A.A. Roasted Veggie Dip or Spread

Submitted by: SUEATKINS

Roasted veggies, and quite a few Anti-Angiogenic make this a wonderful dip for veggies, or whole grain crackers; or a great spread for sandwiches or flatbreads (or pizza) 10 generous servings as dip for 77 calories each, with lots of fiber and potassium. Once your veggies are roasted, prep time is under 5 minutes in the food processor.

Use as dip for veggie tray with broccoli, cauliflower, black olives, green olives stuffed with garlic, asparagus, cucumber, and whole wheat crackers. 

Use as spread on sandwiches, pizza, and party pinwheels made on Josephs flatbreads. I have increased the number of roasted tomatoes, and it tastes just as good without any other adjustments. Make a day ahead for flavors to meld.

10 halved roasted roma tomatoes 

5 purple onions, quartered or sliced thickly and roasted
10 roasted garlic cloves
10 quarters canned artichokes (I use Centos brand)
2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive OIl
parsley, 10 sprigs
basil, 10 leaves

Roast tomatoes, red or purple onions, and garlic cloves at 300 degrees for 1.5 hours. (cut veg. Place in plastic bag, pour in 2 T olive oil. Arrange on cookie sheet, cut side up on tomatoes.

I roast the peeled garlic cloves with olive oil in a small casserole dish, covered tightly with foil. The garlic might need to be removed first so that it doesn't burn. A whole jar of peeled cloves takes about 45 minutes. When they cool, cloves and oil go back into the jar they came in.

When the roasted vegetables have cooled: Place them, artichokes hearts, oregano, pepper, parsley, and basil in a food processor.

Whirl until completely pureed.
