This roasted kale and potato skillet is so good, I could eat half of a skillet in one sitting! Potatoes and kale are a match made in heaven. Both are earthy, rustic, and the perfect backdrop for salt, extra-virgin olive oil, garlic and onions. Pack all of these ingredients into a 12″ cast iron skillet and after roughly an hour, magic happens in the oven.

This recipe is just one that I made up along the way, and many variations could be made. Sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts would also work well in a layered vegetable roast.
