Super Yummy Artichoke Dip - Low Fat, Dairy and Gluten Free

Like the title says, this is super yummy! 

1 cup canned/jarred artichokes, drained
1 TSP chopped garlic clove
1 TBSP chopped shallot
2 TBSP lemon juice
1/4 cup low fat mayo
1/4 cup tinned red or green chili's (less or more - depending on your desired heat)
1/2 cup tinned cannelloni or great northern beans (any type of soft white bean will do)
1/4 tsp dry mustard powder
pinch of salt
pinch of white pepper

In a food processor, finely chop garlic and shallot.  Add remaining ingredients and blend well.  Add artichokes and pulse until artichokes are incorporated into the mixture but don't over chop - you want to be left with some nice chunky pieces.

Garnish with a generous pinch of paprika, a squeeze of lemon and dry chili peppers (if desired). Serve with your favourite chips/cracker.


Try adding a 1/4 cup chopped spinach for another tasty healthy option. 
Substitute egg free mayo for a vegan option.
