This decadent spread for crackers and bread is much lighter in fat and calories than the traditional version. I used artichoke bottoms because I like their denser texture for this, but artichoke hearts will also work.
1teaspoonlemon or lime juiceoptional; use more for fresh artichokes
Put all ingredients except lemon juice into food processor. Process, stopping to scrape down sides a couple of times, until everything is finely chopped. Taste and add lemon or lime juice, if needed. Refrigerate and allow flavors to blend for at least an hour before serving. (It’s even better if you let it rest overnight and bring to room temperature before eating.) Spread on good bread or crackers.
