Ingredients

4 medium sized potatoes, peeled and cut into medium chunks
Unsweetened soya or other plant milk of choice
3 tbsp vegan margarine OR olive oil OR melted coconut oil (use a mild one, eg Biona Cuisine) OR a mixture of margarine and olive oil
Salt for cooking the potatoes and extra salt for the mash if necessary
Black pepper to taste, freshly ground
1 clove chopped or crushed garlic OR ½ tsp garlic powder
110g/3 cups washed kale OR dark green cabbage/spring greens- finely diced (and tightly packed if using cups)

Optional
Spring onions, diced small
Vegan bacon, small pieces fried up until crispy OR small cubes of smoked tofu fried up until crispy

Instructions

1. Place the potato pieces in a medium-large pan of salted water and bring it to the boil.
2. Turn heat down to a medium boil and cook potatoes until tender – test with a sharp knife.
3. Drain and return potatoes to the cooking pot.
4. While the potatoes are cooking, fry up the kale and vegan bacon in a frying pan to tenderise the greens and crisp up the bacon alternative.
