Who would have thought artichoke plus cheese would be such a great duo? Also, it is strange to think kids would love artichokes, too, right?? Well, my kids love them! They love the artichokes dipped into a citrus-butter sauce and like to slide their teeth on each leaf to get that artichoke ‘meat.’ I usually put a big bowl in the center of the table so they can throw the leftovers in there…To my surprise, kids love artichokes! They look funny and taste good; throwing stuff in a bowl always appeals to kids! So naturally, the best cold artichoke dip is a winner too!

Easy Breezy Dip

This dip is simple to make, with the heads of many canned artichokes, cream cheese, creme fraîche, parsley, garlic, parmesan and lemon. You won’t need many more instructions; it’s as simple as that. It’s a cheesy dip, so be careful with the salt you add; make sure you try it out before. The artichokes are blended first with the lime juice to make it smooth without burning or overworking the cream and cheese.

Health Benefits of Artichokes

One of the only flowers/veggies we can consume, artichokes are filled with health benefits! For example, it’s suggested that it helps people suffering from irritable bowel syndrome, improves liver health, lowers bad cholesterol and good ones, and so much more. Check it out here for more information. It’s a veggie-filled with nutrients; some take artichoke extract daily to help digestion. In other words, it is a great vegetable, although when you buy canned artichokes, they come in this salty brine. Consider this when you add the salt if you need any.

Serve with

It’s such a polyvalent dip; it goes with so many dishes. Here are a few:

  • Crunchy veggies like carrots, cucumber sticks, celery or bell pepper
  • Crackers, tortilla chips or salted biscuits
  • Fresh or rye bread with a lovely smoked or marinated salmon on top
  • French fries (to make the kids happy to dip)
  • Oven baked potatoes

Variations

I saw this dip eaten warm or cold, some with spinach. You can add some if you desire, but I’ve added fresh parsley and chives; I thought it was sufficient. Also, this dip contains no mayonnaise, so no worries about leaving it on the counter too long.

Storage

You can easily keep the dip in the refrigerator for 4-5 days. Ensure to wrap it in plastic. You can also freeze it to conserve it longer.
