Advice

The rolls will be easier to stuff if you lay the kale leaf on the work table so that the wide part of the leaf is facing you. You can carefully remove the thick part of the vein using a knife. Turn the leaf so that the side facing the inside of the head is facing up, and place the stuffing in the hollow part of the leaf. Shape the stuffing into a roll, place on the middle of the upper part of the leaf and roll, tucking the sides under the stuffing.
