Tips for this vegan spinach and artichoke dip:
- You can use either fresh or frozen spinach to make this dip. If you use frozen, you will just need to sauté it for slightly longer than if you use fresh
- Make sure you drain all the water from the canned artichoke hearts (this will help ensure the dip doesn’t turn out runny)
- It stores really well in the fridge and makes great leftovers
- It can also be used as a sauce for casserole dishes
- Serve this dip with crackers, chips or chopped raw vegetables – These Simple Mills Crackers are my favourite grain free and paleo crackers (Note that crackers and chips are not allowed on the Whole30 diet)
- I used canned artichoke hearts for this recipe which are easy to find all year round in the grocery store
Frequently Asked Questions:
How do you thicken spinach artichoke dip? You shouldn’t need to thicken this dip, but if you do find it a bit thin I would ensure you sauté the spinach mixture a little longer to remove all the excess water from the spinach. Also make sure you drain all the water from the artichokes before adding them to the pan.
What crackers go best with artichoke dip? I personally love these Simple Mills Almond Flour Crackers which are safe for the paleo diet.
What do you eat spinach dip with? I love pairing this dairy free spinach artichoke dip with cut raw vegetables, grain free crackers or potato chips. If you are paleo the only grain free crackers I know of are Simple Mills crackers (these ones are my favourite). Note that crackers and chips are not allowed on the Whole30 diet.
