Spinach Artichoke Dip

(Comments)

One of my all time favorite appetizers before vegan, was spinach artichoke dip. I still kept it as a fave after wards, making it at home since I have never seen it in a restaurant. But I used to make it with processed vegan cheeses as the mase. It was very simple to make and delicious, but lacked the healthy aspect that I like to apply to pretty much everythin I eat now. 

This dip has it all. Starting with my Tofu mayo, this recipe checks all the boxes. Its low fat, no processed ingredients, low sodium and it tastes amazing.

I made this in about 10 minutes and it was in the oven and ready to eat in no time, making one of those great lat minute guests recipes as well as an easy weeknight snack. I dipped gluten-free crackers, but it would also be great with flatbreads, homemade tortilla chips or crudite.
