Roasted Garlic Spinach & Artichoke DipSunday, February 03, 2013
From our skinny table to yours...
Looking for a healthy game day snack? Well you came to the right place! We are making a super healthy and super delicious Roasted Garlic Spinach & Artichoke Dip today. While you may think all spinach and artichoke dips must be healthy because it's a veggie dip, that is simply not the case. We were shocked when we did our research. Most restaurants serve this appetizer up for 1,000 calories PER SERVING. That is unheard of so we went to work in the kitchen to make something equally as delicious, yet not compromise our waistlines!
For starters the 'cream' sauce in this dish comes simply comes from 1 cup skim milk, to 1/4 cup both parmesan and reduced fat mozzarella cheese! Add the calories up there and we are looking at only about 250 calories! Now this is the whole dish, compared to the restaurants per serving version. Don't worry taste is not compromised here and there is certainly no need to feel guilty about this game day snack!
This is a quick and easy treat to make too. We simply saute up a little white onion with fresh spinach and the artichokes. Then we mix in our 'cheesy' sauce and top it off with the roasted garlic. The roasted garlic adds a nice subtle garlic flavor, but if you're short on time simply mince up a few cloves to knock off about 25 minutes :) Pop this dish in the oven, lunge your way over to the couch and get ready for the perfect game day snack!
