Serves: 8Prep time: 10 minutesCook time: 30 minutes


2 Tbsp olive oil

*A super quick way to blanch spinach is to place the spinach in a colander / large metal sieve in the kitchen sink. Boil a kettle of water. Pour the boiling water over the spinach until wilted.

  • Heat olive oil in a medium pan over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and season lightly. Cook until golden brown.
  • Scoop out a large spoonful of golden brown mushrooms for finishing the dip later. Add onion, garlic and chilli flakes. Cook, until softened and fragrant.
  • Add spinach and mix. Reduce heat to very low and add cream cheese and mozzarella. Stir until all the cheese has melted.
  • Switch the heat off. Stir in sour cream.
  • Preheat oven on grill.
  • Scoop dip into an oven safe serving dish.
  • Finish with the reserved mushrooms and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  • Place in the oven and grill until the top is golden brown and the dip is bubbling.
  • Serve with toasted baguette for cheesy dipping.
