2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, divided
3 garlic cloves, minced
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 400°.
Combine first 4 ingredients in a food processor; add 1 can of artichokes and beans. Process until smooth. Add remaining can of artichokes, 3/4 cup of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, 1 tablespoon parsley, and garlic. Pulse 20 times or until artichokes are coarsely chopped.
Spoon mixture into an 8-inch square baking dish coated with cooking spray; sprinkle top with remaining 1/4 cup of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and remaining 1 tablespoon parsley. Bake at 400° for 25 minutes or until bubbly.
This dip is delicious. Made it for my family as a trial run for possible inclusion in a holiday buffet. Used lots of lemon and served with crudite. It was an instant hit, and it really does taste just as good at room temp. I even ate some of the leftovers cold out of the fridge and it was deliciuos. This will definitely be on our appetizer table for Christmas this year.
I made this for my New Year's Eve party, and it was a winner. I had fresh dill on hand, which I thought worked beautifully with the artichokes, and provided more flavor than parsley. A dash of cayenne bumped it up as well. Served with baked pita chips, wedges of red pepper and baby carrots.
