Spinach artichoke dip Reduced fat modified

Submitted by: HBALDWIN_1

Introduction

This recipe is my secret weapon!!! It is modified w/no fat yogurt and low fat cream cheese . for 6 4oz servings it ended up to be 4 g fat and calorie count is 114! That's great!!! Dietary fiber is almost 5 grams!
Fat is not the enemy, but I have never been short on fat for my daily nutrition. If you reduce fat (at 9 calories per gram) it helps to reduce total calories a day. Eat this recipe with your favorite veggies (no bread) and you will have a great nutritional count at end of day.

Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    9 oz frozen artichoke hearts thawed and diced
    1/2 c frozen spinach thawed and drained
    4 oz neufantel cheese(reduced fat cream cheese)
    6 oz 0% fat greek yogurt plain
    1/2 c grated asiago cheese
    2 tsp salt
    1 tsp garlic powder
    1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
    1 pinch black pepper
    1/2 c cherry tomatoes diced(for garnish on top after cooking)

Tips

I love red bell pepper with this dish, it really brings out the sweetness of the pepper. Try English cucumber cut into sticks, it's really nice. I also eat it with celery (it's just ok but great fiber) and carrots (my least favorite).


Directions

combine all ingredients(but tomatoes) into a saucepan and heat on med/low until heated through. If desired put into a oven safe pan and broil for a few minutes to create "crust" on top, I prefer to eat just the way it is. Add tomatoes to top of dish and serve (with veggies preferrably )

Serving Size: makes 3 huge portions for only 261 cals!!!
