Versatile, delicious, and destined to be the table favorite!

Ingredients:

1 small yellow onion, diced1 tablespoon olive oil6 cloves garlic, minced1 (10 oz) bag fresh baby spinach, washed and chopped1 can (14 oz) artichoke hearts, drained and chopped1 small jalapeño, ribs and seeds removed and finely diced1 can (15 oz) cannellini beans, drained and rinsed1-1/4 cup mayonnaise1/2 cup vegetable stock1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese1-1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice1 teaspoon Kosher salt1/2 teaspoon black pepper1 teaspoon mustard powder1 teaspoon celery salt1 cup day old bread, cubed1 tablespoon butter.

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. In a large sauce pan, over medium heat, sauté the onion in the olive oil until soften and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and continue sautéing until fragrant, about 2-3 minutes. Add the chopped spinach, artichoke, and jalapeño and continue to sauté until the spinach wilts and the water has evaporated, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. In a food processor, combine the cannellini beans, mayonnaise, vegetable stock, Parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, lemon juice, salt, pepper, mustard powder and celery salt. Process until the ingredients are smooth and fully incorporated.
  4. In a medium baking dish (we used a 2.5 quart size), combine the white bean puree with the cooked spinach and artichoke. Mix together until evenly incorporated.
  5. Clean and dry the food processor, then add the cubed bread, pulsing into a crumb. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a skillet and add the breadcrumbs, cooking for about 2-3 minutes. Sprinkle bread crumbs on top of the dip, cover with foil or a lid, and bake for 10 minutes. Remove foil or lid and continue baking for an additional 10-15 minutes until the top begins to brown and the dip is bubbling.
  6. Remove from the oven and serve with sliced bread, crackers, and fresh vegetables. TIP: This dip may be prepared and assembled ahead of time, then simply baked right before serving! Leftovers may be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
