Spinach Artichoke Cashew Dip and Spread
Need a delicious dip/pesto/spread to put on literally anything? This is it. And it’s just a few ingredients…ready in 5 minutes….half raw…lots of iron and chlorophyll rich spinach..and absolutely mouth watering. Nothing beats the flavors of artichoke and spinach combined. I served this warm with some pita chips and everyone loved it. It’s healthy, light, creamy, bursting with flavor, and simple. Spinach is such a great superfood that I think I need to talk about it here.
Spinach Artichoke Dip/Spread
Yields: 1 1/2 cups dip
- 1 can artichoke hearts, drained of liquid
- 2 cups spinach
- 1/2 cup raw cashews soaked overnight in 1 cup water then strained
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1/2 tbsp salt
- 1 tbsp fresh rosemary
- pepper and cayenne to taste
You can make this either 2 ways; throw all the ingredients in the food processor at once, OR cream the cashews first in a blender with the olive oil, then pour that into the food processor with the artichokes, spinach, and the herbs. The first way will have the cashew bits and the second way it will be more of a spread due to the cream.
Heat quickly if desired then serve. Toss with pasta, rice, over bowls, stir fry's, on bread...anything.
