#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.

I love this recipe. It’s another unique way to serve veggies to my family. It looks so versatile. AND I ALWAYS have wontons in the freezer. Glad to bloghop with you on this greenslove event, Georgie!
This looks lovely! I don’t know why I’ve never baked wontons before – I’ve only used them to make ravioli. Can’t wait to try this out!
Oh wow – I just bought a big bag of kale, too. These look so much better than the frozen ones I usually buy!
I am becoming a kale lover! I love that these are baked.

Oooh..this is such a fabulous recipe!! A great idea for a dinner party and I bet they can be prepped ahead and baked right before the party!
I love Feta cheese! the choice of kale is good and original (I usually use spinach for this kind of appetizer) Must taste fantastic 😉
Oh, yum!!! I might just have to make gluten-free wonton wrappers so I can enjoy this delicious dish! If not that, I will make up your filling and spread it on some gluten-free toast a la bruschetta. Happy #greenslove!!

I’ve never really thought about making my own wontons, but these look like the perfect appetizer. And like they’re not terribly hard to make.. I’ll have to try this out! Sending #greenslove your way! 😀
Oh Georgie! These look fantastic! Kale and feta are a winning combination. Surely love to give this a try.
I need to make wontons more often. My family loves them and I really love your vegetarian version. They look fantastic, Georgie:)
I have yet to make wontons and this recipe is inspiring me to try. Love feta so I think the combo is wonderful. Good luck with your greens month. Beautiful creation for greenslove.
I’ve never had such a wonton – only deep fried or boiled pork ones. Nice healthy alternative
Very nice indeed and it´s the first time I´ve heard of flavoured feta which I love the sound of!
What a fun idea, and really so quick to make. I am always looking for quick dishes, my life is too busy:-) Happy GreensLove! Hugs, Terra
What a delicious dish! I love feta, those wontons might have had a great success at home!
What a great appetizer and healthy too. Love the kale and feta combo.
