Gluten-Free Baked Spinach Ricotta Dip
This Baked Spinach Ricotta Dip is a modern version of the classic hot spinach dip. The creamy hot dip is made with fresh spinach, ricotta cheese, lemon juice, green onions, garlic, spices and Parmesan cheese.
What I love about this spinach ricotta dip, is the creaminess without the extra calories.
Most dips are made with mayonnaise, cream and heavy cheeses. I believe that you can get the same results with ricotta cheese, and extra seasoning. This hot dip is definitely better for the waistline
quick and easy spinach ricotta dip
If you have company coming and you are busy preparing a delicious meal, setting the table and making sure everything is just perfect, you have less time for appetizers. And let us be honest, typically hot appetizers take almost as much time as the main course.
For this hot dip you will need only ten minutes hands on, and you can make the dip in advance. Once your guests arrive, just pop it in the oven for 15 minutes or so. What takes most of the time is the fresh spinach.
You will need about five minutes to get the fresh spinach ready. Fresh spinach, not frozen makes all the difference in flavour. I find frozen spinach has is watery and tasteless.
So, back to the recipe. First, you have to wilt the spinach and then roughly chop it. Once this is done mix everything together and place it in an oven-proof serving dish. At this point, you can refrigerate the dip.
When ready, bake the dip until hot and bubbling. Keep in mind that if you are going to bake the dip later, allow extra minutes for baking. That is it! The one thing I must stress, for best results, use a good quality ricotta cheese. Done!
Or, I spread it over a toast and enjoy it as a light meal. But, that’s me I just adore this hot dip! Another quick appetizer I often make are the Grain-Free Keto Cheese Chips
