In a large bowl, mix:
1 box frozen chopped spinach defrosted & drained really well, squeeze tightly.
1 cup of low fat mayonnaise
1 8oz package of 1/3 less fat cream cheese (room temperature)
12oz jar of whole artichokes, chop them up
1/2 cup of fresh parmesan cheese + a little more for the topping
3-4 large cloves of garlic-chopped really well or microplaned into the bowl (great way to add flavor especially when there is less fat that we talked about here)
1/2 teaspoon of cracked black pepper
Drizzle of extra virgin olive oil-another way to add healthy flavor.
Mix all the ingredients together, spread into a baking dish, sprinkle top with extra parm cheese and drizzle a little extra virgin olive oil on top of that.
Bake in a 400 degree oven for 40 minutes, then turn oven to broil and brown the top for 5-6 minutes until golden and crispy.
I choose to serve the spinach artichoke dip with low fat whole grain tortilla chips or I will make my own healthy pita chips in the oven. Find out how to make these very simple chips right here.
