You Spin My ‘Choke Right Round

So I don’t know about you, but I’m a huge spinach-artichoke dip fan. However, store-bought always tastes a little meh to me, and while the restaurant stuff is good, it’s high in calories and not convenient at all to get. So I tried my hand at making some yummy, healthy-lifestyle-ready dip of my own!

Here’s what you’ll need:

DSC_0497 [4958].JPG3 tbsp. Mozzarella Cheese or Cheese Blend

3 tbsp. Plain Greek Yogurt

3 tbsp. Light Mayonnaise

1 tsp Dijon Mustard

Black Pepper

1/2 cup Artichoke Hearts

1/3 cup Chopped Spinach

Chopped Red Onion (I leave the amount up to you)

Oven pre-heated to 350 degrees

  1. Combine your cheese, yogurt, mayo, mustard, and black pepper in a bowl (this can be either the bowl you intend to cook it in or a separate one, but really, why dirty more dishes than necessary?

Obviously not the bowl I cooked it in. Way to take my own advice, right?
2) Chop your artichokes, spinach (unless you’re using frozen like I did, then just make sure it’s thawed), and onion.

It may not look appetizing, but it turns out pretty dang good!
3) Mix your veggies into your yogurt mix.

3b) Sprinkle some more cheese on top. Not a lot, just enough to be melty and nice. Or skip this step altogether.

4) Bake for around 15-20 minutes, until the cheese is melty and it’s heated through.

Honestly, mine could have stood to bake a little longer because of the frozen spinach, but I was ready to eat!
5) Enjoy with your dippers of choice!

I recommend nut crackers!
So 2 tbsp. of this stuff is one serving. I expected this to make 8 servings, but… it may not stretch that far? Either way, if you’re having a party, I recommend doubling or tripling the recipe.
