IIIIIIIIIIITS BAAAAAACK!!! This was the #1 tested recipe from last year’s #LGFcountdown. Skeptics were turned into believers. Green goodness in a bowl. I’m dipping my chips into this green goodness with my favorite food (and sometimes nemesis) – tortilla chips! They go well with veg sticks as well.

You’re curious, right? You’ve gotta try it!


3 cups chopped broccoli
1 jalapeno, chopped, seeds removed
2 tbs green onions
1 tsp olive oil
2 ounces cottage cheese (or fat free cream cheese, sour cream, something creamy)
1/4 tsp chili powder
1 tbs cilantro
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder


1. Cook the broccoli in lightly salted water until very soft. Overcook the broccoli.

2. Drain broccoli very well.

3. Transfer to a food processor. Add the remaining ingredients and process until smooth, add additional olive oil for a smoother texture.

4. Serve warm
