Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Wrap garlic cloves in aluminum foil, and bake for 45 minutes, or until soft.
  2. Bring 3 inches of water to a boil in a large saucepan. Add spinach, cover, and cook for about 2 minutes, just until wilted and soggy. Remove from heat and drain.
  3. Mix the garlic, spinach, olive oil, and Romano cheese. In small batches, use a food processor to process to your desired consistency. Transfer to a serving dish.

Easy? Yes. Tasty? No. I didn't like this one single bit. After it was blended it looked like a jar of spinach baby food. I was way to embarrased to even bring it to my family for Thanksgiving Dinner based on looks of the dip all together. I ended up having to go to the store to buy something to bring. If I try again I might try mashing the garlic and chopping the spinach and mixing all the ingredients together instead of blending.

tweaked it - two big handfuls blanched baby spinach (squeezed liquid out), 1/2 pkg herb feta, 1/4 cup parmesan/reggiano, TWO heads of roasted garlic, Tblspoon olive oil, sea salt to taste -- really good on toasted bread, I even spread it on cooked salmon, and dipped roasted potatoes in it, mmmmmmm

I am making this one again for tonight. It is delicious - the roasted garlic is key! I did substitute a little feta cheese only because I was out of the Romano. The spinach does cook down quite a bit so if you need a bigger batch then definitely double or triple the recipe
