  • 1 cup packed fresh basil
  • 3/4 cup canned cannellini beans drained and rinsed
  • 6 ounces Neufchatel cream cheese
  • 1 clove garlic smashed
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • One 14-ounce can artichoke hearts drained, squeezed dry and finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 cup shredded low-fat mozzarella cheese
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 2 to 3 dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Kosher salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450.
  • Add a sprinkle of salt to a pot of water, bring to a boil.
  • Prepare a bowl of ice water, set aside.
  • Stir spinach and basil into the boiling water and cook for about 30 seconds, or until leaves are bright green.
  • Remove leaves with a slotted spoon and immediately plunge in the ice water. Drain and squeeze dry, then roughly chop.
  • Add beans, cream cheese, garlic, chicken broth, cayenne, Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and black pepper (to taste) to a wide-bottom blender container.
  • For Blendtec: Select VARIABLE, Speed 2 and blend for 10-15 seconds.
  • For Vitamix: Select VARIABLE, Speed 1. Turn machine on and slowly increase speed to VARIABLE, Speed 10/HIGH for 20-30 seconds.
  • Add spinach and basil, artichokes, parmesan and 1/2 cup mozzarella to the container and pulse* until ingredients have been roughly incorporated.
  • Mist a deep 1-quart casserole dish with cooking spray. Spread the dip mixture in the dish and top with the remaining 1/4 cup mozzarella, or an additional 1/4 cup of grated parmesan.
  • Bake until golden and bubbly, 20 to 25 minutes. Serve warm with baked chips or pita.
