Paleo Spinach Artichoke Dip

          It's almost the fourth! We all know what that means, cookouts full of awesome food. If you are looking for Paleo friendly snacks to make, the Spinach Artichoke Dip has to be on your list! I will never miss having this dip at restaurants, because this Paleo recipe tastes even better. It is fun to eat healthy.

  • 2 (14 oz) cans of artichoke hearts
  • 16 oz frozen spinach
  • 1 c cashews
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  1. Add spinach to a large saucepan and begin to simmer over medium heat. Chop the artichoke hearts into smaller pieces before adding to this mix. Sprinkle the spinach and artichoke with a pinch of sea salt.
  2. While the artichoke and spinach cook, get out your food processor.
  3. Add the cashews into the food processor until you get a flour consistency. Next, add the olive oil. You will be wanting a nut butter like texture.
  4. Once your spinach is completely cooked, drained the excess water. Place the spinach and artichoke into a large bowl.
  5. Add the cashew cream as well as other seasonings to the bowl. Mix thoroughly.
  6. Serve!

          I have eaten this with homemade sweet potato chips, mixed with other veggies, on top of meat, or simply by itself!
