PostHeaderIcon Dippity-Do-Da: Spinach-Parmesan Dip

Spinach-Parmesan Dip

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 (10-ounce) package fresh spinach
  • ½ cup fresh basil leaves, loosely packed
  • 1/3 cup block-style 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/3 cup light sour cream
  • ¼ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic, and sauté 1 minute. Add the salt and spinach, and sauté 3 minutes. At first, the spinach will seem to overflow in the skillet, but keep stirring. It reduces in volume as it wilts.

Place the spinach mixture in a colander, and press until moisture is drained from spinach. Put spinach, basil, cream cheese and pepper in a food processor, and process until smooth. Spoon spinach mixture into a medium bowl, and add sour cream and Parmesan cheese. Cover and chill.
