- 375 ml raw cashews (1 1/2 cups)
- 500 ml unsweetened coconut milk (from a carton, not canned) (2 cups)
- 30 ml fresh lemon juice (about 1 large lemon) (2 tbsp.)
- ± 22.5 ml raw apple cider vinegar (1 1/2 tbsp.)
- 60 ml nutritional yeast (4 tbsp.)
- 5 ml paprika (1 tsp)
- 5 ml garlic powder (1 tsp)
- 5 ml onion powder (1 tsp)
- 0.5 ml or a large pinch of nutmeg
- 2.5 ml salt (add more to taste) (1/2 tsp)
- 1.25 ml black pepper (add more to taste) (1/4 tsp)
- 45 ml low-sodium vegetable broth (3 tbsp.)
- 1 medium red onion diced
- 3 medium garlic cloves minced
- 800 g cans artichoke hearts (in water) rinsed, drained, and roughly chopped (2 x 14 oz.)
- 550g bags frozen spinach (2 x 10 oz.)
- Boil the raw cashews in water and ensure to cover the nuts with enough water as you wish to have it covered with approximately 2.5 cm above the nuts, and then cook it for 10 minutes.
- Once done, you can strain it and toss out the water as you will not use it again.
- Place the cashews, milk, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar nutritional yeast, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, nutmeg, salt, and black pepper into a high-powered blender and blend this mixture until the sauce is smooth and velvety and it coats the back of a spoon and set aside.
- Over medium heat, in a large pan, sauté the onions in the broth until they are soft and transparent.
- Add the artichokes and garlic and continue to sauté for another 2-3 minutes. Should it get too dry, feel free to add a little more broth to the pan.
- Now take the cream sauce which you set aside previously and add this to the pan and stir well and all fully blended and combined.
- At this point, you will add and stir through the still frozen spinach and continue to whisk the entire mixture until you have a nice consistency and smooth dip.
- Proceed and cook it for another 10-15 minutes or until your Vegan Spinach Artichoke Dip is steaming hot and starts to bubble.
- Be mindful that the dip will continue to thicken as it cooks, so if you feel it’s too dry, all you need to do would be to add a little more coconut milk to obtain a super creamy and saucy dip.
