Colcannon

4 potatoes
1 bunch kale
fat free soymilk

Peel potatoes and cut into chunks. Cook in water until soft. Drain. Mash, using the soymilk.

While the potatoes are cooking, remove the tough center stem of the kale. Rinse and then chop into small pieces. Cook in a little water until soft and wilted. Drain.

Stir the kale into the mashed potatoes.

I season these with a little salt and pepper.



Serve with White Beans & Carrots for a satisfying meal:

16 oz cut peeled carrots
1 can white beans, any kind, drained and rinsed
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp dried rosemary

Cook the carrots until tender in a little water. Drain lightly. Stir in everything else.

I love simple, fast recipes with whole ingredients so this entry is right up my alley! My favorite meal right now is to broil a piece of fish (orange roughy is the best) and put sliced fresh tomatoes on the broiler pan with the fish - drizzle in oil and sprinkle with parmesan. The fish is done by the time the parm is slightly brown and I have dinner ready in ten minutes. I plate it on a bed of spinach... beautiful and sooo yummy!


**NOTE TO MY FRIENDS**
Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
