Healthy spinach and feta dip

Healthy spinach and feta dip



  • 20ml (1 tbsp) olive oil
  • 4 spring onions, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 packet (150g)baby spinach leaves
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2.5ml (1/2 tsp) fresh lemon zest
  • 10ml (2 tsp) fresh lemon juice
  • 260g (1 cup) low-fat Greek yoghurt
  • 80g (1/2 cup) feta cheese, finely crumbled
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh dill
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • vegetable sticks to serve


Heat oil in the frying pan over medium heat. Add spring onions and garlic and cook, stirring until fragrant (about 2 minutes). Add spinach and cook, stirring often until wilted ( about 2 more minutes).

Using a slotted spoon, scoop spinach mix into a food processor; pulse until roughly puréed (about 5 pulses). Add remaining ingredients except pepper, pulse once just to combine, and then season to taste with the pepper.

Add a sprinkle of the extra dill on top. Portion the dip into a small container with a lid for the lunch box. Add sliced capsicum, carrot and celery as dippers to serve.

Serving Suggestions


  • Don’t be tempted not to cook the onion component of this recipe if you are serving it to kids. The flavours will be quite strong.
  • If I can’t be bothered getting the food processor out (because I am a lazybones), I just use my Bamix. It makes the dip more pureed, but it still tastes good.
