One afternoon, two friends and I licked a dish clean containing the best artichoke dip we had ever tasted. I could not quite figure out what made it so ethereal. Waiter shared that one order contained a whole package of cream cheese. With that tidbit, we felt very abused!

This lighter version of the classic truly showcases the artichokes and Parmesan - it's made super easy with Knorr dried soup mix as the secret ingredient.


  • Two 14-ounce can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • One packet, Knorr Leek Soup Mix
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice (1/2 fresh lemon)
  • 3 tablespoons Hellmann's Light Mayonnaise
  • One, 6-ounce cup Fage Total Greek yogurt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  • Blend the artichokes, Parmesan, soup mix, garlic, lemon juice, mayonnaise, yogurt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper - spoon into a shallow baking dish.
  • Refrigerate until ready to bake and serve.
  • Preheat oven to 375 F and bake 30 to 40 minutes, until bubbling and lightly browned.
  • Serve with Toasted Pita Crisps or sliced toasted bread for others, and with sliced mini bell peppers and other cut veggies for you.
