Dreamy creamy spinach artichoke dip

30 Jun

Honestly this dip should be called Amazeballs Artichoke dip! This is so good. You can make this strict paleo or add a bit of goat cheese at the end to make extra creamy. Which then makes this turn into ‘dreamy creamy’. I got an A+ review from the man, so we know it’s good. I found this recipe on paleoOMG again and I swear if this woman comes up with these off the top of her head she is a friggen food paleo genius.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cans of artichoke hearts 8oz (not in oil, just marinated in water)
  • frozen package of spinach 14oz
  • 1 cup cashews roasted unsalted
  • 2 tbls olive oil
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • Optional 2 oz creamy goat cheese

In a saucepan combine the spinach and artichoke hearts. Cut the artichoke hearts into bits. Sprinkle with spices and salt/pepper. When nice and warm and all mixed up, transfer to a medium serving bowl. Male sure to drain the excess water first.

In a food processor add the cup of cashews and grind until very fine and floury. Add the olive oil and blend in processor until nice and creamy. Here is where you want to add the goat cheese if you want. Blend again and then Add to spinach mixture. You’ll really want to mix and mash this in well until the dip is creamy and delicious looking.

Serve with your favorite veggies!

    I didn’t realize how much better for you this recipe is then a regular recipe. The original calls for 2 cups parmesean cheese, 2/3 cup sour cream, 1/2 cup cream cheese, 1/4 cup mayo. Damn! Even if you add that bit of goat cheese, you area still light years healthier then an original recipe.
