Low Carb Spinach and Artichoke Dip

This rich and creamy, Low Carb Spinach and Artichoke Dip is sure to become a in your house. Made with spinach, artichokes, cream cheese, sour cream, cheese, herbs and spices, it tastes amazing. For low carbers, keto and LCHF, try it served warm with your favorite low carb cracker, or vegetable sticks such as celery, pepper and cucumber. If catering for anyone who isn’t concerned with their carb intake, it would also taste amazing served in a cobb loaf and heated up in the oven, or serve it simply with corn chips or crackers.

Dried Onion vs Fresh Onion

I’ve tried to keep preparation to a minimum with this recipe so it won’t take long to make. If, however you don’t have any onion powder, you could add some gently sauteed onion (about 1/2 an onion) or spring onions/chives, at the start of the recipe, and cook until soft before adding the spinach. Note that I sometimes struggle to find onion powder in Australia, so if I haven’t ordered any from iHerb recently then I buy dried onion from the supermarket and simply blitz it in my Nutri-bullet/food processor till fine.

This recipe is ideal for anyone following a low carb, keto or LCHF way of eating. It’s the perfect dip to serve if you are entertaining but it is also a great dip to have on hand for a healthy snack. Take some to work with some low carb vegetable crudites or low carb seed crackers and you have a healthy and delicious snack or light lunch.
