As I've lamented before,myupbringing was heavy on the millet,light on the fast food.这显然是事后诸葛亮。But at the time it lit a deep anthropological passion in me to try every breaded piece of chicken,1/4-inch thick burger patty,以及我们伟大的土地必须提供的炸土豆（5分钟或更少）。
一旦我拿到驾照，and spent some quality"me time"on the interstate outside New York City,I made my way through most of my hit list of chain restaurants.但一旦我上了大学，遇到了一些阳光明媚的加州新朋友，I realized there was a whole other world of fast casual establishments that I had yet to sample.
California Pizza Kitchen was among the most mythic.My friend Ali almost had a seizure when she heard I'd never been to CPK.所以那年寒假我去看望她时，这是我们在这个城市烹饪之旅的第一站（很快就进进出出）。
She waited eagerly as I tried my first slice of BBQ Chicken Pizza,当我试图抑制疲惫的纽约人在我心中的想法时…”这个吗?披萨？"I liked it.我是说，it's sweet,savory and cheesy,so what could go wrong.
Where I fell hard and fast though was the spinach artichoke dip.It was thick and creamy and made out of all the white condiments I wasn't supposed to have (sour cream,cream cheese,还有一点点the white condiment这是我母亲健康享乐主义（梅奥）的核心。188博金宝网页
所以当我拿到我朋友伊琳的新书的早期副本时，,五颜六色的厨房,and saw a vegan gluten-free version of my favorite dip—with kale,no less!-这是我第一件要做的事。
羽衣甘蓝和洋蓟蘸酱的味道很浓，luscious creaminess from a mixture of white beans,椰子奶和营养酵母。它很快就结合在一起，可以在一个平底锅里开始完成。Be warned: the resulting bubbling hot dip is enough to feed and army,and so dangerously delicious you might inhale the entire pan yourself.But both of those factors makes it the perfect addition to a 188博金宝网页healthy holiday party spread.
