Artichoke Dip

Sometimes when things don’t go as planned, the best things end up happening. For example, last week I was headed to a wedding in Philadelphia and ended up getting stuck in Dallas for the night due to a broken plane. Normally this would be a huge headache but since I have family in Dallas it turned out perfectly. My cousin came and picked me up and we had a fun filled night running around Dallas. It was a perfect accident.

Today’s recipe started out much the same. I had plans of turning these artichokes into a pasta sauce but realized after pulsing away I was missing about half the ingredients on my list. So rather than trash it, I started adding some spices and turned it into a healthy, zero point dip. Perfect with homemade chips, veggies, or spread on a sandwich. And for only 25 calories per serving, you can literally eat the entire recipe. Like a smoother texture, add in a touch of Greek yogurt or low-fat sour cream.

  1. Drain the artichokes, saving up to 1/2 cup canning liquid on the side. If you use defrosted frozen artichokes, just have some water or vegetable broth on hand.
  2. Add everything to a food processor and pulse until combined. If needed add canning liquid or water/broth to the food processor one tablespoon at a time to help with mixing. Be careful not to add too much liquid.
