Notes about this recipe

    These were OK but probably not worth the effort. Essentially, you make a sauce, bake a potato, make the fonio, sauté onions and kale and then combine ingredients in a blender and a food processer so it's a lot of steps. The recipe has you making a chimichurri sauce (which you really need with the kale balls) first but since you need to chill the balls for at least two hours, the sauce can wait. Terry never mentions covering the pot while you cook the fonio but you should. The recipe only says two cups of kale without specifying how densely packed it should be. I went with lightly packed but I think the final product could have used more kale. My balls were a reddish brown with flecks of green not at all like the picture (which I think was stylized). You're not going to be able to form real balls until the product has chilled for a bit. But with the miso, aminos and tomato paste they were fairly tasty so I'm not completely ruling out a repeat given how much kale my CSA gives me.
