Cooking Light NOVEMBER 1999

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 2 patties)

Ingredients

  • 12 cups water
  • 1 bunch kale, trimmed (about 4 ounces)
  • 2 2/3 cups (1-inch) cubed Yukon gold or red potato (about 1 pound)
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter or stick margarine
  • 3 cups diced onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh sage
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Cooking spray
  • Sage sprigs (optional)

Preparation

Bring water to a boil in a Dutch oven; add kale. Cover and cook over medium heat 5 minutes or until tender. Remove kale with a slotted spoon, reserving cooking liquid. Chop kale and set aside.

Add potato to reserved cooking liquid in pan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes or until tender. Drain; partially mash potatoes. Stir in kale and 1/4 teaspoon salt.

Preheat oven to 400°.

Heat oil and butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt, diced onion, and chopped sage. Cook 13 minutes or until browned. Combine potato mixture, onion mixture, green onions, and pepper. Remove from heat; cool slightly. Divide potato mixture into 8 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/2-inch-thick patty. Place patties on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 20 minutes.

Preheat broiler.

Broil patties for 5 minutes or until browned. Garnish with sage sprigs, if desired.
