I found this on the net:



Spinach Artichoke Dip



---------------------------------------------

Oooh, this is a favorite in our house. We generally eat this with pita chips or tortilla chips and we prefer it warm.



6 oz fresh spinach

6 oz jar artichoke hearts

1 clove garlic, minced

1/4 cup nutritional yeast

1 tsp veg broth powder (or veg. chicken broth powder)

1/4 -1/2 cup rice milk

2 tbsp flour

1/4 tsp salt

pepper to taste

olive oil





Heat a few tbsps of olive oil in pan. Saute spinach and garlic until spinach is wilted. Remove from pan into food processor or chopper and add in the artichoke hearts. Process until well chopped. Put back into pan. Add yeast, broth powder, flour, sald and pepper. Mix together well. Turn the heat on and add the rice milk, cook to thicken to desired consistency.

Frozen spinach actually works better in dip in my opinion... for some reason when I use cooked, fresh, I never get all the moisture squeezed out as well and my dip is watery. In this recipe you cook the spinach with garlic so I wouldn't want to get rid of the liquid after cooking anyway - you'd lose the taste. I would thaw the frozen spinach, squeeze the HECK out of it (I just use my hands) and then heat with garlic, etc as directed....



In looking at the recipe that Diana (and Fafa) posted, it doesn't appear as "creamy" as the classic spinach-artichoke dip (that I'm used to anyway). It still looks really YUMMY though.



Let us know how it turns out, would you? Are you planning on serving it hot or cold?

I've made that before! I processed mine very fine, and it came out with a creamy texture, though obviously not as creamy as a dip made with cream or cream subs.

You know, I've never made it before, although I ate it often before becoming vegan. But the other night, as I was eating black bean dip, I was thinking that you could likely make it quite creamy and tasty with white beans (navy beans, I think?). I think I'm going to have to try that.

Okay so, i use to be vegan for two years, and the reason i stopped a few months back is I have a forbidden passion for cheese. now, i really am looking for a delicious vegan spinach artichoke dip but i have not been able to find one... any suggestions?

mod note merged threads.



non-mod note OH HAI! I didn't even realize that was, also, SDG's recipe. Maybe I should pay more attention.
