Healthy Kale Dip – 10 Minutes
A healthy kale dip is always a great way to add some flare to your veggies. It makes it easier for me to at least eat my veggies when I coat it with a delicious dip. I am not a very patient cook so when I can figure out a recipe that is quick and simple to make for my busy schedule, it is a double win in my book. So I thought I would share this recipe I made up on my own. Check out the steps of this healthy kale dip below.
Total Time – 10 minutes
Ingredients –Kale (1 bushel), Cottage Cheese (1.5 cups), Lemon (1 tbs), Cayenne Pepper (1/4 tbs), Olive Oil (2 tbs), Garlic (1 clove), and Salt (Optional)
- First I just put the olive oil, garlic clove chopped, and kale in a pan on medium heat for 5 minutes. Make sure you remove the kale leaves off the stems. You can also chop up the kale a little bit so it can blend faster. When I am in a rush I just remove the leaves and put it in the pan.
- Next I remove all from the pan and dump it in my blender. Then I add the cottage cheese, cayenne pepper, and a dash of salt. Blend for 2 minutes or until you get the texture you want for your dip. It might also help to add a little water to get the blending going because the kale might jam the bottom of the blender.
Voila! You made a really healthy packed dip in less than 10 minutes. I’ll eat this with carrots and snow peas but you can definitely choose whatever vegetable you desire. I think this healthy kale dip can be used as a condiment for sandwiches. Being creative with my healthy foods is a necessity because I want to ensure I intake all the vitamins I need during the day.
