A square, white, ceramic serving dish is nearly overflowing with red-skinned mashed potatoes and kale, on a brown striped wood table with folded light blue and white cloth napkins, and serving platters of chicken with carrots and roasted green beans in the background.

When the weather gets chilly, warm up with these kale mashed potatoes. The mix of greens and hearty roots will become a staple in your home.




  1. Place potatoes in a large stock pot and cover with water, adding a little salt on top. Bring water to a boil and cook for about 20-25 minutes, until fork tender.
  2. Heat coconut oil in a large frying pan over medium heat and add the chopped onion, cooking until softened and transparent, approximately 4-5 minutes. Add the kale, cooking until the leaves have wilted, approximately 3-4 minutes. Set aside.
  3. When the potatoes are tender, drain the liquid and add the olive oil and 3/4 cup of the milk. Mash well.
  4. Add the grated cheese and continue mashing. Add more milk and continue mashing until you reach the consistency you like. Fold in the cooked kale and onion mixture.
  5. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with more Pecorino, if desired.
