Ingredients for Vegan Spinach Artichoke Dip

Cashews: The cashews are what helps this recipe be nice and creamy, just be sure to soak overnight or quick soak them before using.

Garlic: Garlic helps with the flavor of this dish, if on a low FODMAP diet then feel free to omit. If you don’t have garlic, then use about 1 – 1 ½ teaspoons of garlic powder.

Soy Milk: Use whichever non-dairy milk you prefer. I know soy and oat works the best, almond milk does work, but not as well.

Lemon Juice: Lemon juice helps with the flavor, subtle tanginess, and balancing the richness of some of the other ingredients.

Nutritional Yeast: Nutritional yeast is how we get this dip to taste cheesy without using any type of cheese or dairy product.

Onion Powder: Onion powder is also added for flavor, again please omit if on a low FODMAP diet.

Salt: If on a whole food plant-based diet no SOS then omit, this is not vital to the recipe but d

Spinach: The easiest type of spinach to use is frozen chopped spinach, simply take out of your freezer before anything else and it should be thawed enough to use by the time you need it. You could also use fresh spinach, but you’ll need almost twice as much and will need to blanch it before using it in the recipe.

Artichokes: I have only ever used jarred artichoke hearts for this recipe. To be completely honest, I have never cooked with fresh artichoke before, but if you know how to get fresh artichoke to the same consistency of jarred, then feel free to use fresh!

(Optional) Shredded Mozzarella Vegan Cheese: If on a whole food plant-based diet (or on a strict budget), please omit! It tastes just as amazing with and without it, the vegan cheese simply makes it look prettier in photos.
