Roasted Broccoli Artichoke Dip appetizer recipe is easy to make and has lots of flavor.

OK, I have to admit, at this moment I’m not too excited about this year’s Super Bowl. The way the Patriots rolled against Kansas City, I thought we would be watching try for another title on Super Sunday. Alas, it’s not their year. By Super Sunday I will be ready to watch the game, and cheer on Carolina. Sorry Denver fans, but if Brady and the Pats can’t be there, I can’t pull for our AFC rivals!

Without our local team in the big game, the food will even more central to the day for us. In fact, our hosts have already texted us the menu! We will see if there is a place for this Roasted Broccoli Artichoke Dip in the lineup. I made it for the first time to enjoy while watching the AFC Championship game. The broccoli artichoke dip was a hit–the tarragon and artichoke combine very nicely, and roasted broccoli gives it a bit of a nutty quality to it. But after the tough loss last week, foods served that day might not be invited to the next party!

This Roasted Broccoli Artichoke Dip is easy to make. You can get the other ingredients together while the broccoli roasts, then then puree all the ingredients together in a food processor (including an Amazon link to the kitchen workhorse we use in case you need one!). I served this with pita chips, and that was a tasty combination. You can certainly use raw veggies for a healthy choice too. Speaking of healthy, I recommend the low fat cream cheese for this broccoli artichoke dip to make it a bit lighter.

Pairings for Broccoli Artichoke Dip: We enjoyed a Chardonnay with an earlier version of this dip, so that is a good pairing if you want wine. Most recently, we had this broccoli artichoke dip with a hoppy, IPA style beer, and that was a good combination as well.

Other favorite dips: A long list of great Super Bowl food from the Sunday Supper bloggers follows our recipe. But let me mention two other favorite dips from Cooking Chat as well, so you have plenty of choices. The Super Easy Spicy Green Onion Dip is always a huge hit and takes about 10 minutes to make. Muhammara Spicy Red Pepper Dip has great flavor, and is dairy-free, making it a nice option for a crowd that is likely to include someone that needs to avoid dairy.

      Thanks Tara, it does have great flavor, a bit different than some of the others I make…the tarragon + artichoke does it I’d say.

    Dear David, I’m disappointed in the turnout as well, but I’ll still be tuning in…or rather my family and their friends will, while I prepare the gameday spread! This dip sounds wonderful…what a great appetizer for any occasion. Take care my friend, Catherine

    I like that you used broccoli rather than spinach. A new twist for me to try! Still vivid color in the dip! thanks for sharing.
