Artichoke Dip

What you need: 

2 cans of artichoke hearts
soy cream cheese
whole wheat pita bread
optional: frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
vegan parmesean cheese

What you do: 

This is my friends favorite food. They all beg me for it when they come over. :-) Preheat the oven to 375- Open and drain the artichoke hearts. Then cut them up into little pieces (Howe'ver small you want) and put into a baking dish (I use a glass pie dish, which is the perfect size) Then add approximately 4 tablespoons Nayonaise and 2 tablespoons vegan cream cheese, and stir together. You can add more or less to taste, but the artichokes should be coated so they don't dry out when you bake them. If you want, you can also add chopped spinach at this point, just make sure if it was frozen that you drain it really well first. Also, you can add a little bit of vegan parmesean cheese. Once everything is mixed together, stick it in the oven for 15-30 minutes until everything is hot and gooey. If you want to leave it in a little longer the top will start to get a little crispy.
Serve with warm whole wheat pita, or, if you're hungry and desperate, its also good on vegan crackers or tortillas. I'm not vegan, so I usually use regular cream cheese but I do use nayonnaise and veggie parmesean, both of which are great in this recipe. :-)

i like this but  have  had the  unhealhy    and i need that  more  creamier  but healthier  thing..maybe more  cream cheese?


This is really good.  I HATE nayonaise so I used veganaise insteadl.  I use one can of artichokes and add more cream cheese to get a nice cheesy flavor.  I also add spinach, salt, garlic powder, onion powder and sometimes pepper, if I want a little kick.  I serve it with chips and  prefer this to cheese based artichoke dip :)


Yum.  It does need a little more flavor, I used some garlic and onion powder but not nearly enough.  It was delicious; my non veg husband ate it up.


i just added some granulated garlic and salt and pepper, and it made the recipe ten times better.  my mum and i LOVE IT!


not bad, not bad at all. 


oh, also crushed cashews and nutritional yeast.


Since you add the ingredients as you go, it's hard to mess this one up.  I added some chopped spinach, onion powder and garlic powder - it all came out very well!
