artichoke and spinach dip

To make this creamy dip you need:

  • 250g spinach chopped (thawed if frozen)
  • 400g artichoke hearts drained and chopped
  • 250ml heavy cream
  • 100g cream cheese
  • 2 cups Emmental cheese (divided)
  • 1 big onion finely diced
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • salt to taste

In a pot cook the onion and garlic with the spinach for 3-4 minutes. Put the heat off and mix in the artichoke, cream, cream cheese, salt and one cup of the Emmental cheese. You can use mozzarella if you wish a milder taste.

Pour the mix in a baking dish, sprinkle over the remaining cup of cheese and bake on 200°C in the oven for 30 mins or until it’s bubbly and the cheese is golden brown.
