Equipment

  • Instant Pot

Ingredients

  • 1 10-ounce package (280g) frozen chopped spinach
  • 1 14-ounce can (400g) quartered artichoke hearts rinsed and drained
  • 1 8-ounce package (225g) cream cheese cubed
  • ¾ cup sour cream
  • ½ cup vegetable stock
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 cups mozzarella or cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese

Instructions

  • Dump all of the ingredients in the Instant Pot (except for the cheeses) in the following order: Vegetable stock, frozen spinach, chopped artichokes, garlic, cream cheese, sour cream, and seasonings. You want the cream cheese and sour cream to sit on top.
  • Do not stir. Cover with the lid, and pressure cook on high for 2 minutes.
  • Quickly release the steam, remove the lid and stir in the cheeses (cheddar and mozzarella if using, and parmesan). Mix until the cheeses have melted and you get a creamy dip!

Notes

  • You don't need to thaw frozen spinach before adding it to the pot.
  • You can substitute the sour cream with Greek yogurt to cut down the calories and lighten up the dip.
  • Make sure that you dump in the ingredients in the pot following the order in the recipe card, do not mix before pressure cooking.
  • This recipe was tested in a 6-quart Instant Pot.
  • If you want to make a smaller batch of this dip, I recommend that you use the pot in pot method to avoid getting a BURN message. To do this, use a heat-proof serving dish and place all of the ingredients in it. Insert the trivet in the stainless steel insert and add 1 cup of water. Place the dish with the ingredients on the trivet, and pressure cook. Use kitchen mitts to take the dish out of the pot once it's done cooking.
  • If you have leftovers, reheat them in the microwave and you can serve them with warm cooked pasta.
