NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 1 head garlic, top end cut off
  • 1 spray olive oil cooking spray
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 large sweet onion, sliced (recommended: Vidalia)
  • 1 (10-ounce) box frozen spinach, defrosted and drained
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 (14-ounce) can chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons light cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Directions
  • Preheat oven 350 degrees F.

  • Place garlic on a piece of aluminum foil and lightly spray the garlic with olive oil cooking spray once. Wrap aluminum foil around the garlic to form a tight package. Roast for 45 minutes. Once garlic is cool enough to handle, remove from aluminum foil and set aside.

  • In a nonstick 10-inch saucepan, heat 1 teaspoon olive oil over medium-high heat. Add onions and saute until translucent, about 1 1/2 minutes. Add spinach and nutmeg and saute for 1 minute. Add chicken broth and bring to simmer; simmer for 1 minute. Pour mixture into a food processor, and then squeeze the garlic cloves from the head of roasted garlic, discarding the skin. Add all remaining ingredients. Pulse until creamy. Serve warm.
