Cheesy Broccoli Leaf Dip Recipe
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
1 8oz package cream cheese
1 16oz package sour cream
½ cup grated parmesan cheese
2 Tbsp Ranch seasoning
2 ½ cups finely chopped broccoli leaves *
Several stocks green onion
2 cloves garlic
Mix cream cheese and sour cream in a small pot on low-med heat until well blended and smooth. Remove from heat and add ½ cup parmesan cheese and Ranch seasoning stirring until well blended. Finely chop your Broccoli leaves, the smaller the better.
Add the remaining ingredients to your cheese sauce, stir and serve, or refrigerate for an hour and serve chilled.
*If you don’t have broccoli leaves readily available you can substitute spinach or kale leaves. I harvested mine from my garden, and if you’ve never grown broccoli before I highly recommend it. It grows well in cooler temperatures and is not only a super food, but it’s incredibly versatile as a plant. The leaves, stems and heads (florets) are all edible.
