Artichokes, according legend, were created when the Greek god Zeus turned his object of affection into a thistle after being rejected. In the past the artichoke has been considered an aphrodisiac, a diuretic, a breath freshener, and even a deodorant. Because of their tough exterior, artichokes  take some careful preparation, but it’s well worth the hard work because not only are they are a good source of folate, dietary fiber, and vitamins C and K, but they are also packed with antioxidants.

We hope you enjoy this easy artichoke dip recipe:
