Healthy Creamy Spinach Artichoke Dip – Dairy free – Gluten free – Vegan

IMG_6328

Please disregard the photo that looks like weird scrambled eggs (new photos are coming!). This dip is the business.  For real.  I wasn’t even prepared for how much I was going to like it.  Usually I tweak a recipe multiple times before I even consider blogging it but this was a winner on the first try.  This is the one.

The best part?

It is actually healthy.  Not just healthier than its alternatives.  It is creamy, satisfying, crowd pleasing, and also completely nutritionally sound.  Serve it with sliced veggies or some grain free tortillas and you have magic in your hands.

It also comes together in less than 5 minutes.  You get all the flavor of a traditional spinach artichoke dip for a fraction of the time and calories.

I’m still trying to figure out all of this blogging business.  Anyone who has read my post on ‘three ways to know when it’s time to quit’ know that I dropped out of my college tech program.  The tech world is simply not for me.  But I am PASSIONATE about helping others with autoimmune diseases heal without giving up all the glories of food.

What would life even be without deliciousness?!

So, if you make this and like it, share it on your social media accounts.  I really want to get recipes like this out there so all my autoimmune warrior friends will know that I’m here putting out regular delicious content and can add options like this to their snacking arsenal.

Ingredients:

2 cloves of garlic

2 tbsp. olive oil

1 cup chopped artichoke hearts

4 cups chopped spinach

1/2 cup cashew cheese (can be found at any health focused grocery store)

1/2 cup PLAIN vegan yogurt (can substitute for vegan mayo but it will be higher calorie)

1 tbsp. nutritional yeast

salt and pepper to taste

1 tsp chopped fresh dill (optional)

 

Directions :

Sauté the garlic until fragrant

Add the spinach and let wilt

Toss in chopped artichoke hearts

Stir in the cashew cheese and allow to ‘melt’

Turn off the heat and add the yogurt, nutritional yeast and dill

Stir just until it comes together, should be hot but not boiling

Serve immediately

If you made this and love it tag me @tha_wild_sage and/ or pin it.  I wish you all happy snacking and rapid healing!
