Bite-size spinach dip cups recipe

Yields 12


  • 24 wonton wrappers
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions, divided use
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 package (1.4-ounce) vegetable dip mix (like Knorr)
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach leaves
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 6 ounces plain Greek yogurt


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Layer 2 wonton wrappers and press into each cup of a muffin tin. Bake for 5-6 minutes or until the tips of the wonton wrappers begin to brown. Remove from oven and reserve, leaving in muffin tin.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet. Saute the shallot, garlic and half of the green onions until softened. Add the salt, pepper and thyme and stir in baby spinach. Cook until spinach is wilted, stirring frequently. Add vegetable dip mix, lemon, garlic and yogurt and stir well to combine.
  4. Divide filling evenly into each of the prebaked wonton cups, about a heaping tablespoon each.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes until filling is lightly browned. Top with remaining green onions. Serve warm or room temperature.
