    I'd try this with cream cheese even, and instead of bread, spread it on celery or cucumber slices! - 10/12/13

    Very good! I added a little finely shredded italian blend cheese to kick it up a notch. Also might consider heating it. - 10/19/13

    This is a good start. To be the most healthy you need to ramp up the fiber and protein. I would use spinach, kale, and a protein powder made from plants.
    Whip it up and see what you have. Be creative. Just remember to get the protein and fiber count higher. - 10/12/13

  • This had a weird, overly sweet flavor. I doctored it up by adding the juice of half a lemon and some garlic powder, plus some low-fat cream cheese. It was better, but I won't be making this again. - 11/3/13

  • I loved this recipe, years back I used mayonnaise and always felt that was fattening & greasy. This is so easy to put in the food processor and whirl it into a yummy spread I used the scallions & so fresh thyme from my garden I made the dip then chopped up some mushrooms and added it and I loved it - 10/12/13

    I am so going to try this with a combination of Tofutti Better than Cream Cheese and Daiya Vegan Mozzarella in place of the cottage cheese...just cuz we have a severe dairy allergy in the house doesn't mean I can't have me some artichoke dip!! Looks great.

    Does the calorie count include the baguette pieces? The Breakdown doesn't actually break it down by ingredient. Looks tasty though, will have to try. Wonder if heating it &/or adding spinach would be good? - 10/3/13
