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.
