Recipe Info

  • Servings : 4
  • Prep Time : 2:00 h
  • Cook Time : 20m
  • Ready In : 2:20 h


  • 2 tbsps olive oil
  • 1⁄2 cup carrot, finely chopped
  • 1⁄2 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1⁄2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 500g spinach, washed
  • 250ml sour cream
  • 125ml mayonnaise
  • 2 tsps Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice


Step 1

Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat until shimmering. Add the carrot, onion, garlic, salt and pepper and stir to combine. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables have softened, about 6 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and set aside.

Step 2

Return the pan to medium heat, add half of the spinach, season with salt and pepper, and stir to combine. Cook, tossing occasionally, until the spinach is completely wilted, about 4 minutes. Add the remaining spinach and cook, tossing occasionally, until completely wilted, about 3 minutes more.

Step 3

Transfer the spinach to the strainer in the sink. Using a ladle, press on the spinach to squeeze out as much liquid as possible. Finely chop the spinach, and transfer it to the bowl with the vegetables.

Step 4

Add the sour cream, mayonnaise, Worcestershire Sauce, and lemon juice and stir to combine. Cover tightly and refrigerate until the flavours meld and the dip is thoroughly chilled, about 2 hours. Serve with sliced fresh bread or crackers.
