‘Big Bowl’ Potato, Bean And Kale Lover’s Recipe

I wanted to share my most favorite but nutritious recipe. As you know, I love beans and potatoes. And, if you do, you surely will love this one. On any of my recipes you can substitute different vegetables or add more.

‘My intuition was subtly nagging me to eat kale (although, I use it daily in our green smoothie) over the last month. Finally, I made a meal of it with beans and potatoes. And, soon after I felt really good! So, learn to listen to your gut feeling and what it is trying to tell you about what you are ‘missing’ in your diet. It’s that subtle inner voice that’s kind of quiet, trying to give you a ‘ hint’. It has to be separated from all the mental chatter so you can hear it when it speaks’ ~ your author

For example, this recipe uses boiled kale. If you don’t like kale, you can substitute spinach, broccoli, squash or anything else you happen to like better. Although, kale is the most nutritious choice.

‘Kale is rich in, calcium, potassium, and has a good amount of fiber to help keep your bowel movements regular. Kale contains antioxidants that help prevent cell damage and may also help protect against cancer [1 medlineplus.gov/ency/patientinstructions/000729.htm]’.

My Most Nutritious Satisfying Recipe Is Made With Potatoes, Beans and Kale…

  •  Boil two or three medium size white russet potatoes for about an hour
  •  In a fry pan sauté half an onion and cup of mushrooms for about five minutes and let set until potatoes are done
  •  After about 45 minutes check potatoes with knife for softness
  •  A trick I learned was to cut skins vertical and horizontal around potatoes so they are more easily peeled after cooked. Then, peel under cold water. Don’t let peels go down the drain or you’ll have a plumbing stoppage!
  •  Boil kale until tender (or, steam.) Usually takes about five to ten minutes
  •  When done rinse off in colander and set aside
  •  You will already have your beans made or you can use canned and heat them up in the microwave
  •  When potatoes are done, peel them and put them in a ‘big bowl’
  •  Pour kale, onions, beans and mushrooms over
  •  Either salt and pepper or you can pour salsa or green enchilada sauce on top
