Artichoke & Cauliflower 3-Cheese Dip

An easy alternative to the same `ole spinach and artichoke dip. This recipe can be used for both Weight Watchers and KETO diet plans by simply changing out the types of cheeses used. WW point values in notes.


  • 1 head of cauliflower, leaves and stems removed, chopped
  • 12 Dorot frozen garlic cubes
  • 1 can artichokes with water drained
  • 1.5 cups of chicken or vegetable stock (divided)
  • 1.5 cups of cheese – total amount: Sharp Cheddar, Parmigiano Reggiano, Light or Regular Cream Cheese (You can use whatever cheese you like. See notes for WW suggestion.)
  • Salt and Pepper — season to taste
  • Paprika


  • Set up your Instant Pot Steam with a steamer insert; pour in a cup of chicken or vegetable stock and 1-2 garlic cloves or Dorot garlic cubes
  • Using the “steam” setting, cook the cauliflower and artichokes in an Instant Pot for 3 minutes and do a quick release
  • Save the liquid – you may need it to add to the mixture when blending the cheese
  • Transfer the cauliflower and artichokes into a food processor and pulse (or hand mash) to the texture and size you prefer. If the veggies are too “stiff” add some of the left over liquid.
  • Transfer to a baking dish and add your choice of cheeses and mix the ingredients
  • Top with extra cheese and a dash of paprika (optional)
  • Pop it in the broiler or high oven until the cheese is bubbly


In the past, I’ve added mild (or hot) green chiles to give it a twist in flavor and for changing up the taste, I’ve added cumin for that dark, richness that spice offers.

For a dip, serve with veggies or use it as a bed for grilled chicken or salmon.

Optional: add butter or GHEE, or cream to richen up the recipe.

This recipe is 1 WW Smart Points when made with 1.5 cups of fat-free shredded cheddar and 2 tbs non-fat sour cream. You can also use 2 tbs fat free cream cheese. Mix and match according to what cheese you like and their smart point values.
