Cheesy hot broccoli dip that's secretly healthier is a delicious snack or appetizer loaded with veggies and cheese. It's great for football games and parties! (gluten-free, vegetarian)


  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup diced red or orange bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup diced onion
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped broccoli
  • 1/4 cup whipped cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup freshly parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp freshly grated cheddar cheese
  • Salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Mince garlic. Finely dice onion and bell pepper. Chop broccoli into small pieces. 
  3. In a large bowl, stir together cream cheese and yogurt until smooth. Add chopped veggies, 2 tbsp of the parmesan, 1/2 cup of the cheddar, salt and pepper.
  4. Spread mixture into an 8-inch baking dish. Top with remaining parmesan and cheddar and sprinkle with paprika. Bake 15-20 minutes, or until top is golden and bubbly.
  5. Serve warm with crackers, pita chips, and/or cut up veggies.


  • Store leftover dip in the refrigerator in an airtight container up to 3 days.
  • This recipe is really very flexible. I've added in other veggies when I didn't have broccoli. I've used Boursin, gruyere, whatever I have. Its always delicious.
  • If you don't have yogurt, you can absolutely use mayo or sour cream.
  • If you have regular cream cheese, use 3 oz and let it soften before whisking.
