Creamy Spinach Artichoke Dip

Have you ever used marinated artichokes in salads or dips? I’ve only recently started experimenting with artichokes in new recipes and I’ve really fallen in love with them. It’s amazing how they can take a simple sauce or dip to the next level. This Creamy Spinach Artichoke Dip makes a great party snack with crackers or crudités. You could also add it to salads, wraps or a big bowl of your favorite gluten free noodles for a quick meal on the go!

Creamy Spinach Artichoke Dip

SERVES: 2 large cups

EQUIPMENT: blender, rubber spatula


1 cup white beans (or chickpeas)
1 cup marinated artichoke hearts (see notes below)
½ cup water
¼ cup cashews (or sunflower seeds, white almonds…)
4 to 6 tablespoons nutritional yeast, to taste
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon mustard
1 tablespoon Shiro miso (optional)
Himalayan crystal salt or sea salt and black pepper, to taste
Extra virgin olive oil, to taste (optional)

1 large handful spinach
Mustard seeds & seaweed flakes (optional, for garnish)


  1. Combine white beans, artichoke hearts, water, cashews, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, mustard, miso, salt, pepper and olive oil in a blender. Blend until smooth.
  2. Taste and adjust the seasonings to your liking.
  3. Add the spinach and blend again.
  4. Garnish with mustard seeds and seaweed flakes.


  • This creamy spinach artichoke dip will stay fresh for at least 4 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  • Feel free to add a small clove of garlic to this artichoke dip for extra flavor.
  • I got my marinated artichokes at our local health food store. They had extra virgin olive oil, garlic, basil, parsley, chili and lemon juice. If you’re using ‘natural’ artichokes, add herbs and lemon juice to taste.

Julie, yesterday I made your recipe for Nori Vegan Sushi Rolls with the curried Avocado Chickpea Dip, and thoroughly enjoyed them. Today for the first time, I am giving your easy instructions for nut butters a chance. I’ll let you know how it turned out for me!

This creamy spinach artichoke dip sounds like another winner!

Have a nice week!
