Herbed Spinach and Kale Balls

Olive oil cooking spray

8 oz finely chopped spinach

1/2 c. finely chopped onion

2 1/2 T plus 1/2 t. olive oil

1 large egg beaten

8 oz finely chopped kale

1/2 c. seasoned bread crumbs

1/4 c. finely grated parmesan cheese

1/4 t. each salt, garlic, thyme, sage, rosemary, oregano

Pinch of pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray or line with parchment paper. Blanch spinach and kale for a few minutes to soften. Drain and squeeze to remove excess water. Combine spinach, onion, olive oil, and egg together in a large bowl. Add kale, bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, sea salt, garlic powder, thyme, sage, rosemary, oregano, and black pepper; mix thoroughly using your hands.

Form mixture into 1 1/2-inch balls and arrange on the prepared baking sheet.

Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes; flip and continue baking until lightly browned, 10 to 20 more minutes.
