I read the reviews before making it, made a couple adjustments, and it turned out amazingly delicious! I used 3 cloves of garlic, and added about 3/4 cup fat free cottage cheese and 1/4 cup low fat cream cheese to the food processor with the beans. This is one of my husbands favorite things to order in restaurants, and he agreed it was just as good. We actually ate it for dinner with carrot sticks and home made whole wheat bread. Definitely going to make this on a regular basis and for parties!
Artichoke, Spinach, and White Bean Dip
If you can't find baby artichoke hearts, use quartered artichoke hearts and chop them. Serve this warm dip with your favorite multigrain crackers.
