Spinach and cream cheese dip

Ingredients:

  • 1 packet spinach (500 g)
  • 1/4 cup cream (50 g)
  • 1/4 cup parmesan (50 g)

Preparations

  1. Boil the spinach in a saucepan. Before it starts to boil, add salt in a pinch.
  2. When the spinach is cooked, pour off  all the  water.
  3. Then, grate both cheeses. Afterwards, you  put the cheese on one plate, and save some of it on another.
  4. Put the spinach and cream in a bowl and mix well with a hand mixer.
  5. Finely chop the garlic (and possibly the celery) and add to the spinach cream, together with the  grated cheese. Mix again so that all the ingredients are well mixed.
  6. Add a little salt and pepper (as much as you want). Mix again.
  7. Sprinkle some parmesan cheese on top and serve.

This spinach cream can be spread on biscuits, bread, cassava, tortilla chips, nachos, raw vegetables and other snacks. It all depends on your personal taste (and of course what your guests like).

Other varieties of spinach and cream cheese

The American version of this cream is made with cream cheese and less garlic. The celery has been taken out. Instead use:

  • 1 pinch strong pepper
  • Pieces of heart artichoke
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise (40 g)
  • Sour cream (30 ml)

It should be mentioned that  you will need a stove for this version.
