- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 onion finely chopped
- 2 garlic cloves minced
- 2 cups coarsely chopped spinach
- 1 cup coarsely chopped kale
- ½ cup corn
- ¼ cup 2% milk
- 4 oz reduced fat cream cheese
- 3 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 2 teaspoons sriracha or hot-pepper sauce
- ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- salt and pepper to taste
- If making on the same day, preheat oven to 425°F. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, approx. 5-8 minutes.
- Add spinach and kale in two additions, letting the first batch wilt down before adding the next. Add corn and cook until greens are completely wilted, tossing frequently, approx. 6-8 minutes. To remove all excess liquid, transfer to a colander and drain. (If you are making this in advance, simply allow the spinach and kale mixture to cook before transferring to an airtight container and refrigerate.)
- Bring milk to a simmer. Add cream cheese and cook, whisking, until melted and well incorporated. Add the spinach and kale mixture, Worcestershire sauce, sriracha, and ¼ cup mozzarella. Stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer mixture to a lightly oiled shallow baking dish. Top with remaining ¼ cup mozzarella. Bake until cheese is golden brown and bubbly, about 20-25 minutes. Serve hot.
I never watched football before I got married. However, I had a tremendous appreciation for the sport’s incredible influence and power in uniting people and instilling a pride for the team that they support. Living in Austin, I’ve quickly learned that come September, it’s burnt orange time (although maroon has been making a strong showing lately…Hungryman prefers that I don’t mention that little tidbit). To please my diehard Longhorn let’s just say that burnt orange is the only acceptable color during this season ;). Emory didn’t have a football team so I don’t have to worry about being unfaithful to my alma mater by sporting the color myself.
While I would love to watch the games with him, with so much going on in my life right now, it just doesn’t seem likely. However, since I’m such a wonderful wife (ahem..right, Tim?), I will continue to make him some delicious eats.
Last week, I made hot spinach and kale dip, which was a HUGE success! I got him to eat kale and actually enjoy it!
