Red Potatoes with Greens Recipe

What You'll Need


4 red potatoes

1 bunch in-season greens (kale, swiss chard, collards etc)

½ tsp black pepper

1 onion, thinly sliced

½ tsp paprika

2 garlic cloves, minced

2 tsp reduced-sodium soy sauce

Water or low-sodium vegetable broth for sautéing


How to Make It


1 Scrub the potatoes and cut into 1/2 inch cubes or wedges. Steam over boiling water until just tender (around 15 minutes) when pierced with a fork. Rinse with cold water then drain and set aside.

2 Rinse the greens then remove any tough stems. Cut or tear the leaves into small pieces.

3 Heat water or broth in a large skillet and add the onion and garlic. Sauté until soft.

4 Add the cooked potatoes, pepper, and paprika. Use a spatula to turn the mixture gently and mix all the ingredients.

5 Spread the greens over the top of the potato mixture. Sprinkle with soy sauce. Cover and cook, turning occasionally, until tender.
