I’m a huge fan of spinach and artichoke dip, but recently I’ve been trying to eat foods that are better for me. Not that spinach and artichoke dip is inherently bad for you, but the amount of tortilla chips I eat when I have it is not very good for me! I decided to create this recipe for a low-fat spinach and artichoke galette so I can enjoy the great taste of spinach and artichoke dip without all the calories I’d typically consume.
For this spinach and artichoke galette recipe I used low fat cream cheese, low fat greek yogurt, and low fat mozzarella cheese. It’s still full of ooey gooey cheesy goodness – just with less fat! I’m sure you could find a low/reduced fat puff pastry as well, or even make your own!
Speaking of puff pastry, did you know that there are no added leavening agents? No eggs, no baking soda, no baking powder. Puff pastry gets it’s rise from the steam that’s created when the layers of butter melt. Puff pastry has anywhere from 500-700 layers by the time it’s done being laminated, which is why it’s so nice and flakey!
Some day I’ll do a tutorial for homemade puff pastry, but today is not that day. Store bought puff pastry is great when you don’t have extra time to make it from scratch. It’s not super difficult to make, however it is pretty time consuming! The low-fat spinach and artichoke galette I made and photographed for this post was made with the Pepperidge Farm brand puff pastry sheets. It turned out wonderfully!
