On this page I’m sharing the recipe for this creamy Spinach Artichoke dip. It’s perfect finger food and a great snack for a movie night at home. The dip is super creamy, and because it has spinach and artichoke in it, you’ll be eating vegetables without noticing it. Get some nice crackers, for example garlic flavored ones, and you can dip all night long!
I first tasted a spinach artichoke dip when I was on vacation on Sint Maarten and we were invited to a pot-luck pool party. Someone brought this dip and I loved it! I think I ate half the bowl. When I came back home I decided that I wanted to create a recipe for it. The trick is to get it nice and creamy. I think I managed by combining cream cheese and sour cream and by using two kinds of cheese.
Recipe creamy spinach artichoke dip
200 grams cream cheese
125 grams sour cream
2 cloves garlic
1 can artichoke hearts (390 grams)
200 grams spinach
100 gram grated Italian cheese
100 gram Pecorino Romano
A pit of pepper
Bread, crisps or toast to dip
Pre-heat the oven to 200°C.
Mix the cream cheese and the sour cream in a big bowl. Crush the garlic cloves and add them to the cream cheese. Cut the artichoke hearts in big pieces and coarsely chop the spinach. Stir both through the cream cheese mixture. Grate or crumble the Pecorino Romano cheese. Stir both cheeses through the mixture. Add pepper to taste.
Pour the mixture in an oven proof dish and bake for about 30 minutes.
Serve the creamy spinach-artichoke dip with bread, crisps or toasts.
