EatingWell's Jessie Price shows how to make hot artichoke dip healthy. She cuts calories and fat by using low-fat mayonnaise as a substitute for full-fat mayonnaise and tops the dip with full-flavored Parmesan cheese before baking.
Hi, this is Jessie. I'm here in the EatingWell Test Kitchen, and today I'm going to show you how to make a healthier version of hot artichoke dip. I have two whole cans of artichoke hearts. These guys are loaded with fiber, folate and vitamin K, which all work together to help aid your digestion. Put those into a food processor, process them up until they're chopped. Then we go with Parmesan cheese and low-fat mayonnaise. Add garlic, lemon zest, cayenne for zip, salt and pepper. Blend that all together until it's combined. Scrape this into your baking dishes, put just a little bit more Parmesan cheese on top, bake it until it's golden and heated through. That takes about 10 to 20 minutes. You have just made a delicious, healthier hot artichoke dip. And, compared with traditional versions, you've saved 770 calories and 24 grams of saturated fat per serving.
