Artichoke Dip Recipe

Having a party? Try this artichoke dip recipe! This is a great dip which is ideal with crackers or crudites such as celery and carrot slices. This artichoke dip recipe is also delicious with warm toasted bread. Artichokes are something a lot of people overlook in the grocery store but they are really nice, and you can use fresh or canned ones in so many recipes, such as baked pasta dishes and soups.

A lot of artichoke dips feature spinach but this one doesn’t, just to make it more unique. The artichoke offers plenty of flavor of its own and does not require backup in the form of spinach. The dip comes out an off-white color because of the ingredients that go into it.

You can throw this together in 10 minutes and it only needs about 20 minutes in the oven to make it nice and hot.

Artichoke hearts have a special and unique flavor and you can find them in risottos, soups and other dishes. What is really great about them is how good they are for making dips, and especially creamy dips. Take this artichoke dip recipe for example. The artichoke offers its own special taste as well as the nutrients and health benefits always associated with veggies, and then you have the rich creaminess too, so you can enjoy this with crudites, crackers, bread or anything else you wish to dip. Try tortilla chips perhaps, or even celery stalks, or offer a selection of dip-able foods!
