Directions

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Set a large bowl of ice and water on the counter nearby. Put 1 bunch of spinach in a metal sieve just small enough to fit inside the pot and immerse the spinach in the boiling water for about 1 minute and then carefully lift out the sieve and use it to immerse the spinach in the ice water for 30 seconds. Remove the sieve from the water and, with the back of a large metal spoon, press down firmly on the spinach to squeeze out all excess water. Transfer the spinach to a mixing bowl and set aside. Repeat the process with the remaining bunches of spinach.


Turn your crockpot on medium-high. Put the artichokes and carrots into the bowl of a food processor fitted with the stainless-steel blade. Pulse the machine on and off until the artichokes and carrots are very coarsely chopped, for about 5-7 seconds. Leave the artichokes and carrots in the processor and add to them the mayonnaise, mascarpone, crème fraiche, goat cheese, garlic, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and half of the Parmesan. Pulse the machine several times just until they are thoroughly combined. Add the well-drained spinach to the processor and pulse the machine several times more, just until the spinach is combined with the other ingredients. The mixture should still have some texture and not be completely smooth. Spoon it into the crockpot. Let this cook in the crockpot for about 1-2 hours.
