Why I Love This Recipe

Adapted from Cooking Light.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 teaspoon olive oil

3 cloves garlic, chopped

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 (10-ounce) package fresh spinach

1/2 cup loosely packed fresh basil leaves

1/3 cup block-style 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, softened

1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

1/3 cup light sour cream

1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese


Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic; sauté 1 minute. Add salt and spinach; sauté 3 minutes. (At first, the spinach will seem to overflow in the skillet, but keep stirring. It reduces in volume as it wilts.)

Transfer cooked spinach mixture to a colander; press until moisture is drained from spinach.

Put spinach, basil, cream cheese and pepper in a food processor; process until smooth. Spoon spinach mixture into a medium bowl; stir in sour cream and Parmesan. Cover and chill.
