Kale Falafel/Burgers/”Neatballs”

Kale! Falafel? Burgers? NeatBalls!!!

Inspiration comes from many people and places always! Lately Facebook has been my haven of collecting and sharing thought provoking and inspirational information. A short time ago, I came across a link for an article called, “7 Reasons Kale is the new beef”. Just this week, deeply engrossed in conversation about putting kale into the diet, I was inspired by a couple of friends to create this Kale rich and versatile recipe… for anyone who may be struggling with creative Vegan dishes, or just making tasty options that even the most stubborn flesh eaters can enjoy this is for YOU!



Since Mother’s Day is in May, I decided to create this recipe in honor of her. She loves Indian curry food, although is not a fan of spice, so this is a mild dish. You can add as much or as little spice as you choose. Despite the fact that the recipe looks long, it’s really simple. A zap in the food processor, a quick mix in the blender, and a bit of chopping here and there. Allow at least 2 hours for the eggplant to sit in the dehydrator, but for best results, about 4-6 hours. Enjoy!



I have some amazing childhood memories and although I lost both my parents at a very young age, the years we did have together have shaped and formed the woman that I am today. Coming from an Italian family, the kitchen was where all the action was! One very fond memory of my father was his addiction to meat balls!! I’m not kidding, the man LOVED meat balls! My mother would spend many hours in the kitchen trying to come up with new and inventive ways to serve him up his favorite – with a new twist of course!
