When I first experimented with this recipe it would yield half of this amount. However, it would be gone so fast when I served it that I had to increase the quantities. I am often asked for this recipe and it is a hit even with those who are not spinach lovers. We have also added crab meat to the leftover dip and broiled it on top of toast points.
A really great tapa that will get you many compliments. Really simple to make. The original recipe was by Roxanne. I have served this at many of my "Wine and Tapa" parties and was always pleased by the response.

I made these for Christmas 2005 with my daughter. She enjoyed making and eating them. The plate was empty in a few minutes. This recipe came from a little book called 'Bites' by The Australian Women's Weekly - Creative food
