Cheesy Spinach Dip With Chia Seed Crackers

Get ready for a big hit – as this dish is soooooo easy, really forgiving (meaning if you stuff up, it still works!) and the dip can be used as a dip with veges, these crackers or in savoury pinwheel scones or as a stuffing for stuffed chicken breasts! I’M NOT EVEN KIDDING!!! Seriously, this is so good, you may cry. OK: Let’s go.

Crackers (do this first, then prep the dressing)

  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup hot water
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp dried cumin
  • Salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 200 degrees celsius

Soak chia seeds in water for 10 mins, stirring occasionally, till gluggy

Add paprika, cumin, salt, pepper, almond meal and olive oil and mix till mixture forms a ball

Cover a baking tray with grease proof paper and place mixture on top

Cover with another piece of baking paper and roll out till thin

Remove top layer of baking paper and bake in the over for about 15 minutes or till golden

Remove from oven and cut through while hot. Separate, flip. Switch off the oven and place the tray back into the oven to dry out

Cheesy Dip

  • 1/2 a bag of The Fresh Grower Spinach OR 2-3 cups of firmly packed spinach
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2-4 cloves of garlic (depending on how much you love garlic!!)
  • 2 heaped teaspoons, or quarter of a standard container of cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup of shredded mozarella
  • Salt and pepper

(Like I said, this recipe is super forgiving, so adjust the quantities to suit your taste)

Heat oil in a pan on a medium high heat

Grate garlic into oil

Wash spinach and place in pan. Wilt

Add cream cheese and mix through till melted

Sprinkle cheese and melt through

Pour mix into a bowl and using a stick blender or a masher, blend till mixed through

Pour into a serving bowl and serve on a platter with your chia seed crackers, cherry tomatoes and deli meats!
