Ingredients

  • 1 lb Yukon Gold or white potatoes
  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 8 oz turkey kielbasa, cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 4 cups chopped, fresh kale
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper

Directions

  • Scrub potatoes with vegetable brush under cold running water. Peel and cut into ½-inch cubes. Set aside 1 cup of the potatoes to add in later.
  • Place remaining potatoes in a large saucepan and add cold water to cover. Over high heat, bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium.
  • Cover and simmer until potatoes are very tender, about 12 to 15 minutes. Drain potatoes and return to saucepan. Add broth and mash until smooth; set aside.
  • In a large saucepan, over medium-high heat, heat the oil. Add onion, garlic, and kielbasa. Cook, stirring occasionally until the onions are soft, about 5 to 6 minutes.
  • Stir in the potato and broth mixture and the remaining 1 cup diced potatoes. Heat to boiling and then reduce heat to medium and simmer uncovered for 10 minutes.
  • Stir in kale, cover and cook until tender for about 10 to 12 minutes. Stir in salt and pepper.
