Recipe of the week

Here is my recipe of the week – Artichoke Tarts. I found the recipe on the Weight Watchers website.

Sometimes, my husband and I will just have appetizers for supper and last Friday, this is what we did. This was one of the appetizers we had and it was so yummy! I highly suggest using Nasoya brand for the wonton wrappers. I have found they are the best. I have tried Melissa’s brand and I have found them to be a little to floury.

Happy Appetizering!

Artichoke Tarts

Cooking spray

16 wonton wrappers

1/4 cup low-fat or fat-free shredded cheddar cheese

4 tbsp fat-free cream cheese, softened

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

1/2 tbsp Dijon mustard

2 tbsp sweet red peppers, chopped

7 oz canned artichoke hearts, without oil, drained and chopped

1/4 cup parsley, fresh

1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

2. Coat a 16-hole miniature muffin pan with cooking spray. Gently press 1 wonton wrapper into each muffin hole, allowing ends to extend above cups. Coat edges of wrappers with cooking spray and set aside.

3. Combine cheeses, cayenne pepper and mustard in a medium bowl; mix well. Stir in red pepper and artichoke hearts; spoon about 1 teaspoon of cheese mixture into each muffin cup.

4. Bake until cheese mixture is set and edges of wrappers are lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Garnish with parsley and serve.
