This recipes was wonderful. If the Kale is too narrow, just overlap a few Kale Leaves to make a wide enough leaf to roll. Using this method gave me 8 nice sized rolls. I made the quinoa in advance and I just put the kale rolls in the pan I used to make the sauce, topped with cheese and nuts, covered and let simmer for 5 minutes and served. This method took me 40 minutes to prepare and serve. My husband likes spicey food, so I put a few drops of sriracha sauce in each roll. It is Delicious!
Quinoa-Stuffed Kale Rolls with Goat Cheese

This recipe definitely took 2 hours to prepare, and I spread it over two nights. The first night I made the quinoa and tomato sauce, then made the kale and baked it the second night. The lacinato kale I found had narrow leaves, there was no way it would have rolled up into little purses like the picture. So I layered it like a lasagna in the pan. It worked okay, but didn't cut well at all with the "strips" of kale. After much frustration, I found that kitchen shears worked way better than a knife. At least I knew we were getting our fiber! I was surprised that the flavors were really good considering the simple list of ingredients (though I wish there was more goat cheese!), and my husband really liked it. But the amount of work was not worth it, so just two stars.
