3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
1 tablespoon olive oil

Steam kale until tender. Remove kale with a slotted spoon, reserving cooking liquid. Chop kale and set aside.

About

I really enjoyed this recipe from myrecipes.com. The kale is a nice addition. It adds color and a terrific nutrition boost. I left the skins on the potato to add additional color, and I love the savory flavor of sage.
