This simple dish is fun as a dip, a spread on a whole-grain wrap, or in a tomato soup for added flavor.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups artichoke hearts, jarred
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled
  • Pinch sea salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. Drain artichokes in a colander to remove excess oil.
  2. Put artichokes, cloves and rosemary in a food processor and puree.

Tip: For an aromatic boost, add two sprigs of fresh rosemary.

Fit Fact: Jerusalem artichokes contain prebiotics, the gut-friendly bugs that tag-team with probiotics to improve digestive health.
