Ingredients

  • 12 oz frozen chopped spinach thawed and drained
  • 8 oz plain cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 3 Tbsp traditional hummus
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese shredded
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper optional, if you like spicy

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Prepare a skillet with non-stick cooking spray, and saute frozen spinach over medium heat for 5 minutes, or until completely thawed. Transfer to a fine mesh strainer and press down using paper towels to drain excess liquid.
  • Combine spinach, mozzarella cheese, cream cheese, Greek yogurt, hummus and spices in a large bowl. Mix well.
  • Transfer spinach dip to a glass or ceramic pie dish using a spatula to spread evenly, then top with shredded Parmesan cheese.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until cheese and edges are golden brown. (Mine was ready closer to 15 minutes, but all ovens cook a little differently, so be sure to keep an eye on it!) 
  • Serve hot with whole wheat crackers, pita bread and assorted veggies.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up for 3-4 days.
