Tasty Tuesday

I'll make this one super quick, another is soon to follow. But I at least wanted to participate in the "Tasty Tuesday" FTLOB blog hop in a proper way. This Baked Artichoke Dip is my all-time go to when it comes to parties, get togethers, or just lounging around the house in need of a good snack. It the perfect balance of creamy and savory. And with it being really low in calories, you can't go wrong! And no, I don't have an accompanying picture, but maybe I'll make a post with full details in the near future. Then again, I always devour it too quickly before the camera is ready. Hope ya'll enjoy and have a delicious Tasty Tuesday!

Baked Artichoke Dip 
makes 2 cups

3/4 cup dry curd or nonfat cottage cheese

1 tablespoon unbleached flour

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1/8 teaspoon ground white pepper

1/2 teaspoon crushed fresh garlic

1 can (14 oz) artichoke hearts, drained

1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons grated nonfat or reduced-fat Parmesan cheese

-Place the cottage cheese, flour, lemon juice, pepper, and garlic in a 
food processor or blender, and process until smooth.  
-Add the artichoke hearts 
and all but 2 tablespoons of the Parmesan cheese, and process until the mixture
is slightly chunky.  
-Coat a small casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray.

-Place the artichoke mixture in the dish, top with the remaining Parmesan,
and bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes, or until the edges are bubbly and
the top is lightly browned.  
-Serve hot with whole grain crackers,
 chunks of sourdough bread, or Pita Chips.  (or my favorite, with vegetables!)
Serving Size:  1 tablespoon, about 20 calories
