This meal features a trio of our favorite gourmet ingredients: gorgeous purple potatoes (which we're mashing with olive oil for luscious texture), oyster mushrooms (known for their especially meaty flavor) and fresh sage. The potatoes and mushrooms make for hearty accompaniments to pan-seared chicken, while the sage adds its woodsy flavor to a rich pan sauce, also made with butter and a bit of sherry vinegar.

Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Heat a medium pot of salted water to boiling on high. Medium dice the potatoes. Cut the mushrooms into bite-sized pieces. Remove and discard the kale stems; roughly chop the leaves. Peel and roughly chop the garlic. Pick the sage leaves off the stems; discard the stems and finely chop the leaves. Roughly chop the almonds.

Cook & mash the potatoes:
2 Cook & mash the potatoes:

Add the potatoes to the pot of boiling water. Cook 12 to 14 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Stir in 1 tablespoon of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Using a fork, mash to your desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper to taste and set aside in a warm place.

Cook the mushrooms & kale:
3 Cook the mushrooms & kale:

While the potatoes cook, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned and slightly softened. Add the kale and garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until the garlic is fragrant and the kale is slightly wilted. Add 1/2 cup of water and cook, stirring occasionally, 5 to 6 minutes, or until the kale has wilted and the water has cooked off. Transfer to a bowl and season with salt and pepper to taste; set aside in a warm place. Wipe out the pan.
