Baby Artichokes with Creamy Horseradish-Dill Dip


This is a SparkPeople.com Recipe (what's this)

Introduction

If there are any pink or purple leaves in the center of the artichoke, scoop them out with a spoon or cut them out with a knife; they'd be tough even after cooking. Soaking the artichokes in lemon water prevents them from browning.

Ingredients

    4 cups cold water1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice2 1/2 pounds baby artichokes (about 10 artichokes)1 lemon, halved1/4 cup plain fat-free yogurt1/4 cup (2 ounces) 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, softened1 tablespoon prepared horseradish1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice1/8 teaspoon salt1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepperFresh dill sprigs (optional)

Directions

Combine water and 1 tablespoon lemon juice. Working with one artichoke at a time, bend back outer green leaves of artichokes, snapping at base, until reaching light green leaves. Trim about 1 inch from top of artichoke. Cut off stem of artichoke to within 1 inch of base; peel stem. Cut artichoke in half vertically. Rub edges with cut lemon, and place artichoke halves in lemon water. Repeat with remaining artichokes. Steam artichoke halves for 12 minutes or until tender.

Combine yogurt and next 6 ingredients (through pepper). Serve artichoke halves with dip; garnish with dill sprigs, if desired.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: one-fourth artichoke halves and about 2 tablespoons dip)

  • The dip for the artichoke was really good, but I didn't like it with the artichoke. I'm not sure if it's this recipe that I don't like, or if I don't like artichoke! This was my first attempt at artichoke and it's the first time I've ever eaten it steamed. - 5/18/09
