Blending kale into a simple, creamy dip is a great way to get kids involved in cooking with the veggie of the month. Your little chef can get hands-on experience by preparing the kale for this recipe: wash and dry the kale leaves, remove the kale stems, and rip or cut the kale into small pieces. The kale is first cooked with garlic to infuse the dip with lots of flavor and make the kale easily blend into the white beans. Make sure you have your little one push the button on the food processor and watch the bean dip turn a beautiful shade of green. Serve the dip with crackers and fresh veggies, or spread it on bread for a delicious sandwich filling.
