Recipe: Kale Dip

I know there are plenty of you who LOVE kale, but this recipe is for those of you who don’t.  Or for your kids.  Combined with raw carrots and snap peas, this is a healthy snack.  If you are a hard-core raw kale eater, skip the step where you cook it 🙂  This recipe is from www.wholeliving.com.


Wash 1 bunch of kale and remove the tough stems.  Chop roughly.

Mince green garlic to make 1 T.  Saute the garlic in 1 T. olive oil until tender, then add the kale and raise the heat.  Cook for 3-4 minutes, add salt to taste.

Transfer the kale to a food processor and add 1 C. cottage cheese (for a little tangier flavor, use 1/2 C. each cottage cheese and goat chevre.) plus 1 T. lemon juice and a pinch of red pepper flakes.  Puree until smooth.

Serve with sliced carrots and summer squash, and trimmed snap peas.
