Spinach & Artichoke Dip with Crudités & Sourdough

by The Culinistas

We’re snowed in and living the cozy life these days, dreaming of dishes that can be eaten by the fireplace, with a big ol’ glass of wine in hand — like our Spinach & Artichoke Dip with Crudités & Sourdough. It’s hot and bubbly and packed with spinach and spices.  

The best part is that this dip pulls double duty: It’s the perfect starter for your Super Bowl festivities, no matter which team you’re rooting for. Later, leftovers work well as a broken sauce for an easy weekday pasta salad.

1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.

3. In a large bowl, mix together artichoke hearts, yogurt, crumbled feta, parsley, oil, za’atar, onion powder & cayenne. Season the mixture with salt & pepper; transfer to a greased 8×8 baking dish. Shingle the thinly sliced feta on top & garnish with za’atar.

4. Bake until bubbly, 25-30 mins; let cool, 5 mins. Serve hot with grilled bread & crudités on the side.
