Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place kale in a large microwave-safe bowl, cover and microwave until wilted, about 3 minutes. Drain, cool slightly, and finely chop.

    Advertisement
  • Meanwhile, mix horseradish, shallot, pepper and salt in a large bowl. Add the chopped kale and potatoes; stir to combine.

  • Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the kale mixture, spread into an even layer and cook, stirring every 3 to 4 minutes and returning the mixture to an even layer, until the potatoes begin to turn golden brown and crisp, 12 to 15 minutes total.

Tips

Tip: A 1- to 1 1/2-pound bunch of kale yields 16 to 24 cups of chopped leaves. When preparing kale for these recipes, remove the tough ribs, chop or tear the kale as directed, then wash it--allowing some water to cling to the leaves. The moisture helps steam the kale during the first stages of cooking.

Ingredient Note: Fresh, partially cooked, shredded potatoes for hash browns can be found in the refrigerated produce section and sometimes in the dairy section of most supermarkets. Alternatively, boil potatoes until they can just be pierced with a fork but are not completely tender. Let cool slightly, then shred.

this was really good especially with the right type of horseradish. anyway i ended up over cooking the potatoes so they didn't shred well more like mashed but i used anyway and it turned out just fine. for re-heating i put in the oven rather than the microwave to keep the potatoes crisp. very healthy and nice flavor.

Made this for dinner last night. We ate all of it and will make it again. I used dehydrated potatoes and since I didn't have any shallot used dehydrated onion with a touch of granulated garlic. The horseradish is an excellent addition because it adds an extra layer of flavor. I used a paper towel to press the extra water out of the kale prior to adding the potatoes and I reduced the salt because the potatoes had some in them already. Very good and easy! Read More

healthy and delicious Have made this a number of times. To healthy it up used sweet potatoes instead of white...cubed instead of shredded and added twice the horseradish. I roast the sweet potatoes under the broiler so they are browned toasted and done. Saute shallot in skillet until soft add sweet potatoes fresh kale (don't micro because it gets soggy) & horseradish and cook until kale is still somewhat crispy but cooked. We love this recipe & super healthy!!! Read More

failed miserably This was a mess for me. I had to use way more than 3 tbsp oil to keep from sticking even on med heat. The kale was overcooked to the point of being inedible before the potatoes were anywhere near being browned. The potatoes never did brown and I took it off because the kale was starting to burn up. Ate some of it but it didn't have any flavor. Ended up throwing the whole thing out into the yard for the birds. I don't know why my results were so different from others who had success with it. Pros: easy to put together only a few ingredients Cons: doesn't cook evenly Read More

Won Over a Greens Hater My husband took just one bite of this delicious hash and asked Is there more? Unfortunately I had halved the recipe. (I found that the kale wilted in just two minutes in my low-wattage microwave and the hash browned in just 9 minutes in a medium skillet.) Next time I'll make the full recipe for the two of us. Pros: Delicious Quick Easy Cons: Servings Too Stingy Read More

SO satisfying I must say my boyfriend and I were very skeptical about this. He doesn't love kale and I wasn't sure if this would be a good side dish for dinner. But I can say this dish is good anytime of day. We both absolutely fell in love with this and couldn't stop eating. He actually forgot about the meat on his plate and devoured this. It's very flavorful filling satisfying and you feel good about eating kale. I made it exactly as the recipe says. Pros: Flavorful filling Read More

Healthy and delicious! This is very delicious and nutritious but I think next time I might add the kale halfway through the frying process so it doesn't get overcooked. Or maybe add it raw? Pros: easy healthy yummy Cons: kale maybe gets overcooked Read More

My husband and I loved it! I only used one tablespoon of the horseradish because my husband doesn't like it...he does now. I used 2 small potatoes and they were browned in 14 minutes. He had seconds and I can't wait for my leftovers. Pros: Quick easy Read More

I used sweet potato instead of regular potatoes and it was a great switch! The sweetness really was a good pairing with the kale. I also didn't have horseradish and instead I used garlic and added some onion also. I think the addition of black beans would also be tasty. Read More

This was really tasty. It did take more like 20 minutes to brown the potatoes. I may try it again with garlic potatoes and/or use pre-washed spinach. Pros: Tastes good large serving healthy Cons: Took more time than expected (especially prepping the kale) Read More

Fantastic!!! This was super tasty and easy! What a great way to use up a potato and a bunch of kale. I'll be making it over and over again for sure! The only thing I'll do differently in the future is put everything EXCEPT the kale into the skillet and let it cook; I'll add the kale when the potatoes are mostly browned (it took too long for the potatoes to brown and the kale cooked too much with all of it together). Can't wait to eat the leftovers with breakfast tomorrow!!! Read More

Really great as a side with brunch or even just by itself. I substituted the horseradish for mustard and lemon/lime juice. Even my skeptical brunch guests (who have never tried kale) liked it. Read More

Get your greens in a tasty way!! This recipe is marvelous!!! The recipe didn't specify if the horseradish was minced horseradish root or prepared horesradish sauce....I used the root and made a full order. My hubby and I split it and he said that next time he wants me to double it and that he loves it. This from a man who sometimes tries a recipe and says "It is ok but I don't want it again!" We had it for supper with fried eggs. In my book of five star recipes!!! Pros: Easy to prepare and marvelous tasting Cons: none that I found Read More

My new favorite kale dish! My husband is pretty neutral on kale-he can take it or leave it. This recipe he declared "a keeper " which is no small feat for a kale dish. I didn't make any changes to the recipe however I did opt to parboil my own potatoes. Sorry but I can't in good conscience spend money on pre-shredded potatoes. I am the same person who side eyes the person buying those pre-chopped onions. Are we really that lazy as a society? Oh right. Off soapbox back to recipe. I served it with steak (great pairing!) then ate leftovers with an over easy egg and I was in heaven. This will be in the regular rotation! Pros: Easy delicious Read More
