Creamy Vegan Spinach and Artichoke Dip Recipe Preview







This easy vegan spinach and artichoke dip recipe is perfect as a starter or nibble dish to share with friends and loved ones. The original recipe uses cream cheese and parmesan to make a rich dip, but in this vegan version, we have replaced dairy with other tasty and nutritious ingredients.

Also, this recipe is gluten-free and nut-free, perfect for folks with food allergies. We specialise in diet and allergen-friendly recipes and you can find more by using our Smart Search function.

But let's get back to this dip recipe. We made it with a creamy blend of white beans, tahini, and nutritional yeast, spiced up with black pepper and cayenne pepper.

Together these ingredients give all the flavour and nutrients you need to make this vegan dip recipe shine:

  • White beans provide proteins, fibres, and iron and when blended they give a smooth and rich consistency to the cream.

  • Nutritional Yeast is a great substitute to parmesan, and it has a salty nutty flavour. It’s also high in B-group vitamins, which support your metabolism.

  • Tahini is a raw sesame paste, and it provides those nutrients which might lack in a vegan diet like calcium, iron, and proteins.

Most recipes for spinach and artichoke dip use frozen spinach, but we wanted to show you how easy it is to use raw fresh spinach instead. It makes the whole dish taste much better!

Make sure you enjoy this dip hot or warm with some crunchy wholemeal pitta or anything else you fancy!
