Super Simple Fresh Spinach Artichoke Dip

This creamy dip is a sure crowd pleaser whether you’re having a game night with a few friends or having a cozy family night. Actually we’ve had it as a meal with a fresh loaf of bread and those crunchy little sweet peppers, and been perfectly full and happy.

Prep time: 20 minutes Cook time: 35-40 minutes Serves: 4

Ingredients:

3 T. olive oil, divided 5 cloves garlic, minced 5 c. fresh spinach, long stems removed and roughly chopped 2 T. fresh basil, chopped 1 14.5 oz. jar artichokes, packed in water, drained and chopped 1/3 c. full-fat sour cream ( Greek yogurt can be used as a substitute) 8 oz. cream cheese, softened ¼ c. Parmesan cheese, freshly grated ¾ c. Mozzarella cheese, divided Garlic powder, to taste salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a shallow baking dish with 1 tablespoon olive oil and set aside.

  2. Heat remaining 2 T. olive oil and minced garlic in a large skillet over low heat. Soften garlic for 1 minute before turning the heat up to medium.

  3. Add chopped spinach and basil and season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Cook, stirring occasionally, until spinach wilts, approximately 4-5 minutes.

  4. Transfer wilted spinach mixture to a large bowl and add chopped artichokes, sour cream, cream cheese, Parmesan cheese and ½ cup Mozzarella cheese. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and stir until thoroughly combined.

  5. Transfer spinach-artichoke mixture to the prepared baking dish. Spread the dip into a uniform layer. Top with remaining Mozzarella cheese and place in preheated oven until heated through and cheese on top starts to turn golden brown, approximately 25-30 minutes.

  6. Remove from oven and serve immediately. Can be served with pita chips, crackers, fresh bread, or chopped fresh vegetables.
