Artichoke Dip with Fontina

When I made this recipe from March Everyday Food, Teen Martha gushed, “I love dips!”

I made this for dinner and we really enjoyed it. It was rather simple to throw together and was a nice different thing to have with dinner. You start by cooking onion (1/2 medium onion) and garlic (3 cloves) in oil. You add in the canned drained artichoke hearts (3 cans) and white wine (1/2 cup)and cook until the wine evaporates. Stir in light cream cheese (4 oz) and fontina (2 1/4 cups), add some parsley and bake for 30 minutes at 400. While that bakes you brush some pita triangles with oil and bake them until they are crisp about 15 minutes. This was warm and yummy. And I felt totally justified eating it since artichokes ARE a vegetable!

  1. I agree, any dips with artichokes is counted just as a vegetable, right!? 🙂

    I made this for our Meatless Monday lunch at work. Everyone loved it. It was yummy! I don’t think my family would eat it though. My husband thinks artichokes are a “girl” food. Whatever.

  3. Alisa Bowman says:

    The onions and garlic are good for you, too. And since the cheese was lowfat, this might actually qualify as health food…

  4. marthaandme says:

    well the fontina wasn’t low fat, but a little cheese never hurt anyone!

    It was great, wasn’t it? Put some bacon in it – then he would eat it. Mr. MarthaAndMe liked the idea of bacon in it.

  6. marthaandme says:

    Maybe I should make a spinach dip next. Teen Martha would be thrilled.

  7. I love dips and artichoke dip is near the top! I’ve tried all sorts of them and will try this one too. Thanks for sharing!

    Spinach and artichoke dips are non-existent here in Kiwiland, but I LOVE them. Too much. Baffled at the idea that artichokes are “girly”.

  9. Alexandra says:

    Woo-hoo! I like this one. Can’t wait to try it out, and I’m not waiting for company. On tonight’s menu: Artichoke Dip With Fontina. Thanks!

  10. Sheryl Kraft says:

    I am cooking artichokes right now, as I write this. One of my favorite veggies. This dip sounds wonderful, too. Gotta try it!

  11. Kerry says:

    looking forward to your spinach dip adventure — and to Teen Martha’s comments on it.

  12. This looks fabulous. I love artichokes and my kids love dips. (They eat their vegetables when they have something to dip them in!) So this is a recipe we’ll be trying!!

  13. Meredith says:

    Okay, I bookmarked this recipe…now I just need a party to go to so I can make this. Sounds wonderful!

  14. Looks amazing. I LOVE fontina in just about anything. But I must admit artichokes are not my favorite. Is there a possible substitute? Maybe fontina-spinach dip?

  15. marthaandme says:

    I think spinach would be great.

    Late to the table and so I’m wondering if there’s any left. Artichoke dip w/ fontina AND crispy pita that is.

    Sounds like a nice little nosh to share with fellow Oscar watchers on Sunday. Thanks for the inspiration.

  17. marthaandme says:

    Oh yes! I was just thinking today that I need to find out what time the Oscars are on and see if I can justify not making dinner and instead making some lovely snack-y things instead. If the husband gets to pull that for the US-Canada Olympic hockey game, then I get to for the Oscars! And of course, we set a place for George Clooney.

    Just made this dip for our neighboorhood Easter egg hunt and party and it was a huge hit!!! So easy. I pretty much followed the directions, but didn’t have enough cream cheese, so I just used a few tablespoons and a 6oz package of plain Greek yogurt. Also added a few tablespoons of parm. cheese. Fantastic! Thanks for the great recipe!
