Warm vegan spinach & artichoke dip

If you are a spinach and artichoke dip lover like me, you must make this. It’s dense and velvety with generous chunks of artichokes, smooth and cheesy. One bite and it’s hard to stop. It ticks all of the pleasure sensors.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw cashews soaked in water for 2 hours or overnight
  • 1 cup carrots chopped
  • 2/3 cup water Plus extra for boiling carrots
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated onion
  • 1 teaspoon white miso paste omit for a soy-free version
  • 2 big handfuls baby spinach
  • 1 cup quartered artichoke hearts about 8-10 hearts from a jar, drained
  • 1/2 cup yellow onion chopped small
  • Handful tortilla chips Plus extra for serving

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Drain the cashews and set aside.
  • Put carrots in a small pot, cover them in water, and bring the water to a boil. Cook for five minutes or until they are fork tender, and then drain the carrots.
  • In a blender, add the soaked and drained raw cashews, cooked and drained carrots, garlic, nutritional yeast flakes, salt, onion granules, 2/3 cup water, and miso paste. Blend until completely smooth. (Add extra splashes of water, if necessary, for blending.)
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the sauce from the blender, baby spinach, artichoke hearts, and onion.
  • Transfer the mixture to a 1 quart casserole dish. Smooth the top. Crunch a handful of tortilla chips in your hands and cover the top of the dip.
  • Place the dish in the oven and bake uncovered for 25 minutes.
  • Serve immediately with tortilla chips for dipping.
