Artichoke and Spinach Dip

If you’ve been round to my house and I’ve made Artichoke and Spinach Dip for you then I must love you because I only share it with people I think are wonderful. Otherwise, I make it just for me and Paul and we eat it in bed with a giant bag of Cool Doritos whilst watching Marvel movies…. yep, we’re that classy. This is a warm, chunky and creamy dip that becomes addictive so apologies in advance.

Iron helps to regulate blood sugar which in turn regulates energy and mood; an essential part of managing depression. SPINACH

240g drained, tinned artichokes
100g fresh spinach
90g cream cheese
35g parmesan
50g grated mozzarella
50g mayonnaise
optional: 4 cloves of roasted garlic

  • Preheat the oven to 190°C (170°C Fan). Drain the artichokes then squeeze them to get ride of as much water as possible then chop into pieces. Either gently wilt the spinach in the microwave or on in a saucepan with a lid then squeeze out the excess liquid.
  • Mix together the soft cheese, parmesan, mozzarella and mayonnaise until blended then gently stir in the artichokes and spinach (and roasted garlic if using).
  • Tip the mixture into a small baking dish (18x10cm) then bake, uncovered, for 20 minutes. Serve with crackers and tortilla chips. Keep any leftovers in the fridge.
