Helpful hints

  • If canned or jarred artichokes in water are used instead of frozen, look for the lowest sodium brand. Rinse well to help reduce sodium.
  • Try this dip on toasted slices of baguette, crisp celery or with your favorite low-sodium crackers.
  • Tabasco© sauce is one of the lowest sodium hot pepper sauces.

What size baking dish ? Also, once baked, is this good served cold or room temp? Haven't tried it so low rating. Thanks. Dietitian comment: A small 1 quart casserole dish works best, It is meant to be served hot but I believe it is still good cold.

Really sounds delicious! I have 2 questions: 1: What do you do with the chopped artichoke hearts, do you add them to the mayo, sour cream, cream cheese etc. mixture? 2: Do you have to use Parmesan cheese or can you substitute with another type of cheese?(I think Parmesan is salty, is it high in sodium?) I plan on really enjoying this yummy dish when you answer my inquiries! Dietitian comment: Yes you add the chopped artichoke hearts to the mayo mixture. (I've added this to the recipe.) You could substitute a natural cheddar or mozzarella cheese. With only 1 tablespoon you could even omit the cheese.

Made this for a kidney/diabetes challenged friend. Really good! Will make it again for my family regardless of the need to pay attention to salt and protein.

Fantastic! My father is a vegetarian, so I spread a few tablespoons of this on top of a portobello mushroom cap. He has 1/2 a cap with dip for a snack. And I eat the leftovers myself!

I made this for a family dinner. Everyone loved it. If I didn't tell them it was safe for my father to eat no one would have know it was dialysis recipe.

My husband loves this dish, makes him feel like he is cheating on his renal diet. I use this as a filling in the jumbo pasta shells and serve it with Italian Beef. yummy

This is a great dip--it has a great texture as well as taste. Not every store carries frozen artichokes, so read and compare the sodium content on the canned ones. This will be a dip that we will use again!

This was absolutely delicious. Our friends who are not restricted from the items my husband can not eat, gobbled it up.
