High-Fiber Cheesy Artichoke Dip

Published February 18th, 2014

Here’s an easy, lower-fat version of warm artichoke-cheese dip. In new research, artichoke hearts tested surprisingly high in antioxidant activity — even more per cup than strawberries. Garlic and chives are high in antioxidants, too, and fat-free cottage cheese helps keep the fat and calorie counts down.

Makes five1/2 c. servings.

2 8 oz. packages frozen artichoke hearts
1 1/2 c. fat-free cottage cheese
4 oz. herbed goat cheese (chèvre)
1 T. plus 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
3 T. fresh lemon juice
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 T. Worcestershire sauce
1/3 c. light mayonnaise
1/3 c. fat-free half-and-half
1 c. chopped chives
Salt and pepper, to taste
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cook artichokes according to package directions; chop roughly. Set aside.

In a food processor, mix all ingredients except artichokes and Parmesan cheese until smooth. Stir in artichokes.

Pour mixture into a 9-inch baking dish. Sprinkle with Parmesan. Bake for 30 minutes. If top hasn’t browned, put under broiler.

Let sit for 15 minutes before serving. (It may be watery when first removed from the oven.) Serve with toasted whole wheat pita chips.
