Servings: 8 servings
- 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
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.
