Packed with calcium, vitamin a, and fiber, this green leafy vegetable also contains one of the antioxidants that nutrition experts believe to play a major role in the battle against cancer, heart disease and certain age-related diseases. The calcium that kale provides happens to be very easily absorbed, so add it to your list of vegetables to eat for healthy bones (Source: Health Benefits of Kale).
This dip is a great way to get your family to eat kale! Bring it to your holiday party this year, and you'll have everyone asking for the recipe :)
1 cup vegenaise or other mayo
1/2 yellow onion, chopped
3-4 kale leaves - stems removed - and lightly steamed *or a 9oz package of frozen kale (thawed)
salt and pepper to taste
Blend in food processor until ingredients are lightly mixed together. You don't want to blend it too much.
*I didn't have frozen kale, so I used fresh. You can also put this dip in a glass oven dish and bake at 350 for approximately 20 minutes or until bubbly and lightly brown. This indeed rivals spinach artichoke dip.
I found this recipe at another gluten-free casein-free blog, The Good Eatah. Thank you for sharing!
I am going to make this again for Christmas. So good!
