Parmesan is versatile, and I always keep a big hunk of it on hand in my refrigerator. Here, the cheese adds a nutty flavor and helps to bind the artichoke hearts with the other ingredients. The result is a light and tangy dip that’s quick and easy to prepare. Serve it with crostini or crackers.


  • 1 jar (12 oz/375 g) water-packed artichoke hearts
