Description

Vegan Spinach Artichoke Dip – a quick and easy appetizer that everyone will love!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups raw cashews (soak overnight in room temperature water or cover with boiling water and let sit for 30 minutes), drain
  • 1/2 cup + 3 Tablespoons Califia BetterHalf Unsweetened Creamer
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup vegan mayo
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 cans large artichokes, drained and quartered
  • 1 Tablespoon olive or avocado oil
  • 2 Teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 Teaspoons minced shallot
  • 1/2 white or yellow onion
  • 1 stalk celery, thinly sliced
  • 8oz fresh spinach

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Bring skillet to medium heat and add oil.
  3. Add garlic and shallots; Move around the pan as they cook down and become fragrant.
  4. Add onion and celery; sprinkle with a little salt and pepper.
  5. Allow to cook 3-5 minutes or until onions are translucent; set aside.
  6. Place cashews in a high-powered blender along with the Califia Farms Unsweetened BetterHalf Creamer. Blend until smooth, about 2-5 minutes; you will need to stop and scrape down the sides a couple times.
  7. Add lemon juice, mayo, salt and pepper. Blend on low to combine.
  8. Add onion mixture and pulse to combine.
  9. Add artichoke and pulse a couple times to combine (only 2-3 times, you don’t want to break down the artichokes very much).
  10. Place artichoke mixture in 8×8 or 9×9 pan and set aside.
  11. Place spinach in a large cast iron skillet and bring to medium heat. Move spinach around as it wilts.
  12. Once spinach is wilted, remove from heat and add to artichoke mixture. Mix to combine.
  13. Place in oven and bake for 5 minutes or until it is warm throughout.
  14. Serve immediately with pita chips or veggies.

Notes

  • Artichokes should be canned in water
  • You can easily make this ahead of time and then just place in the oven to warm before serving.
  • Feel free to also melt some dairy-free cheese on top as well!
