Food: No-Oil Bean and Artichoke Dip
Into every party, a dip must fall. And if you are serving things like stuffed mushrooms, you might as well have a few lighter appetizer options for your guests. This is healthy (no oil, no added salt), easy, and open to interpretation. Add different ingredients to your liking – chili powder, spinach, red pepper – anything goes. Voila.
