I love spinach and artichoke dip, but I really want to stay on a healthy eating plan. I decided to give it a try using as little fat as possible. What I came up with was pretty darned good too!! My family devoured it!
Here’s how it scored – Based on a 1/4 cup serving (and let’s be real, we don’t eat one or two tablespoons – even 1/4 is a modest serving). I compared it to the recipe from Alton Brown and the New York times, both of which used more ingredients and didn’t taste much different!

What you need:
- 1 14oz can of artichokes (in water)
- 1 cup cooked spinach
- 1 cup grated fresh parmesan cheese

- Salt and Pepper to taste
How to Do it:
Put everything into a food processor
and process until it’s all smooth.
Add the salt and pepper to taste and place in an oven proof casserole dish.
Bake in a 350 degree, preheated oven for about 20 minutes, or until it’s bubbly and the cheese is melted.

Note – this can be made ahead and reheated in the microwave!
