I had some great garlic bulbs from our CSA so I decided to make Avocado Garlic Cream Sauce, but just make it more of a dip and less of a sauce. I checked on the family, as they were in the back yard enjoying their shenanigans in the hammock and I saw the kale. Perfect! That will make it more of a dip. Since I didn't want to have the oven going for awhile roasting a garlic bulb, I simply cooked it with the kale.
The outcome was amazing. A little too amazing. I ate almost the whole thing, sharing a touch with Paul, and didn't want to eat anything else I made that day because I was too full! Oh well, my taste buds were happy.
Garlicky Kale and Avocado DipMakes 1 1/2 cup

Remove stems and chop kale into smaller pieces. Heat up olive oil in a pan and add the garlic and cook for a minute until it starts to brown. Add in kale and cook until it is nicely wilted.
Add all ingredients into your food processor and puree until smooth. Serve immediately or cover tightly and put in the refrigerator until ready.
