The second dip that Minoo prepared in the South Arm Community Kitchen is a Creamy Spinach Dip.
This Creamy Spinach Dip is made with fresh spinach unlike the one that I made with frozen chopped spinach which has a coarser texture . You can serve this dip with pita chips or crunchy vegetables or spread it on a sandwich.
- 1 small shallot, peeled and roughly chopped
- 1 x 5-ounce can water chestnuts, rinsed
- 1/2 cup cream cheese
- 1/2 cup cottage cheese
- 1/4 cup plain yogurt
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon salt
- freshly ground black pepper to taste
- 6 ounces baby spinach
- 3 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

Tips: try to drain the excess liquid from the yogurt so that the dip is less liquidy; You can strain the yogurt over cheesecloth overnight to get a thicker consistency. Greek yogurt will be a good substitute.
