Recipe details

  • I first made this recipe over Pesach when potatoes become the main carbohydrate and I was experimenting with Jersey Royals potatoes which are in season.
  • Kale or carvel nero are equally good with this recipe but not spinach as wilts to nothing and looses its shape.
  • Preparation Time:15 minutes
  • Cooking Time:30 minutes
  •   Serves:  6 people
