Description

A lighter version of a classic for the Superbowl. This dip is super tasty!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Packed Fresh Basil
  • 10 ounces, weight Fresh Baby Spinach
  • ¾ cups Canned Garbanzo Beans, Drained And Rinsed
  • 6 ounces, weight Cream Cheese
  • 1 cup Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 1 clove Garlic, Smashed
  • 2 Tablespoons Water
  • 1 can Marinated Artichoke Hearts, Drained, Squeezed Dry And Finely Chopped, 14 Oz Can
  • ⅓ cups Fresh Parmesan Cheese, Grated
  • ¾ cups Low-fat Mozzarella, Shredded
  • 1 pinch Cayenne Pepper
  • 3 dashes Worcestershire Sauce
  • ½ teaspoons Kosher Salt, Or To Taste
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • Cooking Spray
  • Baked Chips For Serving

Preparation

Preheat oven to 450 F. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and prepare a bowl of ice water. Stir the spinach and basil into the boiling water and cook until bright green, about 30 seconds.

Remove it from the boiling water with a slotted spoon and immediately plunge in the ice water. Drain and squeeze dry, then roughly chop.

Puree the beans, cream cheese, yogurt, garlic, and water in a blender or food processor until smooth, scraping the sides as needed. Transfer to a medium bowl and fold in the spinach and basil, artichokes, Parmesan and ½ cup mozzarella.

Add the cayenne and Worcestershire sauce, ½ teaspoon of salt, and black pepper to taste. Mist a deep 1 quart casserole dish with cooking spray. Spread the dip mixture in the dish and top with the remaining ¼ cup mozzarella.

Bake until golden and bubbly, 20-25 minutes. If top is not browning properly, you may turn the broiler on high for 1-2 minutes at the end to achieve a golden brown. Keep an eye on this though it will brown quickly!

Serve warm with baked chips or whole-wheat bread.

I really enjoyed this recipe. Ordinary artichoke dip seems a bit too indulgent to me, but this healthier version was right on target. Good flavor and texture without the concern that I was eating something unhealthy. It’s a keeper in my book!
