They sell this dip alongside olives and tapenades at local markets in Southern Europe, but it’s fairly easy to make it yourself. Plus, it only contains healthy ingredients.
a can of artichoke hearts (supermarket)
3 tbs of olive oil
3 cloves of garlic
juice of one lemon or lime
6 fresh basil leaves
Put all the ingredients in a small kitchen robot and blend until you get a structured mass. You may have to stir once or twice in between. That’s it!
Serve it with origan & olive crackers or slices of a freshly baked baguette. A nice drink to go along is Italian Peroni beer. The artichoke dip enhances the subtle citrus notes of the beer.
