what you need
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion (about 1/4 medium)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced (1 teaspoon)
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 cups half-and-half
  • 2 packages (9 ounces each) frozen chopped spinach, thawed, well drained
  • 1 can (8 ounces) sliced water chestnuts, drained
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 package (1 ounce) dry vegetable soup mix
  • 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
make it
Preheat oven to 425°F. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir until onion is crisp - tender and garlic is fragrant, 2-3 minutes. Stir in flour; cook and stir an additional minute. Add half-and-half and cook, stirring constantly, until mixture boils and thickens, about 2 minutes.

Remove saucepan from heat. Stir in chopped spinach, water chestnuts, cheddar and vegetable soup mix. Spoon dip into a 1-quart casserole or gratin dish. Sprinkle with parmesan.

Bake dip until it is bubbly and cheese is melted, 10-15 minutes. Serve warm.
It is not necessary to grease the casserole dish because of the high fat content of the cheddar.

Serve this flavorful, savory dip with toasted slices of sourdough bread or with hearty crackers strong enough for scooping.
