Hot Broccoli-Artichoke Dip

Makes 2 cups

30 minutes or fewer

This crowd-pleasing dip is an inspired way to use up leftover cooked broccoli. The recipe can be tripled to fit a 13- x 9-inch baking dish, which is perfect for potlucks and cocktail parties. It also works well as a tasty sandwich spread.
  • 4 oz. Neufchâtel-style cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup marinated artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
  • 2 Tbs. chopped green olives, optional
  • 3 Tbs. grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 2 Tbs. light mayonnaise
  • ½ tsp. grated lemon zest
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup cooked broccoli, finely chopped (3 oz.)
  • Pinch smoked paprika for garnish, optional

1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat 8-inch ovenproof baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
2. Beat cream cheese in medium bowl with electric mixer until creamy. Stir in artichoke hearts, olives (if using), 2 Tbs. Parmesan, mayonnaise, lemon zest, and cayenne. Fold in broccoli.
3. Spread mixture in prepared baking dish, and sprinkle with remaining 1 Tbs. Parmesan and paprika, if using. Bake 20 minutes, or until bubbly, hot in center, and slightly browned at edges.

This was delicious. The smoked paprika is a great touch. If you like more spice, increase the amount of cayenne.

What type of cheese did you use in place of the parmesan to make it vegan? i have issues with vegan cheese(except the cream cheese).

I modified this recipe to be vegan. My husband LOVED it! I also made it for a party and it was a smashing hit! Everyone was asking for the recipe. I made 4x the recipe and it was all gone in a couple hours.

I wasn't crazy about this dip the first time that I made it for a party. It wasn't bad, it just didn't have enough "oomph" for me. Then, I exchanged half of the mayo with light sour cream (which I like better) and added a few splashes of sriracha sauce(or as commonly called "rooster sauce"). I'm sure any hot sauce would work too. The result was great for the next party -- for the Super Bowl.

Use nutritional yeast in place of the parmesan! :)
