Green Flecked Potato Balls- Love 'Em!

These are absolutly amazing and fun to eat, not to mention super cheap and filling.  I'll admit, they do take a bit of work, but it's not all that time-consuming, it's just rather tedious.  What are these litte balls of goodness?  Well, it's potato, kale, and quite a bit of seasoning, all rolled in little balls.  Baked until they have a nice outer layer and become nice and puffy.  Great hot of cold.  What more could you ask for a lunch?  Plus, what I liked, too, was that I got exactly thirty.  It pleased my OCD.  Hehe...

Potato and Kale Puffs




Adapted from Fat Free Vegan
Makes 30

1 1/2 pounds potatoes cut into ½ inch cubes
1 small bunch kale
2 tbsp parmesan cheese, grated
1 1/2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp thyme
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 tbsp soymilk
2 tbsp corn starch

Bring a large pot of water to a boil for the potatoes, and boil until tender, about 10 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 375.
While the potatoes are cooking, stem the kale. Drain the potatoes, and then reheat your pan to saut√© the kale. Cook the kale for 5 minutes, or until almost entirely wilted. Remove the kale with a slotted spoon, and then chop finely. Mash the potatoes, and then stir in the remaining ingredients. Shape the mixture into little balls, and then put on a baking sheet—you should have exactly 30…
Bake for 30 minutes, or when they have developed a nice firm outside, but are still soft inside.
Serve hot or cold.
