  1. Preheat the oven to 200C / gas mark 6.
  2. Peel and finely chop the onion and garlic. Roughly chop the kale and finely chop the parsley.
  3. In a bowl, mix together the pork mince, parsley, smoked paprika, garlic and onion. Season with sea salt and black pepper and roll into small 50g balls. Place the meatballs on a baking tray, drizzle with 2 tsp olive oil and bake in the oven for 15-20 mins, until cooked through.
  4. Meanwhile, boil a kettle. Peel the parsnips and chop into large pieces. Place the parsnips in a pan of boiling water and cook for 5-7 mins until just soft, then drain.
  5. Heat a frying pan with 1 tsp oil and sauté the parsnips for 5 mins, then add the kale and cook for a further 5 mins until the parsnips turn golden.
  6. Place the sautéed parsnips on a warm plate with the kale, and top with the pork meatballs.
