Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 BOU vegetable flavored bouillon cube
  • 1 medium white onion, finely chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 (9-ounce) package artichoke hearts, defrosted, rinsed, dried and finely chopped
  • 1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, defrosted, excess liquid squeezed out
  • 1/2 cup fresh part skim ricotta
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper

Preparation

  • 1 Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • 2 Heat the oil in a saute pan over medium heat. Add onions and cook stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes. Add garlic and Bou and cook an additional 3 to 4 minutes, or until onions are light golden. Remove from heat and cool.
  • 3 In the bowl of a food processor combine artichoke hearts, spinach, ricotta, mayonnaise, cream cheese, mozzarella, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Process until smooth. Add cooled onion-garlic mixture to the food processor and pulse a few times to combine.
  • 4 Transfer mixture into an 8-inch glass square baking dish or 9-inch glass pie plate which has been lightly sprayed with cooking spray. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until heated through. Serve with tortilla chips.
