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
