Kale Bites

Kale is my go-to green. Its packed with nutrition and doesn’t go soggy when you mix it in a salad. The kids are lesser fans. On our last visit to Quidee’s home however, they happily ate these bites without a single scrunched up nose, and so did all the adults!

These bites taste great and you can serve them as an appetizer, a side, or mixed in a sauce. You could also keep some ready in the freezer to have on hand for a healthy snack or part of a quick meal.kale-peas-bites

We made these about golf ball sized but you can roll them a little smaller if you prefer.
