About this Dip
This Spinach and Roasted Tomato Dip gives me nostalgia from my childhood. It felt like whenever my mom said we were 'cleaning out the fridge', spinach dip was made. But that was hardly a bad thing. Actually it was a delicious one!
Spinach Dip such a simple, cozy dish that is a perfect appetizer - football Saturdays, potlucks, or just around your kitchen table, surely to be loved by all. This one takes a little twist with the addition of roasted tomatoes and is lightened up with some greek yogurt instead of loads of mayo or cream cheese.
Try it with some toasted pita, crisp veggies, spread on a sandwich, or no judging, with a spoon! And if you're looking for more warm and cheesy dips, also try this Healthy Buffalo Chicken Dip, Whipped Dill Feta Dip, this Avocado Crack Dip, or this Baked Cheddar Jalapeño Dip that I think you'll love, too.
- Cheese: I used parmesan and feta, but this recipe is meant to be a clean out the fridge recipe, so use whatever you've got. White cheddar, gouda, pepper jack, anything will do!
- Plain greek yogurt: Gives some tang and is also perfectly creamy. I used 2% low fat because it's what I had. Sour cream is also an option or cream cheese, too.
- Spinach: That wilted spinach in the back of your produce drawer waiting desperately to be used. Yeah put it in this dip.
- Tomatoes: When baked, the acidity in the tomatoes is just enough. They caramelize and work beautifully in this dip.

How to Make This Recipe
This recipe is so easy and comes together in just a few steps.
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Mix cheeses, yogurt, and seasonings.
- Then fold in chopped spinach and tomatoes (no need to slice the tomatoes).
- Layer into oven safe dish, top with additional cheese if desired, and bake for 30 minutes.
- To finish it off, broil for 3-5 minutes or until cheese is golden.
- Serve with choice of crackers, toasted bread, veggies or just eat it by the spoon.
Store extras in an air-tight container or leave it in its baking dish and cover with plastic wrap or foil and keep in the refrigerator for up to three days. Reheat in a microwave safe bowl in 30 second intervals, or you can also enjoy it cold!
This dip is tasty with crackers, tortilla chips, toasted bread, veggies or just eat it by the spoon. For toasted bread, my favorite way to make it nice and crispy: Cut up slices of fresh bread, toss with some olive oil, Italian seasoning / salt + pepper, and broil at 525°F for 5 minutes or until bread is golden brown.
I also like to spread this dip on top of grilled chicken, as a sandwich condiment, or between tortillas and grill it up like a tortilla.
I recommend raw spinach for best results, but if frozen is all you have, you can thaw in the microwave, then squeeze between paper towel to remove excess liquid. Doing this is essential so you don't end up with a watery dip.
I used tomatoes because that's what I had in my fridge, but don't stop there. Canned artichokes or jarred roasted bell peppers are both fabulous additions to this dip (be sure to drain them!). You could also try adding some diced white onion or chopped celery for some crunch.
