Healthy Spinach Artichoke Dip

This is my second favorite spinach artichoke dip! (First favorite here!) I’ve made this for a few gatherings and people love it!! My kids love it too, double bonus!! I serve this with fresh veggies on the side. I love using the leftovers in my collard wraps or on sprouted bread for the kids! :-)

Ingredients

  • 2 (14oz) cans artichoke hearts (in water), chopped
  • 16 oz frozen spinach
  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • ~ 1/3 cup water 
  • juice of 1/2 medium-sized lemon (a little under 2 Tbsp)
  • 1 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • smoked paprika, to top (optional) 

Instructions

  1. Add frozen spinach and artichokes to large saucepan over medium heat and cook until thawed, stirring often.
  2. Place cashews in food processor, process until your cashews become a flour then begin to pour in your water until you get a creamy consistency. 
  3. Once your spinach is completely thawed and it’s all good and warm, drain the excess water from your saucepan and add spinach and artichoke to a large bowl.
  4. Add your creamy cashews, lemon juice, nutritional yeast and seasons to the bowl and mix thoroughly. Place in pretty dish, sprinkle with smoked paprika and serve!
  5. You can serve this now or stick it in the oven at 300 for about 10-15 minutes. Both ways are good!
