We just dug up our garlic bulbs this weekend, and they smell so awesome! They are drying now in the garage and will then go into storage in dark paper bags to await culinary greatness. This is one recipe that will do justice to them. And the spinach will give you a nice boost to your healthiness, to say nothing of the goat cheese! I really feel you could go with 100% chevre, esp. if you want to cut the fat down by half:)
- 5 oz. frozen spinach
- 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
- 4 oz. goat cheese, softened
- 1/2 head of roasted garlic (directions here)
- Parmesan cheese
- salt and freshly ground pepper
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Thaw and drain the spinach well. Remove the roasted garlic by squeezing the cloves – it should have the consistency of a paste – if it doesn’t, quickly run your knife through the garlic.
Using a spatula, mix the cream cheese, goat cheese and garlic. Fold in the spinach. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Place mixture in an oven safe dish and sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese. Cook for 20-25 minutes or until completely warmed through and the top is golden brown.
