Ingredients
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 1 package cream cheese softened (8oz)
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp salt*
  • pepper to taste
  • 1 can artichoke hearts
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (if you plan to bake this right away).**

  2. Peel garlic. Start your food processor, and with it running, drop whole cloves of garlic through feed tube. It should mince perfectly in the bowl of the food processor.
  3. Add feta and run the machine to whip it up until it's nice and fluffy, and well combined. Then add softened cream cheese (broken into large pieces), fresh lemon juice, and pepper to taste. Whip well to combine completely.  Taste the dip to see if it's salty enough, and then add the salt, if you want.

  4. Chop artichoke hearts into large chunks and add them to the bowl of the food processor. Pulse until they are broken down into small, bite sized pieces.
  5. Scrape into a baking dish and bake for 20 minutes, or until dip is heated through and bubbly (and smells amazing!).
  6. Enjoy! :)
Recipe Notes
* Whip all the ingredients but the salt and taste the dip before you add it.  Feta varies in saltiness, and it's best to make sure it isn't salty enough already.
** You can also make this ahead of time and wait to bake it later - just store the dish in the fridge but make sure you bring it to room temperature before putting it in a hot oven.
