These are inspired by the Ikea veggie balls. They are very delicious. Once I tried them at Ikea, I knew I had to find the recipe and make it myself.
The collard greens are the magic ingredient in these. That is what gives them their unique flavor.
They go great with some mashed potatoes or rice. It is a quick and easy dinner option that even the picky eaters will enjoy.
