I always keep a tin or jar of Artichokes in the pantry. They give an ordinary salad a nice kick or in this case can be turned into a dip or spread. Low fat and low calorie, they are nice with some bubbles before a meal or as a base for a pizza.
1 , 400 gram tin of Artichokes, yields 6, or 240 gs when drained.
1 clove of garlic
1/2 a lemon, rind removed with a vegetable peeler, juiced
1 dessert spoon of sour cream, light OK
Olive oil, enough to bring the mixture together, about 1 tablespoon
Drop garlic and lemon peel onto spinning blades, speed 7
Scrape down and zap again. Scrape down and add remaining ingredients and mix on speed 7. Scraping down several times until you get a consistency that you like.
Scrape into serving bowl.
Serve with crackers, carrot and celery sticks or with Naan bread.
