Kale & Artichoke Dip

By Kelly Pfeiffer | October 05, 2015
This is just like your favorite spinach and artichoke dip you’d get as an appetizer at a restaurant, but with healthier superfood substitutions such as kale and Greek yogurt. Super-easy to make and loved by all, it will probably be your new go-to party appetizer.


  • 1 tablespoon (14 g) coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 cups (140 g) chopped, destemmed kale
  • ½ cup (115 g) plain Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup (50 g) grated Parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup (60 g) shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ½ cup (100 g) whipped cream cheese
  • 1 (14-ounce, or 392 g) can artichoke hearts, drained and diced
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • Pita chips, for serving


Yield: 6 servings

Preheat the oven to 325°F (170°C, or gas mark 3). Spray a 7 1⁄2-inch (19-cm) pie pan with nonstick spray.

In a skillet over medium heat, melt the coconut oil. Add the garlic and kale, and saute for approximately 5 minutes, until the kale is softened but not browned.

Add to a medium-size mixing bowl, then stir in the yogurt, cheeses, cream cheese, artichoke hearts, and salt. Scrape into the prepared baking dish.

Bake for 30 minutes, or until lightly browned and bubbling. Serve with the pita chips.
