ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup cashews
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves chopped
  • 1 cup baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 cup artichoke hearts

Directions

1

Soak cashews with water overnight or with boiling water for 1 hour.

2

Heat a large sauté pan with the olive oil over medium heat. When the pan is hot, add the minced garlic and let it cook for a minute. (Watch the garlic dance!) Add spinach and cook until wilted, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat.

3

In a high-speed blender or food processor, mix the cashews, soy milk, salt, cayenne pepper, and lime juice together until you get a creamy sauce. Taste the sauce and adjust seasonings to your liking. Set aside.

4

When the spinach is cool enough to handle, squeeze out excess liquid from spinach. Give the spinach a rough chop.

5

In a medium bowl, mix the spinach, chopped artichokes, and creamy cashew sauce together. Serve dip with your favorite vegetables!
