artichoke dip

10Dec10

‘Tis the season for appetizers! Here’s my attempt to develop another healthy and delicious appetizer. My mom’s family always has Artichoke Dip (you know the one: creamy, rich and awesome!) at their family gatherings. Don’t get me wrong — I love that stuff. But, I fear that more than a few of my extra pounds came directly from that steaming casserole dish.

I created this dish with the classic recipe in mind. I blended marinated and canned artichoke hearts with seasonings to get a creamy, savory dip to spread on crackers, bread or veggies.

Artichoke Dip

Ingredients:

  • 1 jar of marinated artichoke hearts
  • 2 cans of artichoke hearts, packed in water
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh black pepper
  • juice of 1/2 lemon

Instructions:

  1. Drain artichoke hearts, leaving half the jar of marinated artichoke liquid.
  2. Peel and roughly chop the clove of garlic.
  3. Put all ingredients into a blender.
  4. Blend until smooth.
  5. Taste and then adjust seasonings.
  6. Enjoy!
