Ingredients

Spinach Artichoke Mix Ingredients

  • 5 cups fresh spinach
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp refined coconut oil
  • 1 can (14 oz) artichoke hearts, chopped (can also substitute for 1/2 cup chopped red pepper and 1/2 cup chopped onion)

Dairy-Free Base Ingredients

  • 1 cup cashews soaked overnight in water and drained
  • 1/2 cup vegan mayonnaise (I use Hellman's vegan mayo or Veganaise however regular mayo will also work)
  • 2.5 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tbsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp unrefined salt (I use pink Himalayan salt or Celtic sea salt)
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper

Instructions

  1. In a large frying pan, sauté garlic, spinach, red pepper/onion (if you so choose) and oil until the spinach is wilted. Drain and chop artichokes and add to the spinach mixture. Turn heat off and set aside.

  2. In a high speed blender, combine cashews, mayo, lemon juice, water, nutrition yeast, onion powder, salt and pepper and blend on high until smooth. You may have to use a plunger that is designed for your blender/ food processor to push down the ingredients or periodically stop the machine, scrap the sides and continue to blend.

  3. Transfer the blended cashew mixture into the spinach mixture in the large frying pan. Stir the two mixtures together and if eating the dip right away you can heat over low in the frying pan until the dip is warm. The dip can also be serve chilled.

  4. Serve with fresh vegetables (carrots, cucumbers, celery, peppers, etc.), your favourite crackers or corn chips.
