smashed potatoes with kale

(potatoes, kale)

may i share a "recipe" with you? we have been eating lots of smashed potatoes lately, and by that i mean:

take some potatoes
boil them til tender
line them up on a greased baking sheet
smash them, somewhat, with a potato masher, but leave them kind of together, you know?
sprinkle them with any of the following: sea salt, pepper, chopped garlic, smoked paprika, fresh chopped herbs, etc.
and drizzle olive oil over the top
bake at around 450 degrees for about 25 minutes.

they are so delicious, all crispy and browned on the top. in this case, to up the healthy factor, i stir-fried some kale with garlic and topped it with the smashed potatoes. if you're in an un-vegan frame of mind, top this with an over-easy fried egg. if you're m, smother the whole thing in ketchup.
