Curried Potato Kale Galette

I’ve posted this recipe before back in the infancy of this blog. I am reblogging it here with pictures and better comments and formatting. Also, I think it’s a good enough recipe that it deserves a bump up.

Recipe type: Main or Side Dish
Serves: 4-6
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • 8 cups kale, removed from stems and chopped
  • 4 potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup vegan margarine, melted
  1. Heat oil in a large non-stick oven proof skillet over medium heat. (I used my cast iron skillet.)
  2. Add onion, garlic, ginger and spices. Saute until onion is softened.
  3. Add kale and saute until just wilted, about 5 minutes. Transfer to bowl.
  4. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  5. Arrange ⅓ of the thinly sliced potato on the bottom of the skillet, overlapping so that none of the skillet is showing through.
  6. Spread ½ of the kale mixture over top.
  7. Arrange the next ⅓ of the potato over the kale mixture, making sure to overlap again.
  8. Spread the remaining kale mixture and top with the last batch of thinly sliced potato.
  9. Press down until nice and compact.
  10. Pour melted margarine over top.
  11. Bake in pre-heated oven for 45 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
  12. Cut galette into wedges and serve.

    I made this last night as a main dish. It alone was absolutely delicious! I paired it with red cabbage sautéed in homemade thai sweet chili sauce and salad with peanut hoisin dressing. We will be making this again very soon!

      Your red cabbage side dish sounds amazing Ashley! I love cabbage and often times forget about simply sautéeing it for a change. I’m glad you like the potato kale galette. I love how crispy the potatoes get. Mmmm.

      I hope your wife likes it too Mike. Love the idea of adding mushrooms and onions. I’m totally stealing that idea for next time. :)

    I made this last night. It was FANTASTIC. My only complaint was that it was so good, we ate it all and there were no leftovers! Next time I’m doubling the recipe.

    I made this last night for dinner. Let me tell you what a pleasure it was to watch my 6 and 8 year olds forking large pieces of kale happily into their mouths. Every mother’s dream come true.
