A creamy hot dip of artichokes, spinach, and parmesan
"I made this for a party, and the dynamic of people was the perfect test for this delicous recipe. From meat lovin' veggie haters, to veggie lovin' meat heaters, this dip was a hit. I placed the recipe as a whole on the table, worried I was going to waste most of it, but it was all gone by the end of the party, with everyone commenting on how it is the best they've ever had, and asking for the recipe. I made no changes, though it took a lot for me not to use fresh garlic. But THANK YOU. :)"
1) Boil the Spinach and Artichoke Hearts in two cus of water in a small saucepan over medium heat until tender, about 10 minutes.

suzanneboyerniccum 2y agoNeeds to be a little creamier, and I went with the suggestion to saute rather than boil the artichokes and spinach (which turned out well). But otherwise excellent, and a big hit at Thanksgiving!
Missducky 2y agoInstead of boiling sauté artichoke hearts with fresh garlic and a little extra virgin olive oil, till tender, I like using fresh spinach and adding it to the pan a few mins after adding the artichoke hearts, it's done when spinach is wilted I strain any excess oil and add to my cream cheese and season to tast, It's a huge hit at any party!!

vpitman1 2y agoI skipped boiling the artichokes and spinach-which makes both of them more bland and sucks a lot of the vitamins and minerals out. Just defrost or thaw the spinach, quarter the artichokes, if necessary, and go. I also added 1tsp of lemon juice before mixing in the cream cheese. I used plain artichoke hearts. If you use marinated artichokes, drain well and taste. You may not need the lemon juice. We also used a 4-cheese blend of parmesan, romano, asiago, and provolone. My MIL wanted to bake it and add mozzarella at the end. This was OK, but you could do the same thing by microwaving it, as described, then broiling for a couple of minutes.
Fun_Patrol 2y agoI wouldn't make this again. It just didnt taste good with chips, crackers, bread, anything. Missing a seasoning. And too much artichoke
