Ingredients

  • 2-3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 leeks white and light green parts only, thinly sliced (1 1/2 cups)
  • 8 ounces brussels sprouts stemmed, halved, and shaved thinly (about 10 brussels sprouts)
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup Vegenaise or mayo
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper or more if you like things spicy
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3/4 cup grated cheese*

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a cast iron or other skillet, heat the 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat. Add the leek, brussels sprouts, and garlic, and saute until softened, about 5-8 minutes. If the skillet gets too hot, decrease the heat to medium low to prevent burning. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the Vegenaise or mayo, Greek yogurt, and cayenne pepper with salt and pepper, to taste, then stir in the cheese. Add the brussels sprout mixture, reserving a couple of tablespoons for the top, if desired, and stir to combine.
  • Bake for 30 minutes until bubbly and beginning to turn golden brown, and place the remaining 2 tablespoons on top in the center to caramelize. Bake 5-10 more minutes, until the edges are crispy and the top is golden brown.
  • Serve warm with crackers or tortilla chips, and enjoy!

Notes

  • *I used a Mexican cheese blend for this dip, but you can use your favorite cheese or cheese blend. This would be equally delicious with Gruyere and parmesan!
