Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    1 c fat-free cottage cheese
    1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
    1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    1 (10 oz) package frozen spinach (thawed)
    1 can artichoke hearts, drained (about 1 1/2 cups)
    2 cloves garlic (or more to suit your preferences)

Directions

Press the spinach between two plates to remove as much of the water as possible.

Whirl garlic in food processor to chop, add cottage cheese and whirl till almost smooth.

Add spinach and artichoke hearts ... whirl till consistency is however chunky or smooth you like.

Add sour cream (and Parmesan cheese if using) and whirl just enough to blend.

You can then eat this as a cold dip ... *OR* spoon it into ramekins or a casserole dish and bake at 350 F for approx. 15 minutes (or microwave till hot).

If baking, sprinkle a spoonful of the grated Parmesan (if you're adding it) over the top of the dish rather than mixing it all into the dip.

Makes a DELICIOUS hot dip for toasted bagel chips or pita chips!

    fat free greek yogurt is a great substitute to FF sour cream..i actually prefer it. RED ROBIN serves their S & A Dip with diced tomato and red onion on top and celery as a dipper (along with french bread and tortilla chips), but i would go with toasted weight watchers pita bread(cut into triangles). - 8/12/09

    I substituted Fat Free Plain Yogurt for the sour cream and it was a HUGE hit at my party. :) I think next time I'll use fresh spinach, though. It took forever for the spinach to thaw and had I used fresh spinach, I could have just washed it in the salad spinner and thrown it into the blender, too. - 12/30/08

  • I think I'll blended it too well and took out some of the texture, but no one guessed it was low fat! - 1/4/11

  • I found this to be pretty good. The guests at my party loved it!! I thought it was a little dry; I was thinking it would be creamier. I was thinking about using half the spinach next time to see what that might do to the texture. Overall good flavor though. - 1/6/10

  • I love this recipe. I also add in 8 oz of fat free cream cheese. It doubles the servings for the same amount of calories. Excellent! - 3/6/08

  • The FF sour cream I use has fewer calories than Breakstone, so I was able to add some "embellishments" and keep the calorie count virtually the same. I added 1/2 an envelope of Mrs. Grass' vegetable soup mix, increased the sour cream to 3/4 cup, and added 1/4 c. of chopped scallions. DELISH! - 2/22/08

  • I think fresh parmesan cheese is what makes this so yummy. I added a little extra cheese than it called for but justified it by upping the calcium. Very Very GOOD!!!! - 6/27/07

    However, being familiar with many of the full-fat versions, well, I miss the fat! - 6/12/07
