A recipe for Kale and Artichoke Dip with baked pita chips. Kale and Artichoke Dip ingredients. A recipe for Kale and Artichoke Dip. Hey Guys! Teri and I took ourselves a bit of a “winter break” from the blog, but now we’re back with some neat recipes to share with you all! We’re trying our best to start this year off right by staying active and filling our bodies up with delicious, health(ier) foods. So that brings us to today’s recipe. I must say I have a bit of a weakness for oober creamy spinach and artichoke dip and love snacking on the stuff, hot or cold. It’s such a great comfort food for me and when I’m nibbling away I usually feel like this. Unfortunately I can feel my thighs grow the second the dip hits my lips, so this kale and artichoke dip is my healthier version of spinach and artichoke dip. It’s a cold version of the dip that I make with nonfat Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise and cream cheese and bulked up with sauteed kale and shallots, instead of spinach, although you could always stick with spinach if that’s what you prefer. Not only are we starting the year with a delicious and healthier recipe, but we’re also hosting a giveaway! Check the details out below! I hope everyone has started their 2013 with a nice, fresh and healthy start! Enjoy!
xx, Jenny

Kale and Artichoke Dip
Makes 2 cups

Ingredients:
2 1/2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 shallot, chopped
5 ounces chopped kale, ribs removed
1/4 cup dry white wine (chicken or vegetable broth is okay)
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/4 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
1/4 cup fat free sour cream (optional)
1/4 cup grated Parmesan
1 cup chopped (canned) artichoke hearts
1/2 cup diced water chestnuts
1 green onion, thinly sliced
1 lemon, zested and juiced
2 teaspoons dry mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 1/2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon cumin, optional
salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
1. Place oil in a large sauté pan, over medium-high heat. Add shallots and sauté for 1 minute. Add kale and continue to sauté for 3 minutes.
2. Add wine and cover for 1 minute or until kale has wilted and all the liquid has dissolved from the pan. Sprinkle garlic over mixture and sauté for 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
3. Remove mixture from stove and transfer to a food processor. Pulse 3 to 4 times and set aside.
4. In a large mixing bowl combine the kale mixture with the remaining ingredients and stir together until the dip is well mixed. Season generously with salt and pepper. Refrigerate until ready to use.
5. Serve with baked, whole wheat pita chips.

*Recipe note: The cumin in this recipe is optional because I gave some to my sister who devoured half the batch, but then to my boyfriend who thought I was trying to poison him. We ended up finding out the issue was the smokiness of the cumin… it might not be for everyone, so adjust accordingly. :)

**UPDATE** We have picked a random winner and that person is Darius! Thank you to everyone who entered! ***UPDATE #2*** Sorry Darius, you never responded to our email, so our new winner is Elliot! Thanks guys!

  1. Erin @ The Spiffy Cookie Not Specified Not Specified

    Love this change from spinach dip using kale! I love to cook to music that makes me want to dance.

  2. Alyse Not Specified Not Specified

    I tend to match my music to the food I’m cooking. Usually I’m frenzied and dancing around, but sometimes I listen to some slow jamz while braising…

  3. naomi c Not Specified Not Specified

    this looks like a great dip – might make it this weekend for ANOTHER christmas with family…

    i like to listen to the oldies – dorky? yes!

  4. Ka Ning Not Specified Not Specified

    I just discovered Turntable Kitchen a month ago and I am hoping to get a subscription of it for my birthday! And perhaps a record player too…

    In terms of music, I love to listen to indie music when I cook. It’s calming!

  5. Kelly E. Not Specified Not Specified

    I’ve been listening to a lot of Ella Fitzgerald in recent months. It’s that nice calming affect with a little bit of sass – just right for the kitchen!

  6. Annmarie Not Specified Not Specified

    I’m definitely going to be making this dip! I love listening to my vinyls when cooking… lot’s of Glenn Miller Orchestra or The Big Chill soundtrack is a good one. Sometimes if I’m in the mood some Ella Fitzgerald.

  7. Courtney B. Not Specified Not Specified

    Florence and the Machine…I just rock out while I stir.

  8. Kerry K Not Specified Not Specified

    I love to listen to jazz standards or Wilco while cooking/baking. Helps me chill out and pace myself.

