Creamy Kale and Corn | Recipe Treasure

With the holidays just around the corner, I’ve been trying my best to eat clean and green but we all know how that’s nearly impossible with family and relatives always dropping by to give season’s greetings along with cookies and chocolates.

Anyways, I’ve been obsessed with kale lately, (well, ever since I recently tried it) and I was trying to combine it with my all-time favorite vegetable, the corn! When eaten together, it didn’t exactly have a pleasant taste so I added yogurt and some other spices to it and viola, it was magical! The sweetness from the corn kernels, the slight bite from the kale mixed with yogurt and whipped cream formed the perfect sabzi/dip to dive right into!
