 2 big bunches for $0.99 at my local bodega and am so excited to use lots and lots. I’ll probably make this tonight! Thanks for sharing.

    YUM. This looks amazing. I love everything about this combination!

  16. The kale looks delicious, especially since it’s not completely raw. That does not please me…blech. Raw kale. =(

  17. Hi Greg! This is a great idea, very simple, just the way I like 😉 And, yes John, bacon sounds a clever addition 🙂

  18. Healthy, delicious side. Not to mention gorgeous with the fingerling potatoes and kale! Both of which I have been getting a lot from my local CSA.
