Artichokes are great for immunity as they are loaded with folic acid, fiber, Vitamin C and potassium. This is a lighter and more heart healthy version than most dips that contain mayonnaise and other saturated fats.
Serve this with a big platter of immune boosting veggies that everyone will enjoy i.e. carrot sticks, grape tomatoes, cucumber, red peppers, broccoli and lightly steamed green beans.
Yields 2 cups
1 14-oz. canned artichoke hearts, drained
2 T. olive oil
1/8 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 box of frozen spinach
Juice of ½ lemon
Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor and puree until well blended.
