Potato Whip Dip

Ahh... Gotta love a little mountain of potato goodness. :)
Hi all! I hope all is going well! Today I have a dip for you that is almost like mashed potatoes, but better! Just kidding. :P Nothing beats a bowl of steaming hot mashed taters, but this is super yummy as it is: a mix between a dip and mashed potatoes. What's great about it is that it tastes great hot, at room temperature, and cold! And it is great on top of a salad, as a small side, or just plain straight dipping in with a cucumber, flax cracker, or whatever else you have on hand. Plus, it's a super cheap dip to make when you have guests over since taters are relatively cheap (and filling :) ). So go ahead and whip up this bad boy of a dip! :P

Potato Whip Dip
Yield: Approximately 2 cups (About 5 ½ cup servings)

Ingredients:
1/3 cup cashews (soaked 1 hour)
¼ cup water
1 tablespoon minced onion
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
½ teaspoon black pepper
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon minced garlic
2 cups chopped (1 inch cube), boiled or steamed potatoes
½ cup finely chopped kale, destemmed

Directions:
Place the cashews in the food processor and process until the cashews are almost turning into a nut butter (it will get somewhat creamy but stay a bit crumbly). Add the water, onion, lemon juice, black pepper, salt, and garlic and process until smooth. Add the potatoes and process again until smooth. Then add the kale and pulse to combine. Enjoy!

Tips:
  • Feel free to mix and match your potatoes. I used half russet potatoes and half sweet potatoes and it came out so yummy! :)
  • You can swap the kale for some spinach or any other green you have on hand. It will still taste yummers. :) I just really like the sweetness that kale can bring to the dip.
  • You can totally swap out the cashews for another creamy white nut, such as macadamias, or you can use a buttery nut like walnuts. Mmmm... the possibilities are endless!

Comfort food that is great for those cold nights. :P
This dip is full of vitamin C and K from the kale and has a good amount of copper, manganese and Vitamin B6. Woot! :P You could totally adjust the salt amounts to your taste and decrease it to reduce the sodium.

Here is the full nutritional information for the dip and below is the basic nutritional information from CRON-O-Meter:


Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you all enjoy the dip and have an awesome evening! Feel free to comment; I would love to hear what you have to say. :) See you all soon with another recipe!
