When I was working on my Low Carb Spinach Stuffed Salmon Recipe, I was looking for an easy to make spinach and cheese recipe to stuff the salmon with!
I mean who doesn't love spinach dip! I figured it would be easy but I quickly found out that many of the recipes required a lot of ingredients!
And while I love cooking, sometimes you just want something simple!
So again I started playing around with recipes and create this one!
Only 5 real ingredients (2 of them being cheese), then of course spinach, butter and garlic!
If you've followed me for a while then you know I'm a foodie! I don't just like food – I LOVE IT!
I think that's one of the reasons why it was so easy for me to start creating my own recipes!
And like with any other recipe, my goal is to make sure that not only is it delicious and keto friendly, but I also want to make sure that it's easy to make too!
So for this spinach dip I wanted to create a recipe that would be versatile enough that I could make stuffed salmon with it, eat it cold with keto cheese crackers, or put it in the oven to make a nice bubbly cheese dip that I could serve to friends an family as an appetizer!
So after a little testing and lots, and lots of tasting I came up with this simple recipe that takes care of all of the above!
One of the keys to this recipe is using high quality ingredients and that starts with the butter you use!
I'm a HUGE fan of Kerrygold Grass Fed Butter!
I love how yummy it taste and how it brings out the flavor of everything you cook with it… especially vegetables!
So make sure to grab some Kerrygold! It does make a difference!
Now of course you can pick up baby spinach from just about anywhere but the cheese… well that's a different story!
I prefer Philadelphia Cream Cheese because it mixes well and has a nice, creamy consistency!
As a matter of fact, I typically keep at least 4 packages of cream cheese in my house because you can make so many dishes with it and it's a great source of fat!
And the last thing, is the asiago cheese. You can use parmesan cheese but the asiago cheese has a nice, sweet and nutty flavor which works perfectly with the spinach!
The one thing I would advise you to do when making this dish is to make extra because you might find yourself eating more of it then you planned on!
Now making this recipe is simple and easy!
Here's what you need to do:
3. Add the spinach to the cheese mixture and stir well. That's it! Enjoy!
- Chop baby spinach into bite size pieces. Add the spinach, butter, garlic, salt and pepper to a medium saute pan and cook for 5 minutes or until spinach is completely wilted.
- Allow spinach mixture to cool and while it's cooling, add the cream cheese (room temperature) and asiago cheese to a mixing bowl and mix together until it's nice and smooth and there are no lumps.
- Add the spinach mixture to your cheese mixture and mix well. Serve immediately.
- NOTE: Alternatively you can also bake it for 10 minutes at 350 F or until it becomes slightly brown then serve warm.
