Kale and Artichoke Dip

Artichoke Dip

Warm and creamy Artichoke Dip! I cannot find the words to express how dawg-on good this was. Like stop-the-presses-slap-yo’-momma good. It’s basically just like spinach and artichoke dip but with kale because kale is all the rage these days. Anyways, this is super simple to make–takes maybe 20 minutes tops in just one pan. And, if you wanted to make it ahead, it stores perfectly in the fridge…or oven for that matter. Store it cold, store it warm…whatevs. It’s all good. Perfection for an afternoon snack, party appetizer, or part of a light dinner.

How to Make Artichoke Dip

Start by sautéing some onions in some butter. All good things in life start with butter. {see this recipe.}

Artichoke Dip Recipe

After the onions have softened a bit, grate in some garlic using this handy dandy little grater.

Once the garlic has become fragrant, toss in some baby kale. You can chop it beforehand or chop it later once it’s all cooked OR just leave the leaves big…totally up to you.

About 2 minutes later, your kale should be all wilty and yummy with those onions and garlic so we’ll add in cream cheese, sour cream, salt, and pepper.

Stir that all around to melt the cream cheese and add in some chopped marinated artichoke hearts. I LOVE these. I bought two giant jars of these at Costco the other day and haven’t looked back since. #smartestideaever

You only need 3 more things before this dip is done and you can shovel it right into your mouth. First is some parmesan cheese. Grate it in right over the pan. This little lover did a great job at the whole grating thing.

Next is some cheddar. Love love love me some cheddar.

And then the last thing you need is a little heavy cream to thin the whole thing out. Add as much or as little as you’d like.

For me, this was just about perfect. Not too thick, not too thin. Taste and adjust your seasonings too. *Important*

And here she blows! Moment of truth! Spoon the dip into a bowl and serve.

I had crackers and carrots on hand, so that’s what we ate with this.

Artichoke Dip

The ritz crackers were my fav with this. But I think it has to do with ritz being a very buttery cracker. I like butter.

    I am quite partial to spinach and artichoke dips. In fact, if it’s on the menu, you can pretty much count on me ordering it as a starter. This looks like a fun and delicious variation on that and I am very excited to give it a try. Thanks Lauren!

    Ooh I would make something naughty for sure! Grated chocolate anyone? 🙂 Lauren I just love your writing 🙂 It’s like we are sitting down for lunch together and having a good laugh! Xoxo- K

    Gorgeous dip, Lauren. I can’t wait to make this and slather it on everything, especially on carrots. I try to eat carrots when I feel like indulging in cake or something but they really don’t taste all that good. But I’m sure the dip will most definitely help.

    As for the giveaway, the first thing I’d make is tangerine beef with glass noodles, which involves lots of tangerine zest as you could imagine!

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway!
