Check out these "eggs in a nest" baby potatoes from Hank. Perfect for spring! ~Elise
I made this dish up on a whim. Elise and I were at the market and I saw some pretty Lacinato kale and gorgeous multi-colored baby potatoes. I knew I had to combine them somehow, and I liked the idea of "eggs in a nest," especially around Easter.
Lacinato, also known as cavolo nero or dinosaur kale, is pretty much the darkest green vegetable I know of. It is more tender than regular kale, and its leaves are deeply savoyed-crinkled, like savoy cabbage, which is lacinato kale's cousin. Don't use regular kale as a substitute, if you can't find lacinato kale. Use chard instead.
I cook the potatoes in stock here, which looks wasteful but it's not: You can reuse the potato-enriched stock in another recipe. It is great as a base for polenta or rice.Dinosaur Kale with Baby Potatoes Recipe
