Creamy Kale Artichoke Dip

This recipe comes to us from our partner Amelia Winslow, who cooks and blogs at Eating Made Easy. It’s a brilliant take on a legendary game-day snack, featuring our flavorful organic Kale. 

“I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone who doesn’t love spinach artichoke dip,” Amelia says. “Trouble is, it’s not exactly a ‘light’ dish. But this spinach artichoke dip — actually, Kale Artichoke Dip — is not only delicious but also nutritious. Really. And it’s every bit as good (better, if you prefer less grease and more flavor) as the traditional versions of this crowd pleaser.”

What makes this dip awesome? First, the greens: our Kale adds wonderful flavor with a nice texture, and the leaves hold up perfectly, even cooked amid the dip’s richer ingredients. Blending soft white beans into a smooth purée achieves the creaminess you want in this recipe, but in a much healthier way — and the beans add heart-healthy fiber. And cheese…well, cheese makes everything better!

“The first time my husband tasted this recipe, he asked me — in all seriousness — if we could have this as an appetizer before dinner every night,” Amelia says. “My 3-1/2-year-old daughter was a bit more skeptical, since she claims not to like ‘finich’ (her word for spinach). When I told her the greens in the dip were actually kale rather than spinach, she still hesitated…then I told her the whole thing was mostly melted cheese, and she was all in. She ended up loving the dish, and she gobbled up those deep green leaves as eagerly as we did.”

Jalapeno Arugula Aioli

Customers at our Farm Stand’s Organic Kitchen in Carmel Valley, CA, crave this creamy green sauce that, despite its spicy name, has just a slight bite. Arugula gives the aioli its peppery freshness, and baby spinach provides the delicate green color. While some jalapeño peppers are fairly mild, others are quite hot. If the jalapeños are too hot for your taste, use less and leave out the ribs and seeds.
