Low Carb Spinach and Artichoke Dip

Low Carb Spinach and Artichoke Dip

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

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 Nutribullet/food processor till fine.
