Ingredients

  • 2 cups finely chopped potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil or canola oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 4 cups loosely packed coarsely chopped kale
  • 1/8 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Vegetable oil spray, as needed

Instructions

  1. Add the potatoes to a large saucepan of boiling water. Cook until tender, about 30 minutes.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and sauté until golden brown. Add the kale and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl.
  3. Drain the cooked potatoes and transfer them to a medium bowl. Add the milk, salt, and pepper and mash with a fork or potato masher. Transfer the potatoes to the large bowl and combine with the cooked kale. Preheat the air fryer to 390°F for 5 minutes.
  4. Roll the potato and kale mixture into 1-inch nuggets. Spritz the air fryer basket with vegetable oil. Place the nuggets in the air fryer and cook for 12 to 15 minutes, until golden brown, shaking at 6 minutes.

Recipe Notes

No-Oil Option: Omit the olive oil.
