Recently, our book club hostess for the month of April, threw out a challenge – all members bring a snack to share to our meeting that we have never brought before… I LOVE a test like this. Still, not an easy task for a 7 year member while keeping in mind everyone’s dietary restrictions due to health, convictions or yep….bathing suit season.
I started looking through the pantry for inspiration and grabbed a can of artichoke hearts.
Here’s what happened:
1 can artichoke hearts drained
1 clove of garlic
1/4 cup parmesan cheese or vegan parmesan
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Sea salt and cracked pepper to taste
After, draining the artichokes well, I put them in my food processor with the garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, cheese, salt and pepper. Simply pulse to chop and combine all ingredients. Spread on gluten free crackers or serve with fresh veggies.
So good, clean and easy…. Bring it on!
Next month…. hmmm?
