  • 3 pounds golden potatoes, peeled and diced
  • sea salt
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil or butter
  • 4 cups cabbage and kale, chopped
  • 6 green onions, diced
  • 1 cup cream or milk
  1. Place potatoes in a large stockpot. Cover with water, and sprinkle with a pinch of salt. Heat and bring to a boil. Simmer for 15-20 minutes or until potatoes are tender and easily mash with a fork. Drain the potatoes and set aside.
  2. Add the oil or butter to the stockpot and heat over medium-high heat. Add the chopped cabbage and/or kale and sprinkle with salt. Sauté the cabbage for 3 minutes or until wilted.
