The J family is going to a friend's house to watch the Super Bowl game and snack. We will bring a couple of things that are wheat-free and meat-free (gluten-free crackers, guacamole, rice salad and a new dip which I would love to share with you all:
Shrimp and Artichoke Dip
1 (8 oz. ) pkg. cream cheese, softened
3 Tbsp. chopped red onion
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1-2 tsp. soy sauce (make sure it's wheat-free, as many are not)
1/2 lb. cooked shrimp (I saved some from last night's stir fry, but canned would probably work as well)
1 (14 oz.) can artichoke hearts, drained and rough chopped
kosher salt to taste
Handful of Italian parsley, chopped
1/2 cup sour cream
Place everything in a food processor and blend until smooth. Refrigerate for a few hours to blend flavors.
Here's a photo of this fabulous appetizer, tarted up with some crushed dried rosemary, paprika and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil so that it didn't look so white and bland.
