Number of Servings: 20

Ingredients

    1 package (10 ounces) frozen spinach
    1 bag (14 ounces) frozen artichokes
    1 8 ounce packages light cream cheese
    1 8 oz. Chobani plain,non-fat Greek yogurt
    1/2 cup water chestnuts
    1 T lemon juice
    1 small onion, minced
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    1/3 c parmesan cheese
    1/2 t red-pepper flakes
    1/2 t oregano
    salt, pepper to taste
    nonstick cooking spray
    (Optional garnishes: minced red bell pepper or chopped tomatoes)

Tips

Fat-free cream cheese lacks the satisfying creaminess you crave in this recipe. Do not use it.
This can also become a decadent pasta sauce. (As a sauce, it makes 10 servings. You might need to thin it a bit with cooking water from the pasta.)


Directions

Spray a medium pot with nonstick cooking spray. Add garlic and onions and cook over medium heat until they're translucent, about five minutes.
Put thawed and drained frozen spinach* in food processor and pulse a few times to chop. Add artichokes and pulse a few more times. The mixture should be chunky. Add spinach,artichokes & Water chestnuts along with cream cheese, oregano, red pepper and lemon juice. Heat until bubbly, then add parmesan cheese,yogurt, salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
Garnish with chopped red bell pepper or chopped tomatoes. (Calories not included.)
Makes 20 servings of about 2 Tablespoons.
Serve with vegetables or baked chips.

*Don't worry about getting the spinach completely dry. The extra moisture will help thin the dip.
