#Greenslove couldn’t have come at a better time. I’m still feeling the remnants of #chocolatelove as I sit here eating the last piece of chocolate, really. I’m only eating healthy greens for the entire month, I’m going to try, really.
I recently had a dinner party and wanted to make an appetizer that would allow me to use a array of ingredients that would satisfy everyones palate. I also wanted it to be something simple to make and healthy for you. I made two flavors of baked wontons but one stood out… Kale & Feta.
Kale & Feta Wontons
1 Bunch of Kale, cleaned and chopped (2 cups)
1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled (I used tomato & basil flavored feta)
1/2 cup cottage cheese
2 garlic cloves, minced
dash salt (to taste)
dash of pepper (to taste)
14 wonton wrappers
1/4 cup olive oil
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly grease a baking sheet, set aside until ready to use.
Rinse and dry the kale. Cut the kale away from the vein of the stem and chop into strips. Place kale in a saucepan, add minced garlic, salt and pepper and sauté for five minutes or until leaves are tender. Set aside and allow to cool for 10 minutes. Add feta cheese, cottage cheese and mix until all ingredients are incorporated.
Taking a wonton wrapper, lay flat on work surface, scoop a teaspoonful of kale & feta mixture into the center of your wonton wrapper, folding over the top, then the bottom, followed by the sides. Brush lightly with olive oil to seal closed. Place on the baking sheet, allowing 2 inches between each wonton, bake for 10 minutes. Plate and serve.
