Ingredients

Kosher salt

1 10-ounce bag baby spinach

1 cup packed fresh basil

3/4 cup canned cannellini beans, drained and rinsed

6 ounces Neufchatel cream cheese

1 clove garlic, smashed

1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth

1 14-ounce can artichoke hearts, drained, squeezed dry and finely chopped

1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

3/4 cup shredded low-fat mozzarella cheese

Pinch of cayenne pepper

2 or 3 dashes Worcestershire sauce

Freshly ground black pepper

Nonstick cooking spray

Baked chips, for serving

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and prepare a bowl of ice water. Stir the spinach and basil into the boiling water and cook until bright green, about 30 seconds. Remove with a slotted spoon and immediately plunge in the ice water. Drain and squeeze dry, then roughly chop.
  2. Puree the beans, cream cheese, garlic and chicken broth in a food processor until smooth, scraping the sides as needed. Transfer to a medium bowl and fold in the spinach and basil, artichokes, parmesan and 1/2 cup mozzarella. Add the cayenne, Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and black pepper to taste.
  3. Mist a deep 1-quart casserole dish with cooking spray. Spread the dip mixture in the dish and top with the remaining 1/4 cup mozzarella. Bake until golden and bubbly, 20 to 25 minutes. Serve warm with baked chips.
