Ok, so maybe not technically Irish…but potatoes and kale are fairly Irish, right? So here’s a stew that you can serve at a St Patty’s Day celebration (or any other celebration of Celtic origin, or any other time for that matter)! This recipe makes quite a bit, I’d say about 6 servings…so it would be great for leftover lunches! You could also add about 1 C white beans to stretch it even further, if you like 🙂
4 C broth
3-4 C water
1 TBSP canola oil
3 large golden potatoes, diced
10-15 small red potatoes, halved
2-3 green onions, finely chopped
1 bay leaf
2 tsp thyme
salt and pepper to taste
2 large carrots, peeled and largely chopped
2-3 large leaves kale (or spinach), prepped and chopped
1. Warm canola oil over medium heat in a large stock pot. Add potatoes and green onions. Sauté about 8 minutes. Add liquid, salt, pepper, bay leaf and thyme. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 15 minutes.
2. Add carrots and kale, and continue to simmer for another 5 minutes. Adjust salt and pepper to taste, and serve!
