Curried Scalloped Potato & Kale // Easy Vegan ‘Butter’

Curried Scalloped Potato with Kale

I could say this dish is pretty-tasty, but its actually very ugly-delicious, and although

Isn’t very photogenic, its a “go back for more” dish, for sure.

It started with a worthy recipe on the internet, but I made it 3 times in short order and tweaked it to perfection—I had lots of kale to use & lots of people to feed.

Its exceptionally tasty with sweet potatoes, but good with just regular potatoes too.

REGULAR POTATOES, and equal amount of
SWEET POTATOES (not yams—which are orange)
set them aside

in the hot pan, add LOTS OF CHOPPED KALE to the onions and simmer till kale wilts
(this part will taste rather bitter and not too pleasant, if its done right)

-layer on ½ the onion/kale mixture
-another thin layer of potatoes, and SHREDDED CARROTS, lightly sprinkled with toasted cumin seed & toasted almonds, salt and lightly drizzled with: MANGO or TAMARIND CHUTNEY
