Being sensitive to casein does not allow me to indulge in this wonderful dip. Oh well! Also aren’t those chips made of corn a no-no?
Healthy Spinach Artichoke Dip
This spinach artichoke dip recipes reminds me of my old days (and ways). We’d go out on a Friday night, have a beer or two, and some deliciously unhealthy appetizers. When I first started this diet I felt very sorry for myself and mourned (a lot) over the food I was giving up. And that food was a long list! Wheat, corn, peanuts, anything with yeast and most sugars. But the more I started to experiment with food (and replacements for junk food) the more I became amazed at the large variety of food choices. This is one recipe we have been making on football Sunday’s lately.
I wish I could take total credit for this delicious recipe but I found it in the book “Cooking your way to good health” by Doug Kaufmann. I did however put my own spin on it and added real garlic. Garlic is a proven antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal not to mention there is almost no better flavor in the world. I also used less cream cheese and more yogurt. If you are following the Doug Kaufmann diet, this would be considered Kaufmann 1.

Spinach Artichoke Dip
- 6.5 oz Artichoke hearts (drain and slightly chop them)
- 2 cups Spinach (fresh and chopped) not frozen
- 3 cloves Garlic
- 1 tbsp Olive oil
- 4 oz Cream cheese
- 1 cup Greek yogurt (plain, no sugar added- I use Stonyfield organic greek yogurt)
- 1/2 tsp Crushed red pepper flakes
- 1/4 tsp Salt
- pinch Garlic powder
- pinch Black pepper
- Chop garlic.
- Add olive oil in skillet over medium heat.
- Once skillet is hot, sauté garlic until slightly golden brown.
- Add chopped spinach and artichoke until spinach is wilted.
- Add in cream cheese and all other ingredients EXCEPT for yogurt.
- Once mixture is warm, take off stove and put in bowl. Then add the yogurt. I like to add the yogurt once the mixture cools a little bit since yogurt may loose it's probiotics when heated. Enjoy!
