Vegetarian Artichoke Spinach Pitas

July 15, 2010

Vegetarian Artichoke Spinach Pitas

Ingredients

  • 1 (14 ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise (I used sour cream because I don’t like mayo)
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled (or 2 TBSP minced garlic)
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried dill weed (I used instead fresh basil from my garden)
  • 8 oz frozen Spinach

Throw all of the ingredients in your crockpot and cook on low for 6-8 hours. This can be served in Pitas with your favorite veggies, cheese etc… or can be used as a dip with Crackers or Heavy Dipping Bread pieces.

These would be great to send cold in a lunchbox:)

Vegetarian Broccoli and Cheese Casserole

Ingredients

  • 2 (16 ounce) packages frozen chopped broccoli
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise (I used sour cream because I don’t like mayo)
  • 10 ounces dry bread stuffing mix (boxed or make your own)

 

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Cook broccoli according to package instructions. Lightly Grease a large baking dish.
  2. In a bowl, mix the cheese, eggs, onion, cream of mushroom soup, and mayonnaise (sour cream).
  3. Arrange the cooked broccoli in the prepared baking dish. Pour cheese sauce over broccoli. Spread stuffing mix over the sauce.
  4. Bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until bubbly and lightly browned.

**NOTES: This recipe makes enough to serve 4 adult and 2 children and still have leftovers to freeze for later.
