Super Bowl Snacking

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.
