This is a nice way to serve kale or chard. It is a good way to ease into serving greens, and mixing it into mashed taters is a comforting way to do it. It has a nice flavor and is really easy! Its pretty versatile too. You can do it with kale, chard, or cabbage. You can also sub chives for the green onions. You can lighten it up by using stock instead of milk or cream, or even do half stock and half milk.
5-6 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 bunch chard or kale, washed, dried well, de-stemmed, and chopped
