Spray a medium pot with nonstick cooking spray. Add garlic and onions and cook over medium heat until they’re translucent, about five minutes.
Put spinach in food processor and pulse a few times to chop. Add artichokes and pulse a few more times. The mixture should be chunky. Add spinach and artichokes to pot, along with cream cheese, oregano, red pepper and lemon juice. Heat until bubbly, then add Parmesan cheese and salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
Garnish with chopped red bell pepper or chopped tomatoes. (Calories not included.)
Makes 20 servings of about 2 Tablespoons.
Serve with vegetables or baked chips.

*Don’t worry about getting the spinach completely dry. The extra moisture will help thin the dip.
