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 rich cheeses. However, I believe that you can get the same results with ricotta cheese and the right seasoning. This low-carb hot dip is undoubtedly better for the waistline!
quick and easy spinach ricotta dip recipe,
If you have company coming and you are busy preparing a delicious meal, setting the table and making sure everything is perfect, you have less time for appetizers. And let us be honest, typically, hot appetizers take almost as much time as the main course.
the simple details…
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 preparing the fresh spinach. Or, you can try our delicious keto hot pizza dip.
Spinach is a nutritionally packed leafy green plant. Spinach is rich in iron, vitamin C and E, potassium, magnesium and fiber. One cup of cooked spinach contains 4 grams of fiber. And the best part, 1 cup of spinach contains only 41 calories.
using fresh spinach gives the dip the best flavour and texture,
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 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 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 once you refrigerate the dip, allow extra minutes for baking.
That is it! The one thing I must stress is using a good quality ricotta cheese for the best results. If you are adventurous, make homemade ricotta. 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 is the Grain-Free Keto Cheese Chips
