Spinach Artichoke Dip


This spinach artichoke dip is another of our quick fixes for snacks on weekend afternoons and since it is such a simple recipe I guess I didn't get around to posting it so far... and, it is versatile enough to be adjusted to taste - add as much or as little cheese, more chilies if needed. And, most of the ingredients are out of a box - simply blend together, bake in the oven for a bit and serve sizzling hot.

I like to have it with rustic* tortilla chips or pita chips. But, any ready-made tortilla chips would be fine too...
*rustic, in my case, simply means I tore up some slightly old (high-fiber, low-carb) tortillas or pita pockets, sprayed them with some cooking spray and toasted them in the toaster oven till crisp :)

½ block silken tofu
1 cup chopped frozen spinach, cooked per package and drained
3-4 pickled jalapeno rings
½ cup artichoke hearts
½ cup grated mozzarella and colby jack cheese
salt to taste
chopped spring onions and cilantro for garnish (optional)

Simply blend all but the cheese, stir the cheese in (reserve some for topping), bake in a 400°F oven for about 8-10 minutes till cheese bubbles. Stir well before serving.

Piping hot dip from the oven on a cold wet afternoon with freshly crisped tortilla or pita chips, and some cardamom chai... mmmm... simple pleasures...
