Questions about lactose-free artichoke dip

Intrigued by our delicious recipe? Before making your lactose-free artichoke dip, read our questions and answers below – then get cooking and enjoy your delicious snack!

Can you use fresh artichokes for a lactose-free artichoke dip?
We opted for canned or jarred artichokes in this recipe to make it easier and quicker, but you can also use fresh artichokes. With fresh ones, use approx. 1.3-1.6 kg. Rinse them under cold water and pull off any small or discoloured lower petals. Cut stems close to the base, then cut off the top quarter and any spiky tips of petals. Steam, boil, or pressure cook them until tender. Let them cool, cut in half, and scoop out the fuzzy centre as well as any small, purple leaves. They are now ready to use in the dip!
Can you freeze lactose-free artichoke dip?
We do not recommend freezing our lactose-free artichoke dip, but it is not impossible. Freezing it might make it separate and change the texture in general, making becoming watery. So, it is better to whip up a new batch when you are in the mood for more instead of saving your leftovers in the freezer! However, it will keep for up to 3-4 days stored in the fridge.
What to serve with lactose-free artichoke dip?
With its creamy texture and rich flavour, lactose-free artichoke dip is best served with something crunchy. The classic is crispbread! Its subtle nuttiness brings a great balance to the rich and tangy flavour that comes with the dip, and they are also easy to make as well! You can also serve it with crunchy vegetable sticks, chips, or the like.
