Ingredients for Cheesy Purple Kale Dip
What is Purple Kale? Good question, when I saw this beautiful and attractive purple kale I was super excited but kept wondering about its taste and some exciting ways to include these nutrient dense leaves.
Coming to our original question Purple Kale is another type of Kale which is edible and found in cooler climates. Its taste is not very different from the regular kale but the stems are tougher and the leaves appear to be strong.
Sometimes when cooked this purple kale changes its color to bright green and if eaten raw its purple color is maintained. Kale is antioxidant rich with high content of iron, vitamin A and the advantage of consuming kale is that it offers more calcium than milk.
So for my recipe I decided to try these purple kale leaves raw and make a dip out of these beautiful leaves. For this, along with chopped purple kale I combined two varieties of cheese and spiced it up with jalapeno peppers and seasoned this dip with dried herbs. Within 10 minutes super yummy and exotic Cheesy Purple Kale Dip was ready and we ate it all with our favorite chips and veggies while chatting away with friends at a potluck party.
