So this is the scenario: you have friends coming over for dinner.  You’ve been running around after work trying to get everything ready for dinner, your hair is a mess and you realize that you haven’t thought about what everyone can snack on pre- dinner.  AND THEN- THIS RECIPE SWOOPS IN AND SAVES THE DAY!  A five ingredient, super simple, throw-together breeze of a dip that TASTES LIKE IT CAME FROM THE ARTICHOKE GODS.  Serve it with some of these tasty (gluten free!) flax seed crackers from Blue Diamond Almonds.  And now you have something to serve that will wow AND time to fix your hair.  The only thing missing is your cape!  xx- Sarah

      Thanks Madeleine! Typically it’s made with cheeses and it’s really heavy and fattening. This is a lighter, healthier version that is still delish! 🙂

    Hi, I was wondering if you can use frozen artichokes? I try to avoid a lot of canned items. Thank you.

      Hi Susan!
      I’m not sure, but it’s worth a try! Let me know if you do, I’d love to swap out canned fro frozen too! 🙂

    Yesss!!! I could basically call my way of eating the House in the Hills diet, since I pretty much only prepare recipes from your blog (with a little of GP’s “It’s All Good” thrown in for good measure). Thanks for making healthy eating so delicious, easy, and beautiful!

    This looks so good! I’m not a fan of ‘normal’ artichoke dip (weird, I know), but I do love artichokes and this looks much more up my alley! Thanks for sharing, will definitely be trying this for summer bbqs.

      Thanks Lena! I am actually not a fan of traditional artichoke dip either. But this light and healthy version does it for me! 🙂

    Made this yesterday for a crowd and it was well-received! I love that you found a way to leave out the spinach and the cheese and make it a healthy artichoke dip. Thank you!
