Mashed Potatoes and Greens

Adding greens to mashed potatoes maximizes their nutritional value.









1 bunch of chard, green or red, roughly chopped
3-4 medium/large potatoes, cubed
6-8 oz. of non-fat or coconut yogurt
Soup stock or water


  1. Put potatoes in pan and cover with stock or water. Bring to a boil and turn down to simmer for 40 minutes or until potatoes are soft.
  2. Place chard on top of potatoes and simmer for 15 more minutes.
  3. Remove any remaining liquid and add 6-8 oz. of non-fat or coconut yogurt.
  4. Mash together. Add more yogurt or soup stock if the mixture is too dry.

Serving size: 4

Variations: The same recipe can be used with kale or collard greens. When using these greens, remove the central stems by stripping the leaves before shredding them.

Chris’ Note: After the potatoes are drained but before they are returned to the pot, use some stock or a tiny bit of oil or butter to sauté a minced clove or two of garlic then blend in with the potatoes and greens.
