This vegan spinach artichoke dip is by far THE BEST recipe I’ve come across! Spinach and artichoke hearts are baked in a creamy cashew sauce creating this ridiculously good appetizer. Great served with crackers, chips, bread or veggies.
Tips to making the best spinach artichoke dip
- Defrost and DRY the spinach. Gently press/pat the thawed spinach between a few paper towels to remove some of the excess moisture. If necessary, repeat this step 1-2 times.
- Soak the cashews. Bring 1-2 cups of water to a boil. Turn off the heat add the cashews and soak for 10-15 minutes to soften. This will make them easier to blend into a creamy sauce.
- Drain, rinse and dry the artichoke hearts. Discard the liquid from the can of artichoke hearts. Fill the can back up with clean water and drain again to rinse. Squeeze out any excess moisture with paper towels or a kitchen towel. If necessary, repeat this step 1-2 times. Also, for best texture I’d recommend pulling off and discarding any tough outer petals if needed.

To blend or not to blend?
Vegan spinach artichoke dip can be made 2 ways; chopping the spinach and artichoke or blending them with the sauce.
For a chunkier dip – chop the spinach and artichoke then mix with the sauce per the recipe. This is my preferred method for the best flavor.
For a more blended dip – simply add the spinach and artichoke hearts to the blender after blending the sauce. Pulse everything together a few times to create a finer chop. Using this method I’ve noticed the seasonings needed to be increased a bit. Taste and adjust to your liking.