  9. Heather Not Specified Not Specified

    Michael Buble, Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin.

  10. ileana Not Specified Not Specified

    Bossa nova or my John Legend/Robin Thicke Pandora station. Or Beyonce or Etta James. Depends on the day!

  11. this is lemonade Not Specified Not Specified

    Yummy! Love the sound of that dip, it has some of the flavours I always have in the cupboard/fridge along with some really nice seasonal ones. I must try this. I have the bottom of a sour cream pot and half a pot of Greek yoghurt to use up. I think I’ll just do an improv on what you’ve suggested and see what happens because I’m too lazy to go grocery shopping… c’mon, it’s only 3 days into 2013! Thanks for inspiring! ;)

  12. Astrid Not Specified Not Specified

    Basically, I have to listen to whatever my toddler can tolerate while I try to cook. The good thing, is that she has good taste, and I can usually sway her towards something we’ll both enjoy in the moment. I like a little Coltrane or Miles Davis when I cook. If I’m making something regional, I really like to listen to music from that country or area- dorky, I know- but a lot of fun!

    Thanks for the opportunity to win this awesome give-away!

    Astrid

  13. adrienne Not Specified Not Specified

    I prefer to listen to something a little funky – soul, r&B, something to sing along to and groove with.

  23. Katrina @ Warm Vanilla Sugar Not Specified Not Specified

    Yusss! This sounds awesome!

  24. Sarah Not Specified Not Specified

    Depends on the mood, but upbeat music gets me jazzed for cooking and baking, especially with dishes that may take more effort. If I want to use cooking as a stress reliever, I’ll go for something more mellow.

  25. Emily R. Not Specified Not Specified

    Ingrid Michaelson makes for good cooking music. Upbeat and light, but meaningful.

  26. Seth Not Specified Not Specified

    Happy New Year — Love your Posts – keep ‘em coming! When we’re both in the kitchen (almost always) my wife’s favorite artist, Eric Clapton, usually gets the nod… and who can argue, he’s the best! That said, it’s always whatever we have on vinyl (record player in the kitchen, brilliant!). Recently we stumbled onto Clapton’s ’78 Backless LP, so that’s what’s going to be spinning this weekend for sure!

  27. Elizabeth Not Specified Not Specified

    My favorite is kitchen music is Van Morrison’s “Moondance” on an old vinyl I got from my parents.

    Has to be post grunge rock. My kitchen lives in the 1990s.

  31. Mai Not Specified Not Specified

    The type of music I cook to really depends on the type of day that I’ve had. If it’s been a rough day, I cook dinner to light, soft music like Jason Mraz or Ray LaMontagne. But if I’m in a playful mood, I like to cook to pop music like Lady Gaga or the Black Eyed Peas.

  32. Nicole Not Specified Not Specified

    This looks delicious!
    I love listening to Paul Simon when I cook or bake.

  33. Tamara Stone Not Specified Not Specified

A bottle for me and a splash in whatever dish I’m making ;-) Music? Usually an eclectic mix of retro and modern… anything from one hit wonders of the 80’s to today’s alternative sounds. It’s all good!

  34. Marta R. Not Specified Not Specified

    Oh, how it sucks to be an european when shipping is involved…

    My guilty music pleasure when cooking alone is Glee! Or sometimes the 90s Pandora station

    This artichoke dip looks to die for! YUM!

    I love listening to classic hymns while I cook. There is a band called King’s Kaleidoscope and Page CXVI that sing stuff like: Come Thou Fount, Amazing Grace, In Christ Alone, Rock of Ages, Etc. in a very modern and new style. Definitely worth checking out!

  57. Sara @ The Cozy Herbivore Not Specified Not Specified

    Wow, this dip looks fantastic, and after a whole month of heavy eating, nice & light too. I can’t wait to give it a try. My favorite music to listen to when I’m cooking: I recently discovered Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, and her old-school funk/r&b really gets me grooving.

  71. Jenn Not Specified Not Specified

  96. Katie Not Specified Not Specified

    I LOVE the idea of Turntable Kitchen – brilliant! And perfect as a wedding gift for friends that live in NYC with a tiny apt. and no need for additional material items that clutter their space. I like to listen to Sam Cooke and other oldies when I am lighting up the kitchen.

