Creamy Kale Dip
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 bunch kale, chopped (remove stems)
1 cup cream cheese
1/4 cup mayo
2 T milk
freshly ground pepper
1/2 t. hot sauce or siracha
3/4 cup Parmesan cheese (freshly grated best)
extra virgin olive oil
Step one: Heat oven to 425. Rub an 8 x 8 casserole dish lightly with olive oil. In a medium skillet, heat about a T of oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook 3 to 4 minutes, or until fragrant. Add kale, cook 10 minutes or until wilted.
Step two: In a large bowl, beat cream cheese, mayo and milk until smooth. Stir in hot sauce and then kale mixture along with 1/4 cup of the Parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Pour into the casserole and top with the rest of the Parmesan. Bake uncovered for 30 to 45 minutes.
Serve with crackers, bread and/or veggies.
