Simple Spinach Dip


6 servings


  • 1 10-ounce package fresh spinach, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 medium shallot, finely chopped
  • ½ teaspoons paprika
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • ¾ cup (or more) heavy cream
  • ½ teaspoons kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese


  1. In a large pot of boiling water, blanch the spinach until softened, about 1 to 2 minutes. Immediately pour the spinach into a strainer and run cold water over the spinach until it is cooled.

  2. Press and squeeze as much liquid out of the spinach as possible with a clean dish towel or paper towels. Roughly chop the spinach.

  3. Melt butter in a medium pan over medium-low heat. Sauté shallot until soft, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in paprika and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

  4. Add spinach, cream cheese, cream, salt and pepper and cook, stirring, until warmed through and slightly reduced, 5 to 7 minutes; add more cream if needed to reach desired consistency.

  5. Top with shredded Parmesan cheese and broil in oven until browned and bubbly.

  6. Serve with a sliced baguette.
