As I said above, today’s recipe is a Feta, Spinach, and Artichoke Dip, made completely in the Instant Pot (or other pressure cooker). This quick pot-in-pot dip recipe comes out so perfectly in your Instant Pot or pressure cooker that you’ll never make spinach and artichoke dip in your slow cooker or oven again. The feta cheese adds a light bite that sets this recipe apart from other spinach and artichoke dips. You can serve the dip with chunks of French bread, tortilla strips, or even vegetables if you want to keep this recipe keto-friendly.
I’ve got the full Instant Pot Feta, Spinach, and Artichoke Dip recipe at the bottom of this post (Jump to Recipe), but first I’ll share some step-by-step instructions and pictures, including some recommended tools, to help you get the most out of this easy Instant Pot recipe.
Tools needed for this Instant Pot spinach artichoke dip recipe
Electric or stovetop pressure cooker. I own the Instant Pot DUO Plus 6-Quart 9-in-1 pot, which works out great for my family of four.
Heat-safe bowl that fits inside your pressure cooker’s inner pot. I have this 7-cup glass dish, which fits inside 6 or 8-quart pots nicely. Probably my favorite Instant Pot accessory, this heat-safe glass Pyrex dish is perfect for making pot-in-pot recipes (like today’s recipe) in your pressure cooker. “Pot in pot” (sometimes abbreviated in pressure cooker recipes as “PIP”) refers to a method by which a smaller pot or bowl of food is placed inside the pressure cooker pot. This is a gentler cooking method and is common for foods that you can’t cook directly in liquid, such as breads or desserts.
Optional: Bakeware sling. This is my second favorite Instant Pot accessory, and it gets used almost daily. While your pot likely came with a steamer rack trivet, this sling acts as both a trivet and a convenient way to lower and raise food into and out of the pot. This comes in handy for every pot-in-pot Instant Pot recipe I make.
How to make Instant Pot Feta, Spinach, and Artichoke Dip
Here are the ingredients and tools needed to make this Instant Pot spinach artichoke dip. It’s a keto-friendly dip, and the prep time is very minimal (about 5 minutes) since it’s basically a dump, mix, and go recipe.
For the artichokes, you will use a 14-ounce can of artichoke hearts, drained and chopped. I start with a can of quartered artichoke hearts for less chopping, then chop them coarsely.
The spinach comes in the form of a 10-ounce package of frozen chopped spinach. The spinach needs to be thawed and drained before adding it to the other Instant Pot Feta, Spinach, and Artichoke Dip ingredients.
Mix mayonnaise, Parmesan cheese, crumbled feta cheese, the chopped artichoke hearts, the thawed spinach, minced garlic, and pepper together. You can use a mixing bowl, or if you want one less dish to clean, you can mix the ingredients directly in the heat-safe bowl you are going to cook the dip in (I use a 7-cup glass bowl, pictured below).
Spread the Instant Pot spinach artichoke dip out evenly in a heat-safe bowl that will fit inside your pressure cooker’s inner pot (I use this 7-cup Pyrex glass bowl).
Cover the bowl with aluminum foil.
Pour water into the pressure cooker pot and place a steamer rack trivet in the bottom, then place the foil-covered bowl on the trivet inside the pot. You can also use a bakeware sling (like the red one I have pictured above) that works not only as a trivet, but also as a convenient tool to lift bowls into and out of your pressure cooker pot.
Close and lock the pressure cooker lid, make sure the pressure/steam-release switch is set to sealing, and set the cooking time to 12 minutes at high/normal pressure (if using an electric pressure cooker; for stovetop pressure cookers, heat over a burner on high heat, set a timer for 12 minutes after the pot has reached pressure, then reduce the heat to low). It will take 7 to 8 minutes for the pot to come to pressure with an electric pressure cooker (stovetop pressure cookers may reach pressure sooner).
After the pressure cooking time ends, electric pressure cookers will automatically turn off their heat (stovetop pressure cookers must be removed from the heat). Release the pressure using the manufacturer’s quick-release method.
Carefully remove the bowl from the pressure cooker (it will be hot!) and stir the spinach artichoke dip.
You can serve the dip directly in the same dish it cooked in!
For presentation purposes, you can also transfer the Instant Pot Feta, Spinach, and Artichoke Dip to another dish for serving.
You can serve the Instant Pot spinach artichoke dip with chunks of French bread, tortilla strips, or even vegetables if you want to keep this recipe keto. It is delicious no matter which way you serve the dip!
