Cream Cheese Spinach & Artichoke Dip {oil-free with gluten-free option}


This is one of those YOU HAVE TO TRY THIS type recipes. It is perfect for parties, holidays, wild Friday nights in…anytime you can make an excuse to make it, it’s perfect for.

By the way, I should add that I served this to a whole crowd of non-vegans and it was devoured within 20 minutes 😉 I am not sure what sparked my want of a spinach artichoke dip, but I am so glad that it happened because this was OUT OF THIS WORLD.

We also included this recipe in our 2017 Vegan Thanksgiving Menu, check it out above!

  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 3 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 12 medium-large cloves garlic
  • 3/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/3 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tsp dry ground mustard
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 cups frozen artichoke hearts, partially thawed and drained
  • 2 cups frozen spinach, partially thawed and drained
  • Italian bread crumbs (below)

Italian Bread Crumbs:

  • 3/4 cup panko bread crumbs (or sub gluten-free bread crumbs)
  • 3 tbsp fresh dill
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground sage
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Serve with bread, crackers, raw veggies, etc.


  1. Preheat oven to 425.
  2. In a high-speed blender or food processor, add the cream cheese, almond milk, lemon juice, garlic, salt, nutritional yeast, dry mustard, and black pepper. Blend until very smooth.
  3. Add in the artichokes and spinach and PULSE them in, being sure to keep a chunky texture!
  4. Add all of the ingredients into an oven safe dish, and bake for 10 minutes.
  5. While that bakes, mix together the breadcrumb recipe.
  6. Remove dip oven, give it a stir, then top with a bit nutritional yeast and the bread crumbs as desired. Place back into the oven for 10 minutes.
  7. Then set oven to broil and broil for 1 minute, or until the top is nicely browned.
  8. Remove, let cool for about 4-5 minutes, and serve warm with bread, crackers, veggies, etc.
