Kale & Artichoke Dip

2015-01-26 17.03.36

Seems these days I am constantly working to create recipes for clients that are gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free and egg-free. So many people deal with serious allergies, food intolerances or health problems and as a result are required to eliminate these foods.

I LOVE being able to provide people with delicious food that they can get excited about without worrying if it’s compatible with their diet.

This is a quick & fun dip to make for a party, the Super Bowl, or just for yourself! This also happens to be awesome baked on top of salmon (spread a thin layer across top) or use to coat chicken breast and bake it to create a creamy chicken artichoke dinner.

Dairy-free, nut-free, vegetarian, vegan and paleo friendly, it is sure to satisfy any crowd!
