Because I posted the benefits of artichokes, I thought it was best to follow up with a recipe containing artichokes! Here is a spinach artichoke dip that I found on Martha Stewart’s website that I changed a little to make it a little more healthier. Also there is no baking/oven involved!

Here is the link to the actual recipe:

  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
  • 1 (14-ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
  • 1 (10-ounce) package frozen spinach, thawed and drained
  • 3/4 cup low fat yogurt
  • 4 ounces neufchâtel cheese or a lighter cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Mix all ingredients together.
