WW friendly artichoke dip

Recommended Posts

Although this is fairly high in points for what you're getting, it does satisfy a craving especially if you have holiday parties to go to with lots of appetizers around.

 

1 c. light mayo

1 c. light sour cream

1 c. parmesean cheese

1 can artichokes (about 15 oz size)

2 cloves garlic

3/4 t. dill

 

Mix all ingredients and bake at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes

 

I counted this at 36 points total which will make about 3 c. dip so I counted 3 pts per 1/4 c. I used generic type crackers that were 9 for 4 points. So for 7 points (although rather high) I was able to take this dip to a party and feel like I was indulging.

Okay, it's late and I'm tired so forgive this stupid question, but is the parm cheese grated (like the powdered kind) or shredded? I always use grated parm, but I'm betting this is something else. I have Low-Fat Parm in the fridge. I *love* artichoke dip!

The fattening spinach and artichoke dip that I make (only for other people, of course) is pretty much the same. I use the canned artichokes (I would have no inkling as to what to do with a fresh one) and one box of the frozen spinach (cooked).

 

This is one of those recipes where you can add all sorts of things to it. You can substitute the mayo or sour cream with ricotta. My recipe calls for one cup of cheddar cheese, which would obviously increase the points, but you could add less and make it low fat. I usually throw in a dash of tabasco, sometimes lemon pepper seasoning, etc. And you can use pita chips (which you can make at home) or tortilla chips. And I use the grated parm, but you could use shredded.

This is wonderful! I made it to take to a NYE party and it was a huge hit with everyone. It is one of my favorites and this recipe is nearly half the fat and calories as the original. No one knew though until I told them is was lo-cal!!

I made artichoke dip for a party 2 weeks ago, right as I was starting WW.

 

I used 1cup FF Mayo. 8oz FF mozzerella, 1/4cup RF Parmasan, 2 cans artichoke hearts. Sprinkled the top with Paprika and baked at 350 for 20 minutes or so. I brought Club crackers (they are the best with this).

 

I think that I worked the numbers and figured that it was only 4pts for 1/4cup of dip and 4 club crackers (the regular kind, not reduced fat). IIRC, the dip was only 1-2 pts, the crackers were a lot though (didn't know the WW rules yet)

 

Honestly, it tasted wonderful, there was no telling that it was FF mayo & cheese.
