Spinach and Artichoke Dip; Cheesy yet Healthy!
You would always have fussy eaters at the table; some would complain about the bland salad or the chicken they cannot eat because they just went all plant-based. To satisfy so many people with different tastes can be a challenge; however, with a healthy and delicious dip that makes every food praise-worthy, there is no chance you would ever hear anyone complaining.
It is hard to trace back spinach and artichoke dip to a particular cuisine because they are a part of every culture as versatile as it is. You can either cook it or bake it, and it will taste equally good with any dish such as Chicken Lettuce Wraps or a Steak Recipe.
This particular dip can be a game-changer, or should I say, taste changer for many food dishes such as:
- For weight watchers who want to make their Kale Salad Recipe interesting.
- Make your family eat healthy by adding this dip to a Kale Baby Food or even a Kale Bread Recipe.
- Once you fall head over heels with this recipe, there are other dips, such as Yard House Spinach Dip, waiting to get on your table!
BJ’s Spinach and Artichoke Dip Recipe’s Calories and Nutritional Value
Don’t get overboard with junk food consumption, but nothing can go wrong with all the good calories!
Any dip is usually rich in calories, and that is a common offsetting point for healthy eaters. Nevertheless, what if I tell you that this particular recipe has been tampered with to make it high on taste and low in calories by using low-fat cream cheese or non-fat Greek yogurt.
High in minerals and vitamins like sodium, potassium, iron, and vitamin A, the spinach and artichoke dip has a low amount of sugars and cholesterol, with only 70 calories in a single serving (that is about 2 tbsp- more than enough for a one-time meal)
What to Serve with Spinach and Artichoke Dip?
Well, to be honest, I love including dips and sauces in my regular meals. And, I guess, I am not alone! Every savory dish is just better with spinach and artichoke dip, made with either cheese or sour cream. As a few top mentions, you can pair it up with the Garlic Spinach Pizza or Cheesy Spinach Artichoke Bread, etc.
Can you Store the Spinach and Artichoke Dip?
The best part about dips and sauces is that they can sit in your fridge for as long as you like, without any complaints!
However, if you are trying to bake the dip recipe, store the prepared mix and bake it just before serving; that way, it will last longer. For example, for spinach and artichoke dip it can stay good in an air-tight jar in the refrigerator for about 5-7 days, and in the freezer for a couple of months.

With a dip, every bite is a treat!
BJ’s Spinach and Artichoke Dip can be served as dinner or lunch; I would not even complain about having it with my Casseroles or Orzo Spinach Salad in the breakfast, because a foodie never misses a chance to eat good food.
