This is absolutely delicious and full of flavour. If you love garlic dips then you’ll love this one. I love jarred artichokes they are perfect for antipasti as is this dip. Embarrassingly easy, quick and very impressive. I guarantee if you make it for guests as a little appetiser with drinks or before dinner they will love it. I also sometimes buy an extra jar of artichokes and cut them in half to put on the top of this dip. It’s also lovely and bulks the dip out a bit, giving it a different texture.
For the dip:
285g Jar artichoke hearts in sunflower oil
15g parmesan, finely grated
Squeeze of lemon juice
1/2 garlic clove
Put all of the ingredients in a bowl ( spoon the artichokes into a bowl do not add whole jar of oil ) and blitz together with a hand blender until smooth, season with salt and pepper. Yep that’s it! I told you..embarrassingly easy, right? Serve with some toasted crusty bread and cured meats.
