Artichokes! For me it’s either steamed artichokes with mayo OR that decadent, absolutely sinful artichoke dip we all know and love. Big time calories. Big time fat. That’s just for cheat days. Ha! When I found artichokes the other day, I went into inventing mode. I had to make something that satisfied my artichoke dip craving. This is what I came up with: Roasted Garlic Artichoke Dip

I served this with a sliced baguette, but you can do the healthy options – Mexican pickled carrots, celery, red peppers, etc.
I’ve played with this Roasted Garlic Artichoke Dip recipe a few times. So, I’ll give you some ideas.
-You can definitely omit the Greek yogurt and goat cheese, and instead use ½ cup mayo. It’s not “healthier,” but you gotta admit that it sounds yum-o-licious!
-You can also substitute oregano with fresh tarragon or mint.
-If you want a more lemony flavor, add some lemon zest. For me, though, I didn’t want to take away too much from the roasted garlic flavor. The smell of garlic roasting… Mmmm!
