Potato and Kale Patties


  • 500g potatoes
  • 250g kale
  • 2 teaspoon thyme leaves, picked
  • 2 egg yolks
  • salt
  • pepper
  • grated nutmeg for seasoning
  • flour, for dusting
  • 3 tablespoon vegetable oil


Peel the potatoes and then cut them into evenly sized pieces. Put them into a saucepan, cover with cold water, season with salt and bring to a gentle simmer. Cook for 10 minutes until the potatoes are tender.

Wash the kale in plenty of cold water, then boil in a little salted water for 7/8 minutes till tender. Refresh under cold water. Squeeze the kale until it is dry then chop roughly.

Drain the potatoes and return to the saucepan to dry out for a few minutes.

Mash the potatoes with a hand masher and season with salt, pepper and nutmeg to your tasting.

Add the chopped kale to the potatoes and reheat.

Add the egg yolks and mix thoroughly.

Dust a work surface with the flour and tip the potatoes onto the table. Knead gently and roll the potato into a thick sausage shape. Cut the potato into even sized discs and with the help of a spatula form the potato into patties.

Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium high heat, add the vegetable oil then add the patties. Leave to fry until edges start to turn golden brown then turn over till other side is browned.
