Hubba hubba. Isn't she GAWJUSS?
Is anyone else on team I've-never-made-spinach-and-artichoke-dip before? Raise the roof, my friends.
There's no better time than the present to up your dip game. A little birdie (ahem, Jeff) told me that the Superbowl is in three weeks. That means you have three weeks to be all googly-eyed over this here Vegan Baked Kale and Artichoke Dip before you actually have to make it. And oh, making it is a total breeze!
I'm having a moment or seven with my cast iron skillet. First it was my Peppermint Chocolate Skillet Cookie. (OMG, how have you not made it yet?!) Then it was The Best Shakshuka. And now it's dip! But not just any dip. An epically creamy and satisfying dream dip sent from the dairy-free gods and goddesses. I love me a classic spinach and artichoke dip with cream cheese and parm and all the goods, but this one is fun and unique and more glorious for your ticker because it uses plant-based ingredients like coconut milk and white beans and results in that same velvety yumminess.
HOW DO YOU THEY DOOOOO IT?!
But I can't take credit for this lusciousness. Indeed, this Vegan Baked Kale and Artichoke Dip is one of Ilene Godofky Moreno's creations from her new cookbook, The Colorful Kitchen! Ilene was sweet enough to send me a copy and believe me when I say that it was a complete drool fest.
Her lovely book centers around uncomplicated plant-based recipes for vibrancy inside and out. Speakin' my language! I can't wait to make the Blueberry Basil Lemon Muffins, Spicy Peanut & Kimchi Stew, Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes Fries with Maple PB Sauce, and obviously the Chocolate Cookie Sandwiches.
But wait, there's more! Ilene was sweet enough to offer a FREE copy of her book to one lucky Hummusapien reader! This giveaway is open to US residents only. The giveaway will end Friday, January 19th at 12:00pm EST. The winner will be notified by Sunday evening.

- To prepare the sautéed kale, heat the olive oil over medium high heat in a cast iron skillet. (If you don't have a cast iron skillet, use a regular pan and transfer mixture to a baking dish later). Add onion and garlic and sauté for 5 minutes. Turn the hat off, add the kale, and cook for a few minutes, or until the kale wilts.

Sit me down with this and some warm, crusty sourdough!!! After trying your Spinach Artichoke Pasta I've found I really like artichokes in creamy dishes. That cookbook looks gorgeous! I love when they have lots of colorful photos. I definitely entered this giveaway on Instagram
I don't have Instagram, but I would love to win this cookbook because I'm trying to spend more time looking at books and less time on my phone/computer! There's just something more calming about looking at a physical book.
My husband and I have been working on moving more to a plant based diet, which is difficult for him as a meat-lover! I would love this cookbook to help us!
Jess B says

HI--I am not on Instagram . I am in recovery from Anorexia and am always struggling with "what to eat". Having a book like this would be a great resource!
I'm so excited for you and your journey!! Getting diversity and trying new things is so helpful when you're learning to find food freedom!
Tara | Treble in the Kitchen says
Sounds SOOOO good 🙂 I'm always looking for fun new cookbooks to try 🙂
There's nothing like a good cookbook to spice up your food game!
Jordan Leigh says
No Instagram right now (social media detox ?) but man do I want this cookbook. Any cook book that can keen by all time favorite dip healthy is a cookbook for me!! Gahhhgeous.
Making the dip a little lighter than the traditional version means you'll have more room for dessert! What a dream!
Steph Hochstetler says
I am not on Insta and yet would love a chance to win - my family recently stopped cooking meat at home and could really use a good off-line resource to have on hand. Can't wait to try this recipe!!
I loveee online recipes but there's nothing worse than trying to unlock your phone when you have food all over your hands! Having delish cookbooks on hand is the best!
Cathy Presper says
This cookbook looks amazing! I tagged my daughter in the post 🙂
So sweet! This calls for a mother daughter baking day!!
New to plant-based way of eating. I'm making this dip for the Superbowl crowd at my house. Would love to own The Colorful Kitchen cookbook!
What a delish way to incorporate more plant foods. They'll never guess it's dairy free!
Ramita Bonadonna says
This looks delicious! I'd love to win the cookbook because I'm a foodie that's a vegan-wannabe, which means I want to give up animal products but will NEVER give up flavor!
Never ever skimping on the flavor! Especially with this beauteous dip. Sounds like it's right up your alley!!
Left an Insta comment. Can’t wait to make this....um thinking it will be dinner tonight for the two of us!
So cozy for a night in!
Deb Papesh says
Yummy in the tummy and I just tagged Katie. She has gone through a variety of food avenues in college, including G vegetarian and vegan, and honestly, even though she is no longer vegan we all still enjoy several vegan friendly dishes she creates. This looks like something for her and my cooking Arsenal! Thanks, @hummasapien!
Aren't vegan dishes so fun?! I love experimenting with recipes like this just as much as I enjoy having the regular old version. 🙂 Theee best!
I need to make this asap and I'd LOVE to win a copy of this cookbook! I tagged my sister because we need to have this dip the next time we get together! Thanks for sharing!
Nothing lie a sister sister baking sesh!!

I can almost guarantee it'll knock your socks off. Hope it's love at first bite!!
This looks so creamy and dreamy! I commented on Ig. Fingers crossed! 🙂
I could legit bathe in it!! This cookbook is such a mouthwatering addition to the collection.
I'm not on Instagram, but I would still love a copy of this! I don't eat strictly vegetarian, but I do follow a very heavily plant-based diet as it makes me feel my best. I would love to add this cookbook to my collection!
There's nothing lie turning plants into drool worthy dishes!!
