Artichoke and Kale dip with carrots

Yummy Artichoke and Kale Dip

File Apr 26, 6 44 47 PM Jackie’s Tips:

I use Natural Value Coconut Cream– it has no guar gum in it.  Guar gum can be an irritant to people with digestive issues and many coconut creams and coconut milks have this ingredient.  If you put the can of coconut cream in the fridge over night the cream will be on top and a small amount of liquid on the bottom.  You just have to scoop out the cream with a spoon.  This dip is great with veggies or plantain chips.

Instructions

  • 1. Scoop 1/2 heaping cup of coconut cream out of the can. All you want is the solid white cream, not the liquid. There will be some liquid left and you can use this for a smoothie or something else.
  • 2. Finely chop onion and garlic- set aside
  • 3. Drain artichoke hearts and place on a double or triple layer of paper towels and squeeze until moisture is mostly gone. Coarsely chop artichokes and set aside
