I LOVE bringing this vegan spinach dip to parties and family get-togethers. Or sometimes we just enjoy it on the couch while watching Netflix. Haha! It’s the little things that make life great, isn’t it?

WHY THIS SPINACH ARTICHOKE DIP IS SO MUCH HEALTHIER THAN REGULAR SPINACH ARTICHOKE DIP:

And the best thing is that it’s so much healthier than regular spinach artichoke dip. Instead of sour cream, mayonnaise, and Parmesan, this vegan spinach artichoke dip calls for white beans and cashews.

They make it incredibly creamy and healthy at the same time! So this vegan dip is not only super delicious but also packed with protein! For the cheesy flavor, I added nutritional yeast, which is also full of vitamins, minerals, and protein

RECIPE NOTES: 

  • The cashews you use for this dip should be unsalted and not roasted.
  • It’s very important to use a good high speed blender for this spinach artichoke dip. Otherwise the base that is made of cashews and white beans won’t become as creamy. 
  • I used a Vitamix and I didn’t soak the cashews. However, if you want to you can soak them for 4-6 hours or even overnight if you have enough time.
