Ingredients

  • 11 oz. kale (1 bunch), rinsed and finely chopped (about 8 cups)
  • 1 3/4 lb. red potatoes (4 medium), scrubbed and cut into 1 1/2-inch chunks
  • 6 oz. feta cheese, crumbled (about 1 cup)
  • 1 large or 2 small avocados, peeled and diced
  • 2 Tbs. balsamic vinegar

Preparation

Place kale in large, heavy pan. Arrange potato chunks on top of kale, and add 1 cup water. Cover, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and cook until kale is tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Check about halfway through; add a little water if necessary to keep vegetables from burning.

Using slotted spoon, transfer vegetables to serving bowl. Crumble feta over potatoes and kale. Top with avocado, sprinkle with balsamic vinegar and season with pepper. Serve.
