Artichoke Spinach Dip

 

This is another recipe we have made for superbowl festivities last year but it is also great for get togethers and a tasty snack! Use your favourite healthy crackers or chips to dip in and enjoy. This is a really nice option for people who do not do well with dairy yet want a dip that is creamy and delicious.

This is a easy recipe to make you just need to make sure you soak the cashews before for at least 1 hour.

For the artichokes you can either use fresh artichokes or you can use artichokes from a jar. If you would like to use fresh artichokes I would recommend boiling them for 35-40 minutes, allowing them to cool then scraping out the edible part. This is a good video guideĀ 

Ingredients:

1 cup Soaked Cashews
1/4 cup Nutritional Yeast
2 tbsp Lemon Juice
1/4 cup Filtered Water
3/4 cup Artichokes
2 cups Spinach
2 cloves of Garlic
1/4 tsp Salt
Pepper to taste

Instructions:

1. Soak you cashews for an hour. While this is happening cook your raw artichoke if using a fresh one
2. Once the artichoke is done scrape out the edible part into a measuring cup
3. Add the soaked cashews, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, filtered water, garlic, salt, pepper to a food processor. Mix until it is smooth
4. Heat up water until steaming. Place the spinach in a steamer and steam for 2 minutes
5. Add the artichoke and spinach to food processor and pulse until mixed
6. Enjoy!
