Warm Spinach Artichoke Dip

Spinach Artichoke Dip

Another beautiful weekend is upon us and I am already thinking about the dips that has become the tradition in our family. I am tackling a classic this time, with a few twists.

The spinach artichoke dip is interesting. Even the people who don’t like spinach and/or artichoke are strangely into this one. My version is enjoyed warm and made vegan. The cream is made with soft tofu, incorporating a good kick of protein into it. I always keep some frozen spinach in the freezer and I also usually have a can or jar of marinated artichokes. So it is really easy to put together on a whim. Here is the recipe:
