I got the idea for this recipe when I was brainstorming foods that would naturally reflect the ideal macros of a low-carb, high-fat ketogenic diet – 75% fat, 20% protein and 5% carbs. I love that the keto way of eating includes the yummiest foods you can think of. For so many years I restricted myself from enjoying spinach artichoke dip when I was afraid of fat and followed the eat less, move fallacy. So, I went on a mission to create the best damn spinach artichoke dip in order to make up for all those missed opportunities. Sweet Jesus, it’s the best damn spinach artichoke dip I’ve ever had; destined to be famous, just like my famous grilled salmon recipe.
I always serve this as part of my low-carb Thanksgiving meal plan. You can serve it as a side dish or as an appetizer. Either way, people will freak out when they taste it and think you are really something special. Then they’ll ask you for the recipe!
