Spinach and Artichoke Squares for #SundaySupper Eat Your Greens

Spinach and Artichoke Squares Recipe

I've always been a lover of greens. Even when I was growing up, I'd be the one to reach for a spoon and the last few vegetables in the bowl at dinnertime to polish them off. For me, the dessert would go uneaten, but the veggies didn't stand a chance! The recipe I'm sharing today for #SundaySupper ~ Eat Your Greens, is for Spinach and Artichoke Squares, and it's one of my favorites!



I remember this classic appetizer recipe from back in the late 70's, early 80's, but I've updated it to include an additional one of my favorite vegetables, artichokes, and my very favorite cheese ("The undisputed king of cheeses!" ~ Mario Batali), Parmesan!!!

Spinach and Artichoke Squares Recipe

This dish can be eaten as an appetizer, a side dish, or standing at the kitchen counter as a between meal snack (not that I would know about anything like that)! If serving them as an appetizer, I suggest cutting them into smaller, bite sized squares and serving them at room temperature. If serving them as a side dish, cut them big, and serve them warm. If eating them at the kitchen counter, grab a fork and dig into the pan they were cooked in. Yep, that works just fine!

Naturally, this the glassware item I picked to go along with the "Eat Your Greens" theme. Seemed like a no-brainer if you ask me. LOL

  1. Artichokes are my favourite winter vegetables! I ADORE them! I must try to make these squares as I am sure they'd be a hit in my house (my little ones could eat Parmigiano all day long!). :-)

  17. I made you recipe yesterday for a wine & appetizer party. I'd made something similar in the past, but minus the artichokes. I coarsely chopped the artichokes, spinach and onion in the food processor.I thought it was good, but lacked seasoning. It could be me since I'm a "salt" person. The next time I make these - and there will be a next time - I'm going to add some crumbled feta. Love the artichoke addition. Thanks for the recipe!

    1. Hi Mary! Thanks so much for coming back to tell me that you tried, and enjoyed, this recipe. I think adding feta to these will be a delicious addition, and will definitely up the salt factor that you love! You're welcome for the recipe! I love bringing them to you :)
