How to Make a great Spinach Artichoke Dip
- The base for this creamy dip is a mix of nuts. Cashews can get pretty expensive, so I use them in combination with walnuts or other nuts for the sauce.
- Additional thickener such as tapioca starch also helps make a creamy thick dip without needing cups and cups of nuts.
- The dip is getting cooked on a skillet, so taste and adjust to preference in the process.
- The dip is easily made glutenfree with gf breadcrumbs or omitting the breadcrumb topping, or use vegan parmesan topping instead.
- For nut-free, use pumpkin seeds and some tofu for volume.
