 I love spinach and artichoke dip, it is usually one of my favorite recipes to make for a party. It's super easy and so delicious! I love how creamy and cheesy it is, so I wasn’t sure if a dairy-free version of a spinach and artichoke dip was possible…but when it came out creamy, garlicky and perfect on the first attempt, you know you’ve got a winner.  So how does it get creamy? Soaked cashews and my homemade mayonnaise which turns into the most luscious, creamy mixture.

This recipe makes about 4 cups worth, it's actually the perfect amount for a party.  If you are not 100% dairy-free you can throw some shredded parmesan and cream cheese in there to make it even creamier.  But either way, this spinach and artichoke dip is unbelievably good…especially paired with a grain free tortilla chip or regular tortilla chips.
