Spinach & Artichocke Dip

Updated: May 9

Such a classic, easy and satisfying appetizer.

The first time I tried it, was 25 years ago when I moved to Vancouver from Napoli. I believe it was a restaurant called Caramba, and I couldn't believe how good this concoction was!

After that, I attempted to re-create it in my kitchen and I think I nailed it! This is the super simple recipe I created.


INGREDIENTS

๐ŸŒฑ4 cups frozen spinach

๐ŸŒฑ1.5 cups artichoke hearts

๐ŸŒฑ1 onion

๐ŸŒฑ1 red bell pepper

๐ŸŒฑ2 garlic cloves

๐ŸŒฑ3 tbs EVOO

๐ŸŒฑ1 tsp of salt

๐ŸŒฑ500 g cream cheese

๐ŸŒฑ1 cup sour cream

๐ŸŒฑ1 cup mayo

๐ŸŒฑ2 cups shredded cheddar cheese or similar cheese


CROSTINI

๐ŸŒฑ1 baguette

๐ŸŒฑ1/4 cup EVOO

๐ŸŒฑ1/2 tsp salt

๐ŸŒฑ1 tsp garlic powder

๐ŸŒฑoregano


METHOD

Sautรฉ onion, pepper, and garlic until tender. Add chopped artichokes and salt. Cook for a few minutes and add spinach. Cook until spinach renders all the water and turn off the heat. Once the spinach mixture is cool, but not cold, add the rest of the ingredients. Place the dip in a baking dish, top with more cheese, and bake at 375F ยฐfor 25 minutes or until bubbling and golden around the edges.

Slice the baguette into 1 cm thick slices, and place on a cookie sheet. Mix olive oil, salt, and garlic powder. Brush olive oil mixture on both sides of bread slices, and sprinkle with oregano. Bake at 375Fยฐ for 15-20 minutes turning each slice a few times during baking. Serve dip with crostini! Buon Appetito๐Ÿ’š
