If Popeye were to visit RJA, he’d find himself in good company. Even those RJA kids who get hives a the thought of green veggies learned that they actually DO enjoy spinach!

This month, they enjoyed spinach lasagna, spinach salad…and even spinach yogurt and pancakes! (We know! We were surprised, too! But the kids loved them!)
This week, the students planted spinach seeds in the garden with Chef Matt…and then made their own spinach artichoke dip. Mmmm…it was delicious. Did you get to taste it? If not, here’s the recipe. You can make it at home!

Spinach Artichoke Dip
– 1/4 cup sour cream
– 1 package cream cheese (softened)
– 8 ounces of Fresh Spinach
– 1 ounce Parmesan cheese
– 1/2 cup artichoke hearts
– 1 tsp salt
– 1/2 tsp pepper
– 1/2 Tbs garlic salt

Chop spinach and artichokes. Whip softened cream cheese with mixer until light and fluffy. Add 1 ounce of olive oil to saute’ pan over medium heat. Saute’ spinach until soft. Add to cream cheese. Add the Parmesan, artichokes and seasonings. Stir until combined. Fold in sour cream. Serve with tortilla chips, fresh cut veggies.
