A skinny version of the classic Spinach & Artichoke Dip with roasted garlic and red peppers!
Let’s play a game.
The game where you come over to help me clean the house and I feed you in spinach dip.
It’s a win-win situation.
You get to stuff your face with some pretty delicious roasted garlic dip with a touch of spinach and I get to kick my feet up and enjoy the glory of a clean house. Happy girl right here.
It’s that time. Spring! Everyone’s talkin’ about it incase you are living under a rock. The birds chirping, flip flops are being dusted off and shorts are appearing on extremely pale legs. Not pretty.
While I adore every aspect I mentioned above, it usually means a good ol’ cleaning is in order as well. Shake things up a bit, bring out the spring decorations and open up the windows. Let the fresh air in! It’s refreshing and just puts a lil pep in everyone’s step.
You know what else puts a lil pep in everyone’s step? Food. Lots of it.
Specifically this roasted garlic, spinach and artichoke dip.
Oh my heavens.
The roasted garlic is my favorite part. I adore anything with garlic…especially roasted garlic. I will add it just about anything. Except my nightly dessert. That’s pushing it.
Roasted garlic is a cinch to make if you have never ventured to make it. It fills up your house with this insanely caramel aroma and adds such a depth of flavor to any dish.
This dish is not short on garlic flavor. But not in the ‘better not get close to anyone’ sense. I wouldn’t do that to you!
I lightened up the cream base as I did in my Cajun Alfredo Skillet and I was incredibly shocked with how addicting it was. Cottage cheese and almond milk are blended together then heated with nutty and salty parmesan to make a lick-off-the-spoon delicious sauce.
And what is a dip without its accomplice? Fresh, homemade pita chips are the bomb. Brushed with a bit of olive oil and garlic (didn’t think I would leave it out, did you?) then baked until crisp. They are addicting. As in I want to eat them with everything from my morning eggs, to salads, to right along with dinner.
Now that I have you won over…how about our deal? I will be waiting!
