Fresh From the Field-
All Manner of Deliciousness
Peppers: Bells and Shishitos
Parsley (Curly and Flat Leaf!)
Recipe: Potato, Kale, and White Bean Hash
From: This Mess Is Ours
Adapted from Heidi Swanson's Super Natural Every Day
Note from Helen: I would add some bell peppers because of their delicious quotient.
1 large russet potato, scrubbed and cut into a very small dice
2 Tbsp. Earth Balance, Olive oil, or Ghee
¼ cup white onion, thinly sliced
1 can white beans, drained and rinsed *I used Great Northern beans
2.5 - 3 cups of Lacinato Kale *AKA:Dino Kale, sliced into thin ribbons
1 lemon, zested
¼ cup Parmesan cheese, shredded *Omit if vegan
Kosher salt and black pepper to taste
Crushed red pepper flakes to taste
Melt the Earth Balance in a heavy bottomed skillet over medium-high heat. Add the potatoes and a generous pinch of Kosher salt, toss well to coat. Cover the skillet with a tight fitting lid and cook for 7-9 minutes, tossing or flipping occasionally to ensure that all sides of the potatoes are browning and getting crisp.
Add the onions and the white beans to the skillet with the potatoes, mix well and gently arrange the beans and onions into a single layer in the pan. Leave to cook for 3-5 minutes, flipping once or twice, to ensure that the beans are browning and getting crisp.
Add the ribbons of kale and cook briefly until the kale wilts slightly. Remove from the heat and sprinkle in lemon zest, black pepper, red pepper flakes, and additional salt to taste. Serve immediately.