  98. LED Not Specified Not Specified

    YUMMY looking recipe! I love the addition of kale and cumin – its smoky flavor is good in my world! As for my favorite kind of music I enjoy cooking too….evening – for sure orchestral – a Tchaikovsky symphony always is lovely – but Sat/Sun morning brunch and coffee type of cooking almost always opt for Paul Simon or Sting “radio” on Pandora. Thanks for considering my entry! ldeusinger – at – yahoo – dot – com.

    I listen to Sinatra while I’m cooking… Is there any other option? I mean really…

  119. Cindy Brickley Not Specified Not Specified

    Your dip is a wonderful change up from the usual spinach. I love to listen to the “Blues” while I am cooking and/or dancing, my husband likes to work with me in the kitchen and we find ourselves dancing to the music while we are slicing, dicing and chopping. Now if I could only get him to help and dance with me while I clean the house!

    Now that is a tasty sounding dip!

  135. MICKEY Not Specified Not Specified

    I cook to soft jazz, preferably with no sung words — I find if I’m singing along, I might miss adding a vital ingredient (or add the wrong ingredient – makes a BIG difference!) So just give me the music and I’ll synchronize my chopping and stirring!

  136. Heidi Hess Not Specified Not Specified

    THE best music to listen to while cooking? Michael Franks, “The Art of Tea”.

  137. Zan Not Specified Not Specified

    I listen to Motown. I slide and dance around on my kitchen floor as I cook and sing along.

    Ain’t not Mountain High……..

  147. Allison (Spontaneous Tomato) Not Specified Not Specified

    I like to listen to Po’ Girl or The Be Good Tanyas while cooking… or Florence & the Machine if I need something to give me a little more energy.

  148. Mei Not Specified Not Specified

    Huge fan of Turntable Kitchen! Depending on what I’m cooking, I tend to alternate anywhere from Collie Buddz and Jah Cure all the way to Imogen Heap.

    while it was christmas music last month, it’s usually some podcasts, including joy the baker!

  150. Ashley D Not Specified Not Specified

    First, that dip looks awesome! Now, as for music that I like to listen to while cooking, lately I’ve been switching between the Dirty Dancing soundtrack and Handwritten by the Gaslight Anthem. I guess I like to dance while I cook/bake :)

    Definitely holiday music through all of my overtime cooking starting in November and through most of January, but otherwise I like to listen to anything that gets me amped up and makes me feel powerful –The Rolling , Prince, Wu Tang Clan, and Dolly Parton are favorites!

  152. Ingrid Not Specified Not Specified

    I love watching to mellow rap like Macklemore. Makes me feel happy and pumped up :D

  153. Amanda Thompson Not Specified Not Specified

    Depends on the day: Country, 80’s, Silly Pop Songs, Slow Jams…just depends on my mood I guess!

  154. Kyle Not Specified Not Specified

    I loveto listen to my Wilson Phillips Pandora station!

  155. Jill Not Specified Not Specified

    Reggae all the way! Like Sister Carol or streaming KEXP’s Positive Vibrations show. Oh man, so good, no Bob Marley and it just makes you feel happy. It’s a good break from all the folky emo that plays all the rest of the time in the house :)

    When cooking after work I usually listen to evening news on NPR but depending on the time I’ll lister to the jazz program. All kinds of jazz but bird land gets me moving and grooving!

    This dip looks like it could be a healthy saving grace for our super bowl party! I love listening to the pop hot 100 list while cooking. It’s my only time alone I can sing along without tormenting my fiance with my off-key ballads.

    Do you think it would ruin the dip if I skipped the water chestnuts? Can’t get ‘em fresh in my neck of the woods and it would waste the rest of the can I bought them canned.

  172. Amanda Not Specified Not Specified

    Proceeding to make this today, but for the life of me cannot figure out a metric conversion for the 5 ounces of Kale (canadian here) What would that be in cups? Are you using ounces as weight or volume?

  173. Hussah Not Specified Not Specified

    I was wondering if this dip can be baked after preparing it. The spinach artichoke dip I usually make is usually baked after it is prepared and tastes quite good. Have you tried it baked?
