Latkes & Greens

I created this tonight for my family. We were swimming in potatoes and I steamed a bunch of purple ones last night in a hunch I'd want them tonight. I also pulled out my last bunch of kale from the freezer from last summer's CSA. This was born!

6 potatoes, peeled & steamed

1 medium onion, sliced
1/4 C milk
2 eggs
1/4 C flour
1/2 C cheese, shredded
4-6 cloves garlic, chopped
salt & pepper, to taste

2-4 T butter
oil for frying

1 bunch of kale, steamed gently until bright green
1 small onion, sliced
3 cloves garlic, chopped
2-4 T tamari (or soy sauce, bragg's, etc)
1/3 C adzuki beans, boiled until soft (about 40 minutes)
1/4 C water/broth
2 T butter

Heat oven to 275. Mash potatoes, milk and butter. Melt 1T butter in skillet, Saute onions until golden. Add cheese, onions, garlic, flour, eggs, salt and pepper to potatoes and mix thoroughly. Heat oil in large skillet, then drop large mounds of potato mixture into skillet and cook about 5 minutes on each side, until golden brown. Place on baking sheet in oven until all are cooked up. Once latkes are done and in the oven, heat butter over medium heat in skillet and toss in onions and garlic. Saute for 3 minutes, add kale and mix thoroughly. Add water/broth and beans, and cook for 5 minutes. Toss with Tamari. Serve latkes hot from the oven with sour cream in a bed of kale & adzuki beans, sprinkle with pepper.
