Cheesy Kale Cups Ingredients

  • 1/2 bunch of organic kale
  • 12 gyoza or wonton wrappers
  • 1/2 cup grated Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup organic mayonnaise
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Move oven racks to lower-middle of the oven and preheat to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Line mini muffin pans with gyoza or wonton wrappers. Bake in preheated oven for 5-7 minutes so cups start to crisp up (but don’t let them start to brown).
  3. While cups are baking, chop kale into fairly small pieces. In a medium bowl combine kale and remaining ingredients and mix until combined.
  4. Stuff each cup to the top with filling, pushing down gently to pack it in, but not so hard you crack the cups.
  5. Bake for another 5-10 minutes until the cheese has melted and the cups are turning brown.
