Kale and Potato Cakes







I'm not a huge potato fan but this recipe from Canadian Living
popped out to me.

Kale is in my garden but I had to buy a box to make this and now I know I'll be planting more .


Ingredients:

3 1/2 cups yellow-fleshed potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 inch cubes 

4 cloves smashed garlic

4 cups finely chopped kale

1/2 cup panko

1 egg

1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

2 green onions- sliced

1 tablespoon dijon mustard

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

2 tablespoon  canola oil


Directions:

 In large pot of boiling water, cook potatoes and garlic, adding kale during last 3 minutes of cooking, until potatoes are tender, 10 to 12 minutes.

Drain and return to pot over low heat for about 2 minutes, shaking pan occasionally  until dry.

Using potato masher, mash gently until almost smooth with a few small chunks remaining. Stir in panko, mozzarella cheese, egg, green onions, mustard, salt and pepper.


In large nonstick skillet, heat half of the oil over medium heat. Using 1/3 cup for each cake, drop half of the potato mixture into pan, pressing to make 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick rounds. Cook, turning once, until crisp and golden, about 6 minutes.

Repeat the process with the remaining oil and potato mixture.

  6. I did not use nearly enough of my kale this year because hubby didn't love it. I think he would like this. My mom use to make a potato cake. Adding the kale is a great idea! Thanks for sharing the recipe with SYC.
