I am a huge fan of warm dips, especially warm artichoke dips. But I feel that I needed a new vegetable and I was really surprised how good this was, I enjoyed this much better than artichoke.
Hot dips are great for parties just add some crackers or baguette next to it and you will see big smiles of people’s faces.
This dip is warm, savory and creamy and the best part is it is simple to make.
This recipe can be heated in the microwave or baked in the oven.
I prefer the oven baked method because the browned top is nice and crisp with the warm runny dip below.
Either way works well so choose the method that works for you.
What are some of your warm vegetable dips that are not asparagus or artichoke, I would love to hear about it.
Serves: 4-6 people | Prep: 20 minutes
1 – 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
14 ounces of asparagus
1 clove garlic, minced
¼ cup Parmesan cheese, grated
First clean the end of the asparagus and then boil the asparagus in water for 3 minutes. After tree minutes, drain the asparagus and put into a cold water bath.
Using a food processor put the Parmesan cheese, garlic and cream cheese into the mixer and pulse a few times until everything is mixed. Then add the asparagus and pulse a few times again. Do you like it smooth keep mixing otherwise stop while it is chunky
Put this mixture into a microwave and oven save dish; sprinkle some more Parmesan cheese on top.
Microwave on high for 1 minute or until heated through or in the oven for 350F for 10 minutes, or until the mixture is hot and bubbly and the top is browned.
