Healthy Spinach Artichoke Dip

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup of cannellini beans, if using canned-drain and rinse, save the remaining to add into a soup, top a salad, or add to a sauce (you can also double this recipe)
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • ¼-1/2 tsp salt (start with less)
  • ½ tsp ground mustard
  • 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 cups artichoke hearts (I used canned, rinsed and drained, but you can use frozen)
  • 2 cups packed spinach leaves
  • ¾ cup non-dairy milk, I used unsweetened vanilla almond
  • freshly ground pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Place all ingredients into a blender, season with black pepper to taste. If desiring more chunk, don't blend completely, add enough "milk" to create desired thickness of dip.
  3. Pour into a small shallow baking dish (no need for greasing) and bake for about 30-40 minutes, until top has browned slightly. Can be made ahead of time and re-warmed as well. Don't cook fully if doing this, so you don't dry it out.
  4. Serve with fresh veggies, tortilla chips, or as a meal on top of a sweet potato!
