If you’re thinking this looks familiar, the Accidental Locavore has been revisiting this shepherd’s pie recipe for a contest. Comfort food gets sophisticated in this grown-up shepherd’s pie with kale and potatoes from the Greenmarket. I tossed together mashed potatoes, duck confit and kale, then topped with cheese for a decadent dinner. This will feed 4 people.
My verdict: Still a winner. The kale cuts some of the richness of the duck confit and adds a healthy green veg to make it a complete meal. If you don’t have a couple of duck legs confit lying around, a lot of gourmet markets carry them or you can order them from D’Artganan.
