Spinach Dip From Scratch

Tuesday, February 12, 2013
Homemade Spinach Dip recipe from scratch is a family favorite at parties. It's easy to make and delicious from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

I have a serious love of Homemade Spinach Dip. It's a must make at any kind of gathering with it's creamy texture dipped with crusty sourdough bread.

I'll be real honest with you right now my husband usually eats half the container before the company arrives and then tries to come up with some lame excuse with a couple of kisses on the cheek, and says  stuff like baby I just loved it a lot.. (I wonder where Mas our 7 year old finds his charm from.) Some how this wins me over every time, dang him one of these days I will stand strong to this manipulation! 

I've used Knorr Vegetable Soup mix in my dip for years along with sour cream and a lot of mayo. So, I set out to come up with a tasty dip minus the soup mix since it contains MSG and to reduce the calories from all the sour cream and mayo.
I used a little turmeric since it has a lot of wonderful healing properties but if you are looking for more of a classic white dip feel free to omit. I won't judge I promise!

Greek Yogurt, worcstershire sauce, mayo, onion, turmeric, garlic powder, celery seed, Italian seasoning to make Homemade Spinach Dip.

  • 3 cups Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 1/2 cup Mayonnaise 
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • 3 tablespoons Dried Onion Flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon Turmeric (this can be omitted if you prefer a whiter dip)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Granulated Garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Celery Seed
  • 3/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian Seasoning

Shredded Carrots Water Chestnuts added to Homemade Spinach Dip base.

Stir in:
  • 3 whole Shredded Carrots
  • 8 ounces Water Chestnuts Chopped

Add spinach to dip mix.

Add 10 ounces frozen spinach thawed and then squeezed dry. 

Stir until well combined and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight to allow flavors to meld. 

Serve Homemade Spinach Dip with crusty sourdough bread, crackers and your favorite veggies.

  1. Looks amazing Serena! I don't think I have ever made spinach dip before, but your recipe definitely makes me want to try. Thanks for sharing :)

    Happy Blogging!

  2. Mm i love spinach, the first picture had me drooling, looks fab, specially with the slices of bread =]

  3. I'm a dip fanatic...can't wait to try this from scratch version!

  4. Love spinach dip! Great idea to use greek yogurt!

  5. Lol, I literally just got done eating my lunch - spinach lasagna rolls, i.e. spinach dip wrapped up in lasagna noodles topped with sauce and baked :) I love the idea of using tumeric, your dip looks divine.

  6. This is a wonderful recipe. My daughter has food sensitivities and we can no longer use the Knorr package. When I asked her what her favorite appetizer was at the holidays she said "spinach dip." I was then on the hunt for a recipe that didn't use anything from a package or a can. We had to leave out the turmeric and the pepper but I don't think we missed it. She was thrilled with the taste and will be even happier next month when the Thanksgiving appetizer table has her favorite.
