Blended Canned Artichokes Make The Base For A Simple, Delicious Dip
Canned artichokes are the perfect foundation for a simple and delicious dip. Blending them results in a creamy base that concentrates their distinct vegetal savoriness.
Plus, using canned artichokes as a foundational ingredient in a dip allows you to enhance and complement their flavors with many seasonings and condiments.
Canned artichokes are creamy enough to be a worthy dairy substitute for vegan or dairy-free dips, and they can improve the texture and flavor of many well-known dips.
