I like to make spinach balls for snacks and something to eat on the go. This last week I took equal parts spinach, chopped kale (for vitamin k), collard greens and broccoli and mixed them with Parmesan and cheddar cheese eggs and bread crumbs. Formed this into small balls and baked them. They are very good bot warm and cold. Some times I like to dip them in blue cheese or ranch dressing. Even the dog likes them as he sneak to the dish and takes them when my back is turned.

I will surelly try it and, by the way it sounds, it seems that it is the kind of food I would adopt and find yummy!. I would think about holding it together with may a whole egg. What do you think?

Hello marguicha. Here is a recipe for the spinach balls. Just be sure to squeeze out as much liquid as possible or you will have soupy balls.

Hello edvc. I never thought of using spinach in a sandwich like lettuce. The next time I have some fresh spinach I'm going to try it in a sandwich.

That's pretty good when you can take all of those vegetables and turn them into something tasty. I never have gotten the liking for blue cheese. I don't know why.

The kids like them because they can eat them with their hands. A lot of gtimes I just eat the balls plain.

These sound great, except for the kale--I find it kind of bitter. But maybe if you only use a little the other veggies and cheese mask the taste? I think I will try some...thanks for sharing the idea and some recipes!

Hello Suzie. I don't find kale to e bitter. The original spinach ball recipe only called for spinach, bread crumbs, green onions and eggs. After making these a few times I decided to try adding other green leafy vegetables and carrots. I now make them with both kale and collard greens. Next time I make them I am going to add broccoli. I like creative ways with veggies.

Kale is not bitter except if you buy it when it is past its prime.

The dish sounds interesting i never tasted not heard about it. I like spinach only in one form that is with paneer. Which is also called "palak paneer" in our country.
