This dish is magic. It’s creamy, flavour-packed and hard not to eat it all in one sitting. The best part? This Vegan Spinach and Artichoke Dip is actually really easy to make and can be done in 25 minutes- I timed myself. Ok, that’s not the best part. The best part is getting to eat it. This dip is so good it might even sparkle when it comes out of the oven with a beautiful upbeat melody playing in the background- what did I tell you? Magic.
Now, let’s talk about the green colour. This Vegan Spinach and Artichoke Dip is super green, mean and loaded with hella goodness. I know spinach dip isn’t normally as green as the Hulk’s body but I have a picky husband on my hands. And I knew if there were chunks of spinach in this dip, he wasn’t eating it. So, people, you have options. To make it prettier, fold in the spinach and artichokes after everything else has been blended. Or if you have picky people in your life, blend it all baby! Relationships, it’s all about compromise, right?!
here are a few reasons why I love this Vegan Dip, so listen up!
- When it comes out of the oven, this dip is so comforting. It’s creamy and filling but yet so hard to stop until you’ve licked the bowl clean.
- Greens are hidden in it! Ok, so not really hidden because this dip is bright green… But My Picky Husband doesn’t care if he knows there are vegetables in the food, he just doesn’t like the taste of them. And this dish passes the test. He loved it! For those picky kids, maybe tell them the green is from the secret ingredient- Shrek’s boogers.
- 25 minutes, friends. That’s it. That’s all. Some of you MIGHT have to soak your cashews which does evolve a little bit more time but if you have a high-speed blender, there is no need for soaking. Cashews are quite a soft nut which is why soaking isn’t necessary.
- It’s the perfect dish to serve as an appy. This Vegan Artichoke Dip is bound to be a crowd-pleaser because it’s savoury, garlicky, thick and creamy. It’s simply flavour-packed magic.
Artichokes and spinach are two things I would not peg Adam for loving as a dip- but hey, I’m not complaining. The creaminess of this dip comes from some cashews and vegan cream cheese or a soft cheese alternative. I used a cheese alternative from the company Le Grand and it was amazing- I highly recommend this (not sponsored) but if you can’t locate it I think a vegan cream cheese would do the job nicely!
what we learned…
If I haven’t convinced you guys yet that this dip is life-changing, and rainbows might light up the sky when you take a bite, then you’ll just have to try it for yourself. Then you can let me know that I was right. I hope you enjoy and find the magic in this beauty of a dip.
