  • This hot goat cheese dip is so addicting! The creamy roasted garlic cloves give it such a rich flavor and the salty Parmesan cheese gives it a great bite! And with artichokes in every mouthful, this is a very hearty dip.

    Roasted Garlic, Goat Cheese & Artichoke Dip
    I served this dip for girls-night-in a few weeks ago when my friend, Anna, came over. It is so filling that we actually had it for dinner. Well, this and wine. Duh!
    If you have never roasted garlic or don’t know how to, check out my easy tutorial. You don’t wanna skip it!
    Roasted Garlic, Goat Cheese & Artichoke Dip
    8 oz goat cheese, slightly softened
    4 oz fat free cream cheese, softened
    3/4 C shredded Parmesan cheese
    14 oz can artichoke hearts in water, drained and roughly chopped
    3 cloves of roasted garlic
    1/2 C grated onion
    1/2 tsp seasoned salt or flavored salt of choice
    1/2 tsp dried basil
    1/2 tsp dried oregano
    1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
    1/4 C shredded Parmesan for topping
    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine everything in a large bowl and mix together. Spread in a baking dish and cover with foil. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and remove foil. Top with remaining 1/4 C Parmesan cheese and return to oven for 5-10 minutes or until Parmesan is melty and slightly golden brown.
    Serve hot with your favorite dippers.
    I like serving this dip with endives because it is a nice presentation. If you are looking for a low-carb appetizer or dip this is a good one for you. Just make sure the dippers you serve it with are low-carb too.
    This dip is very similar to the ah-mazing Cheesy Artichoke Bread I posted a few weeks ago. So if you love goat cheese like I do, this would be a fun smear for crusty bread loaf also. It’s pretty fantastic on whole wheat crackers too!
    This one’s for the goat cheese fanatic! Cheers!

      Is there a way to substitute any type of cheese for the goat cheese?

        Hey there! Well, the goat cheese is the main ingredient in this dish so if you replaced it with something else it would be a different dip entirely. That being said, You could always use just cream cheese or maybe even some feta. I can’t vouch for how those would turn out though because I haven’t tried it that way. Sorry I can’t be more help.
