Ingredients

  • 8 oz cream cheese 1 block at room temperature
  • 10 oz frozen spinach thawed and drained
  • 14 oz artichoke hearts 1 can, drained and roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise (can use light version)
  • 1/4 cup greek yogurt (or, sour cream)
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese shredded
  • 1/2 cup mozarella cheese shredded
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder (or, 1 clove, crushed)
  • 1 pinch salt (can skip)

Optional Topping for Browning

  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese shredded

Instructions

Prep

  • Thaw spinach at room temperature, or in the microwave.  (I use the 'frozen vegetable setting).  Wrap the thawed spinach in couple of paper towels and squeeze a few times, till all or most of the water is drained.  Keep aside.  Drain the artichoke hearts.  Remove the outer leaves, if they look chewy.  Roughly chop the artichoke hearts.

Assemble

  • Add all the ingredients in an oven safe bowl and mix to combine.  Cover with aluminum foil.  You can now cook it in an Instant Pot, OR, bake it in the oven.
