Mashed Potatoes with Kale and Quinoa

Mashed Potatoes with Kale and Quinoa

I saw this post the other day, from I Eat Grains, and it piqued my interest. There wasn’t a recipe or anything, Rachel was just sharing a meal she had, specifically mashed potatoes with quinoa mixed in.

It sounded good, but of course I had to make it my own, so I did what any self-respecting vegan would do and I added kale. Tada!

Seriously, this hardly counts as a recipe… it’s so easy!

Mashed Potatoes with Kale and Quinoa

Write a review
  1. 1 bunch kale, cleaned, destemmed and chopped
  2. 1 t diced garlic
  3. pinch of sea salt
  4. 3-4 medium russet potatoes, peeled, cubed and boiled until tender
  5. 1/3 cup of your favorite non-dairy milk
  6. 3 tablespoons Earth Balance
  7. 1+ teaspoon salt (plus more to taste... possibly A LOT more if you're anything like me!) and pepper
  8. 2 cups red quinoa, cooked
  1. Water saute the kale with the garlic and pinch of sea salt for 3-5 minutes, until tender.
  2. In the meantime, mash your potatoes in a large bowl, and mix in milk, EB and salt. Taste test, and add more salt if you'd like.
  3. Mix in the quinoa and kale, then check seasoning again.
  1. This makes 4 BIG sides!

    I like the red quinoa against the potatoes and anything is better with kale.
