  1. Two 14-ounce cans artichoke hearts in water, drained and chopped
  2. 4 ounces light silken firm tofu (a scant 1/2 cup)
  3. 1/2 cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt
  4. 1 garlic clove
  5. 1 teaspoon paprika
  6. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  7. 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  8. 1 cup frozen corn kernels, thawed
  9. 1 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese (about 3 ounces)
  10. Freshly snipped chives, for garnish
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. In a food processor, combine half the artichokes with the tofu, yogurt, garlic, paprika, salt and cayenne pepper and puree until smooth. Scrape the mixture into a large bowl and fold in the corn, 3/4 cup of the cheese and the remaining artichokes.
  2. Scrape the mixture into a 8-inch cast-iron skillet or a square glass baking dish and sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup of cheese on top.
  3. Bake the artichoke dip for about 20 minutes, until bubbling. Switch on the broiler and broil the dip 8 inches from the heat for about 2 minutes, until the top is lightly browned. Let stand for 5 minutes, then garnish with snipped chives.
Make Ahead The unbaked dip can be refrigerated overnight. Bring the dip to room temperature before baking. Notes One Serving: 180 cal, 5.5 gm fat, 3.2 gm sat fat, 20 gm carb, 2.9 gm fiber, 10.2 gm protein. Serve With Pita chips and raw vegetables.
