Spinach Artichoke Dip

Confession: sometimes I just like to whip this up for myself and eat it.

All of it.
It's so easy and so not bad for you!!

Ingredients:
10 ounces (one bag) spinach
1 tablespoon olive oil
14.5 ounces (one can) artichoke hearts
2 tablespoons vegan mayonnaise
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1-2 teaspoons hot sauce
1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
Salt & Pepper to taste

Directions:
1. In frying pan, heat oil over med-high heat. Add spinach. Sauté until slightly wilted (3-5 minutes).

2. Put spinach and the rest of the ingredients into food processor or blender. Pulse until desired creaminess. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Yields about 2 cups of dip. I suggest serving it with chips or toasted bread. If you're feeling really fancy (Thanksgiving appetizers anyone?), serve with breadsticks and oil-cured olives. Yum!

And since there is no cheese or mayonnaise, it's super low in fat--but still delicious! Another win for vegan cuisine!

  2. Love this recipe. It seems totally doable and nicely healthy!
    p.s. It was fun for me to find out you also play the piano. You should totally perform a recital. Even just one piece. It's such a high!

  3. YUM! That looks really good! I haven't had dairy in 3 weeks, so a "cheeseless" spinach dip sounds absolutely amazing right now!
