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.

Anyway, here’s the recipe:
