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!

    We made this on Sunday and my family of four ate the entire thing in one sitting (oops!)

    I’m running the Austin half marathon on Sunday and going to a pre-run potluck with friends who are also running with me and this is what I’m brining!

  3. We just made this about an hour ago. I cut the recipe by half to try it out the first time. The kids and I devoured it in one sitting! Soooo yummy. They have asked when we came make it again. Thanks for another great, and healthy, snack!

    • So glad you enjoyed it!! I know I’m always happy when I find something my kids will eat! :-)

    I have frozen artichoke hearts. Do you know how much I should use to substitute the caned ones? The frozen ones are in .9oz packages. I would imagine maybe 2 of those and some water, but I am not good at guessing:) Thanks

    • Yes, try two packages and eyeball the moisture content. :-)

        Thanks! I tried it with 2 and did about 3/4 cup of water and it worked great. I thawed them in the fridge first and then put them in with the frozen spinach. Yum!

    9 oz not .9 oz :)
