However, this kale potato mash with chickpeas and feta left me asking one question…

How the heck have I never added Dijon mustard to mashed potatoes before now?

I mean really! The two practically go hand in hand. The potatoes are so creamy and tangy with that hint of warmth and spice that Dijon mustard can bring to your palette. The flavor is subtle and adds an extra dimension to ordinary mashed potatoes.

It always makes me happy when I can get David to eat healthy, especially when it comes to kale. Sometimes I wonder if he’s just really being hard to get along with because I have used kale in many dishes and he eats them and doesn’t complain until after he’s eaten at least two helpings.

What I like most about this recipe is that you can bring new life to leftover mashed potatoes! This quick and easy recipe gets is even easier if you use leftover mashed potatoes because the potatoes are already made. All you have to do is warm the leftover mashed potatoes up and stir in the Dijon mustard. If the leftover potatoes are a little stiff, add a little milk to help break them down a little bit, being careful not to overmix. Once the mashed potatoes are nice and soft again, embellish them with the delicious chickpeas, sweet red onion, and kale. Then top with crumbled feta cheese.

Voila! Just like that, you’ll have a quick and easy meal reinvented from simple leftover mashed potatoes.

Notes

This recipe is perfect for leftover mashed potatoes. Just reheat the leftover mashed potatoes and stir in the Dijon mustard and about 2 tablespoons of the milk at a time until they loosen up, as needed.
Season with moderation. Remember the feta cheese can be salty, so go easy on the salt.
