Ingredients in Vegan Cashew Spinach Artichoke Dip

Here are the ingredients in our delicious vegan spinach artichoke dip:

  • 1 cup cashews
  • 2 tablespoons soaking water
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 13.5 oz artichoke hearts
  • 16 ounces frozen spinach
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • Lemon juice

How To Make This Dairy Free Spinach Artichoke Dip

To make this dairy free spinach artichoke dip, we use a homemade cashew cream instead of mayonnaise for less fat and more protein. Here’s our method:

  1. Start by soaking cashews in water for a minimum of 2 hours up to overnight.
  2. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the cashews to a few processor or blender. Add 2 tablespoons of soaking liquid and garlic to the processor and blend until smooth, adding more water if needed.
  3. Transfer to a bowl and fold in spinach, artichoke hearts, nutritional yeast, sea salt and lemon juice.
  4. Place in an oven-proof dish and bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes. Top with red chili flakes if desired and serve with tortilla chips, cucumber slices, crackers, carrot sticks, etc.

Can I Use Fresh Spinach?

While we usually use frozen spinach (thawed and drained/squeezed of all liquid), you can use fresh spinach too. Just cook your spinach by either steaming or sauteing, blanch in ice water and then squeeze out all the liquid. And did we mention that either way, fresh or frozen, spinach has so many health benefits!! Meaning you can eat your vegan spinach artichoke dip & feel good about it to boot!
