  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 small Yukon Gold potatoes (diced)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 4 cloves garlic (finely minced)
  • 2-3 medium kale leaves (stems removed and finely chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  • In a medium skillet, preferably a cast-iron one, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.
  • Add the potatoes and salt, then mix to combine.
  • Cook, stirring often, until the potatoes get some color, about 8-10 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to low and cover the pan. Continue cooking for another 8-10 minutes until you can easily pierce the potatoes with a fork.
  • Add the garlic, kale, and water, then mix to combine. Cover the skillet and let everything cook for another 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the kale wilts.
  • Season to taste with pepper and serve hot.


This recipe is for 2 servings.
If you’d like to reduce the amount of fat in this recipe, use a nonstick pan and skip the olive oil or use cooking spray. You won’t get the nice brown bits on the potatoes, but they will still taste good.
Leftovers can be stored covered in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
