A recipe for a creamy Artichoke and Roasted Garlic Dip. A great appetizer recipe for Artichoke and Roasted Garlic Dip I love artichokes and I love a creamy, warm dip…..enter Hot Artichoke Dip. Yum. Most of you are probably looking at your screen just sweating thinking about it. I know I know, even though it’s almost fall (yay!) it’s still hot out here in LA (boo!) and I’m sure in other areas as well. BUT in a time when artichokes are abundant I love to take advantage of them in all ways including making this classic dip. I’ve made mine a little different by using mascarpone instead of cream cheese because it’s a tiny bit more mild, but cream cheese is totally acceptable. I also roasted the garlic because I LOVE roasted garlic; like have you ever smeared some roasted garlic on a crostini followed by some melted triple cream brie and topped it with a slice of sweet bosc pear and a couple of candied walnuts?! SO GOOD! Please excuse my completely off topic food tangent, it happens a lot.  I just really, really love roasted garlic :)  Anyways, back to this dip. Make it, share it, eat it. It’s fast, easy and totally hits the spot when you’re craving something not so healthy (and yes using baked whole wheat flatbread chips was indeed my sad little attempt to make this a little more healthy) Enjoy!

3 sheets whole wheat flatbread, cut into 1”x4” sticks
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon smoked paprika
artichoke dip:
1 head garlic, top sliced off
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
14 oz can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
2 green onions, thinly sliced
8 ounces mascarpone, softened
1/3 c light mayonnaise
½ cup part-skim mozzarella, shredded
¼ cup parmesan, grated
2 tablespoons hot sauce

1 tablespoon parmesan, grated
1 ½ tablespoons butter, melted

1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

9. Mash the cloves into a paste and stir in the remaining dip ingredients. Season with salt and pepper.
10. Stir the mixture until fully incorporated.
11. Scoop the dip into a 3 cup baking dish of your choice and set aside.
