Cook Time15 Minutes
Ingredients
1 tbsp (15 mL) Western Family Unsalted Butter
1 cup (250 mL) Onion, minced finely
3 Cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp (30 mL) Western Family All-Purpose Flour
1 cup (250 mL) Western Family Chicken Broth
1/2 cup (125 mL) 1% Milk
4 oz (125 g) Western Family Light Cream cheese, cubed
14 oz (398 mL) tin Western Family Artichoke Hearts, drained and chopped
120g tin Western Family Crabmeat, drained
1 tsp (5 mL) Fresh dill, minced
1/2 tsp (2 mL) Salt
1/2 tsp (2 mL) White pepper
1/2 tsp (2 mL) Lemon rind, finely grated

Directions
  1. Melt butter in a heavy-bottomed saucepan. Add onion and garlic and sauté over medium-low heat until onion is soft, about 6 minutes. Be careful not to brown.
  2. Sprinkle with flour and stir for 2 minutes. It will become dry and crumbly. Gradually stir in broth and milk. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
  3. Reduce heat to low and continue to cook until mixture thickens, stirring frequently, about 2 minutes.
  4. Stir in cream cheese and continue to stir until dissolved. Fold in artichokes, crabmeat, seasonings and lemon peel. Add hot sauce if using.
  5. To serve, gently stir in a heavy-bottomed saucepan until bubbly and piping hot. Transfer to a serving dish and serve warm with toast points and endive leaves for dipping.
