Potatoes with Swiss Chard, Kale, and Zucchini.

Today I decided to walk home for lunch and cook a meal that I could prepare and enjoy in less than an hour. A lovely side dish or main entree, this dish is comprised of potatoes, red onions, kale, Swiss chard, and zucchini. Prepared in under 30 minutes, you can add a meat to the dish to round it out or keep it vegetarian. Either way, it’s savory and satisfying.

First step is to cook the potatoes with a little bit of olive oil and seasoning. I used a garlic mix, seasoned salt, and Cavenders.

For extra flavor, I added some chopped red onions as well as cumin and coriander. The potatoes continued to saute in a covered pan while I washed and prepped the rest of the ingredients. Overall cook time for the potatoes is approximately 20 minutes.

About 10 minutes into the cooking process, I added some sliced and peeled zucchini.

I wanted to provide some more greens in an otherwise starchy meal. About 15 minutes into the cooking process, I added some Swiss chard.

Then I also added some kale that had been in the fridge too long. Both greens provide protein and nutrients, as well as a nice flavor balance.


Adding just a touch of water to the pan and covered it to allow the greens to wilt a bit. This completed the entire meal in about 30 minutes.

Total cook time, 20 min plus 10 min prep.

4 large potatoes
1/2 cup red onion
1 cup kale
2 cups Swiss chard
1 cup zucchini
2 tablespoons garlic mix
1 tablespoon seasoned salt
1 tablespoon cavender’s greek seasoning

Makes 4 servings.

  1. no way! the potatoes were scrubbed/peeled/cubed in 5 min, and the greens were worked on while those were cooking. you can do it — just don't have to do all the prep ahead of time.

  2. Hi, I happened on your recipe this morning by googling potato + zucchini + kale which are the ingredients I had in the frige this morning. Thanks for the yummy recipe! And, yes, definitely less than 30 minutes. Nicely done!
