Author Notes: Stuffing is not just for Thanksgiving! This recipe is basically just kale, spinach, parsley and onions and incorporates just a little bit of bread crumbs to create a healthy side dish. It can be used instead of stuffing/dressing and won't stuff you! (but, it is delicious with turkey)dymnyno
