1 pound kale, spinach, cabbage or chard
2 cloves garlic, smashed and chopped
1 sweet onion, chopped
2 Tablespoons olive oil
3 pounds potatoes, boiled
3/4 cup milk, soymilk or veggie broth
salt and pepper
1 Tablespoon butter or margarine (optional)

Tear or cut cleaned green veggie into bite-size
pieces. Sauté onion in olive oil until soft and
translucent, add garlic and greens, stirring
well to coat with oil. Cook until tender, stirring
occasionally. Stir milk or broth into
greens and heat until it simmers (small bubbles
on the edge), then add potatoes, mashing
them into the veggies and liquid in the pan.
Turn heat to low and mash potato mixture
until it as smooth as you want, taste for seasoning
and add salt and pepper to taste. Serve
mounded in a bowl with a pat of butter on
top, if you like. Serves 6-8 easily as a side
dish, but it makes a great main course too!
