This easy side dish highlights the bounty of the farmer's market in summer.


  • 1 ½ pounds small Yukon Gold potatoes, halved

  • Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 8 ounces kale, stems removed and leaves torn into 2-inch pieces

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 clove garlic, thinly sliced

  • Pinch red pepper flakes


  1. Bring potatoes to a boil in a medium saucepan of well-salted water. Reduce heat and simmer until tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in kale and cook until wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Drain.

  2. Heat oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add potatoes and kale. Cook, stirring, until potatoes are golden brown, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and red pepper flakes and cook about 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper; serve warm or at room temperature.
