Some of my family members have recently decided to try the low-carb diet* for weight loss. I am, of course, always trying to come up with new food ideas to help them reach their weight loss goals and also add some extra taste appeal to their diets. This recipe turned out to be a delicious success!
1 (13.5 ounces) can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
1 cup mayonnaise
1cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 clove garlic, crushed (can use 1 teaspoon jarred, chopped garlic)
1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
2. Mix first 4 ingredients together in a medium mixing bowl until well blended.
3. Pour the mixture into a small, oven-proof casserole, sprinkle a little paprika over the top. Bake for 45 minutes. Serve hot with pepper strips, cucumber rounds, celery sticks, low-carb fiber crackers or pork rinds.
Makes 4 servings each with 3 grams of carbohydrates and 1 gram of fiber for a total of 2 grams usable carbohydrates and 10 grams of protein. (This analysis does not include vegetables or crackers).
* You don’t have to be eating a low-carb diet to enjoy this wonderful dip! Try it with your favorite dipping vegetables, chips or crackers.
