Easy Vegan Spinach and Artichoke Dip Recipe

This vegan spinach and artichoke dip is so creamy and delicious!

 

Spinach artichoke dips are always a favorite in our house, especially for the holidays and other get-togethers – there’s nothing like a freshly baked artichoke dip.

 

While most recipes have cheese in them, this one uses blended cashews with tons of flavors as an alternative, and you’ll be amazed at how much it resembles the classic recipe in texture and taste!

Healthy and Dairy Free Vegan Appetizer

This is my most favorite dip ever, (I’ve used a similar version of it in my Spinach Puff Pastries too) and I love whipping this up on busy mornings because it’s so quick to make.

 

It has all natural ingredients and is actually super healthy, full of greens and healthy fats!

 

It’s the perfect easy recipe to make for any party, and is especially great because it’s allergen friendly and free of dairy and gluten.

You can serve this tasty appetizer with chips, wheat thins, veggies or bread – I went the bread route and stuffed an entire bread bowl with my freshly baked dip!

 

To do this, just cut out a circle about half way through, carefully pull it out and then pull out a few more pieces to make more room, just be careful to not pull too much or your dip could burst through.

 

I love using these pieces as a way to dip/grab the appetizer!

How to Make The Best Vegan Spinach Artichoke Dip

Preparing The Base

The first step in making this appetizer or snack is to have your cashews soaked. You can do this by soaking them in hot water for at least 5 minutes or in room temperature water overnight until they are soft.

 

If you’re using frozen spinach, let it thaw and then drain it very well to remove as much moisture as possible.

 

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees, and then add your drained cashews, plant milk, lemon juice and seasonings to a blender and blend until smooth!

 

Pour the mixture into a large bowl and set aside.

Mixing and Baking The Dip

Roughly chop your artichoke and spinach and then toss into the bowl with the cashew mixture and mix well.

 

Take a 9 inch baking dish and spray it with non-stick spray or a bit of oil and pour mixture in.

 

Bake for 20 minutes – if it’s not as browned as you’d like, you can broil it for a bit, just be sure to watch it constantly so it doesn’t burn!

This smells AMAZING while it’s baking and when it comes out of the oven, the garlic/dill/lemon flavors are so strong and make the house smell amazing.

 

I topped mine off with just a bit more salt, pepper and dill – you can use dried if that’s all you have, but fresh dill is also delicious and perfect with this recipe.

Creamy Cashew Spinach Artichoke Dip

I love using cashews as a neutral base for sauces and other dips  – it’s such a yummy way to get that creamy texture, and you can add all sorts of ingredients to it to make it anything you need, just be sure they are soaked first.

 

There’s a ton of dip recipes using things like vegan cream cheese or sour cream, but I love using the most natural ingredients possible whenever I cook, so cashews are a great alternative. 

 

Don’t worry, you don’t even taste them in this dip, they just create the texture and hold all the amazing flavors together!

  • 3/4 Tsp Salt (or to taste)
  • 1/8 Tsp Pepper (or to taste)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Once cashews are soaked, drain and add to a blender along with the dill, nutritional yeast, plant milk, lemon juice, garlic powder, salt and peper. Blend until creamy and smooth and pour into a large bowl.
  3. Roughly chop spinach and artichoke hearts and add to bowl, mix well.

Notes

*Soak your cashews in hot water for at least 5 minutes, or overnight in room temperature water to soften them for blending.

**Let the spinach sit on the counter for at least an hour or until softened, and remove as such moisture as possible. You can also microwave it in 15-30 second increments until soft to speed up this process.
