Spinach Dip

Spinach Dip
I love, love spinach dip but the traditional spinach dip is loaded with cheese and heavy cream.  This recipe still has great flavor and also a healthier choice.
Spinach Dip


15 oz. can of Cannellini Beans

Juice from one lemon (about 3 tablespoons)

Tablespoon of minced garlic

2 tablespoons of hot sauce

½ teaspoon of salt

½ teaspoon of pepper

½ lbs. of frozen spinach

2 tablespoons of olive oil

¼ cup of parmesan cheese (optional for topping you can leave it out and have this dish dairy free)

5 whole wheat shells

Pre heat oven to 400 degrees

Cut shells into chip size (using pizza cutter) take 1 tablespoon of olive oil and coat chip with oil. Place on cookie sheet and bake for 15 minutes (flipping after 7 minutes).

Spinach Dip

Place first 6 ingredients in food processer and blend well.  Take a small nonstick pan placing 1 tablespoon of olive oil and frozen spinach warming up spinach and incorporating olive oil with it. After about 5 minutes add to the pureed dish and stir. Top with parmesan cheese, serve either warm or cold and stores well up to 6 days.
