I love me a warm savory dip! But I don’t love the heavy creams that tend to be the reason for the creaminess of those dips.
You can imagine my delight when I discovered this cream-free recipe for warm spinach artichoke dip. This recipe contains no soy and no dairy, but still retains a delectable creamy quality due to the cashew ricotta “cheese” base. I adapted the recipe to suit my taste buds, and I think you’ll love what I came up with.
This dip is fabulous if you are hosting a party or planning to attend one. You can serve it warm with chopped veggies (or chips and crackers for your non-WLC friends). I am willing to bet nobody will even guess this is a much healthier version of the classic dish.
