A Gorgeous Summer Artichoke Spread

Jump to recipe

My friends (and those who own at least one of my cookbooks) know how much I love condiments, dips, spreads and chutneys-anything that adds a little excitement to a dish or a protein. Many times, they’re fabulous on their own. This is one of those examples. Like a hummus…but not, this dish is lighter and fluffier. It’s perfect for a summer picnic or just a snack with some fresh cucumbers and red pepper strips. I have this with low salt sliced turkey. I spread a little on a slice, roll it up and eat it! It’s filling, low carb and chock-a-block with protein, vitamin k, vitamin B and fiber.

As I said before, the ingredients are similar to hummus, but without the chickpeas and tahini. I got the idea from an artichoke dip I had at a friend’s house-hers had mayo in it. Mayo is the one condiment I don’t like in spreads, except for tuna, egg and chicken salad, so I thought about what can be used instead. I’m sure I’ve seen an artichoke hummus somewhere. My short term memory isn’t what it used to be.

My short term memory isn’t what it used to be. (See?)

Anyway, here’s the recipe:

  • I am really enjoying following your blog, there is so much rubbish cluttering up the internet these days that it’s nice to see something origional. Plus you always seem to manage to make me laugh which is a hard task. I see that you have made your blog using wordpress! Same as me but your theme looks a lot better than mine. If you don’t mind me asking is it a free theme that i could download and use for example or did you have to pay for it? Because mine is the orgional that you get when you install wordpress so it doesn’t look so amazing to anyone that views my site. Anyways good luck with your blog I love it and I am sure everyone else does :P, best regards, Lee

  • I’m not that much of a internet reader to be honest but your sites really nice, keep it up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your site to come back later on. Cheers
