Healthy but Oh-so-good Kale Dip

So I’m on the Kale train. It’s the hip new veggie but I actually like it! I’ve baked it, sauteed it, and now I’ve made a dip and my daughter can’t get enough! I saw a recipe online and changed it to my tastes. LOVE IT. If you try it, let me know! LONG LIVE KALE!

Ingredients

4 ounces of Cream Cheese, softened
6 ounces of Greek Plain yogurt
1/2 cup shredded parmesan
1/2 cup Ricotta cheese
1 tsp of garlic powder
salt & pepper to taste
6 ounces of Kale, chopped or whole
Package of chip…I like the baked pita chips

Method

Preheat the oven to 400°

In a large bowl mix together the Parmesan cheese, 1/2 cup of the ricotta, garlic, salt & pepper, and kale until it’s completely mixed together.

Then in your pie plate/dish, cut up the cream cheese into pieces and place them all at the bottom of the pan. I did this because I didn’t get the cream cheese soft enough to mix so I just did this and stirred it later.

Put the kale mixture on top (it will wilt and reduce down in size as it bakes). Cover it and bake for 20 minutes. Take it out, stir it and bake for another 10 minutes. Then add the remaining 1/2 cup of ricotta and and bake for another 5 minutes.

BAM. Amazing, pretty healthy dip. You can use any cheese that melts well like mozzarella or fontina, but I had ricotta laying around and it was perfect. Just keep in mind the saltiness of your cheese and adjust the seasoning of salt.

ENJOY!
