Artichoke dip (meat free, citrus free, gluten free)

I used baby artichokes I cut down to the yellow part, and microwaved in 2 inches of water for 10 minutes...
10 baby artichokes, cut as above, or one can of canned artichokes
1 1/2 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup of mayonnaise
2 small clove garlic (minced)
Salt and pepper

Drain the artichokes from the can. Coarsely chop them.
Combine chopped chokes, cheeses, mayo, and garlic in a small oven-proof serving dish.
Add fresh ground pepper and salt to taste.
Bake in oven at 375 - 400 until melted.

I liked this recipe, although it was very cheesy and rich... next time, if it is just me eating it, I will easily cut in in a quarter recipe.

I make a similar dip (but fat free) love spinach + artichoke dip. You've got me jonesing for it now! said...

How do you make it fat free? I would love a fat free spinach artichoke dip! A friend recently taught me how to cook artichokes and now I cant believe I went without eating them for so long!
