Artichoke Parmesan Dip
Recipe By : Hold The Toast Newsletter, 12/2/99
Serving Size : 1 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Appetizers Low Carb
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 can artichoke hearts
1 clove garlic -- crushed, or
1 teaspoon chopped garlic (from jar)
Preheat oven to 325.
Drain the artichoke hearts, and chop them up. Mix them with all the other ingredients except the paprika, combining well. Put it in a small, oven-proof casserole dish, sprinkle a little paprika on top to make it look nice, and bake for 45 minutes. Scoop this with pepper strips, cucumber rounds, celery sticks, or with low carb fiber crackers like the Fiber Rich mentioned in the first issue. (GG Bran Crispbread will work, too, or Bran-a-Crisp. Visit a health food store and read labels!)
Notes: This recipe doubles very easily. If you double it, you can, of course, use two cans of artichokes, or you can use one can of artichokes, and one package of frozen chopped spinach, thawed. (And, of course, twice as much of everything else.) I have also made this as a vegetable side dish by doubling the artichokes, but leaving everything else the same.
Two artichoke hearts have an effective carb count of 5 grams, but that's misleading, since much of the carb in artichokes is in the form of inulin, a carb which has the lowest blood sugar impact of any so far discovered. So this is still a fine low carb choice.
