Super Green Potatoes!

I've long had a concern that our Son Ife has not been getting enough green vegetables in his diet. He often says, "I don't want to eat it" whenever I try to feed his kale or collard greens. However, he LUVS potatoes! And just the other day I found a way to 'sneak' this health vegetable into his breakfast. It's what inspired me to come up with this recipe:
8 regular sized red potatoes. Rinsed and cut into quarters
1 medium sized onion, diced
2 leaves of fresh organic lacinato kale, diced
1/4 tsp of cumin seeds
2 tbsp of virgin coconut oil or olive oil
2 garlic cloves, diced
1/4 cup of water.
1,2 tsp of realsalt
1/2 tsp of dulse flakes
1/4 tsp of garlic powder
1 tsp of nutritional yeast flakes
Put oil into pan to heat. Add cumin seeds. When it pops add garlic, then onions and the potatoes. While potatoes are cooking, place greens in a blender with water and blend until fine. When potatoes are finished cooking add 'green water' and simmer. Mix in remaining spices and serve!

At first Ife didn't want to touch it. A moment later, he reconsidered and said he wanted it with avacado. I mixed in avacado and he ate three bowls. "Yumm! "he declared.

  1. Good for you nephew. Sorry you are unfairly pressured to eat too much veggies. Come see your Uncle if you want a nice T-Bone. We can get some steak fries to go along with it.
