Nothing beats a homemade dip! They're the perfect appetizer: super easy to make, plus much healthier, tastier, and CHEAPER! Unfortunately, most of the store-bought dips have ingredients that I try to avoid in my healthy diet, like preservatives or nasty oils (aka canola oil).
That's why making your own dips is best, you can control everything that goes in and ensure you're only eating good-for-you ingredients. As a good spaniard artichokes are my favorite thing! So, if you love them too, I am sure you will enjoy this good recipe!

FAQs About Fresh Artichoke Dip
Can I add Parmesan cheese to this Fresh Artichoke Dip recipe?
Yes, you can add Parmesan cheese to this recipe for an extra cheesy flavor. However, keep in mind that adding Parmesan will change the recipe from being vegan and dairy-free. Sprinkle grated Parmesan over the artichoke mixture before serving for a delicious twist.
Are tortilla chips a good pairing with this Fresh Artichoke Dip?
Absolutely! Tortilla chips are a fantastic choice for this dip. Their crispiness complements the creamy texture of the dip. You can also try pita chips or any other crunchy snack of your choice. Keep in mind, tortilla chips and pita chips are typically made with flour. For a gluten free option, try gluten free chips, or veggies like carrots and celery!
Can I use cream cheese instead of cashews in this recipe?
Yes, cream cheese can be used as a substitute for cashews to achieve a creamy texture. This alteration will make the dip non-vegan, so it's perfect for those who aren't following a vegan diet. Adjust the quantity to match the richness you desire.
Is it possible to add frozen chopped spinach to this artichoke dip?
Yes, adding frozen chopped spinach is a great idea to enhance the flavor and nutritional value. Make sure to thaw and drain the spinach well before adding it to the artichoke mixture. This addition will give you a delicious spin on the classic hot artichoke dip.
How can I make a hot artichoke dip version of this recipe?
To make a hot artichoke dip, simply mix the prepared artichoke mixture with ingredients like melted butter, sour cream, and a bit of cheese if desired. Place it in a prepared baking dish and bake until it's hot and bubbly. This is perfect for a warm, comforting snack.
What if I only have chopped artichokes instead of artichoke hearts?
Chopped artichoke hearts can be used in this recipe without any issues. They blend well and will still give you a delicious dip. Make sure to drain them well before using to avoid excess moisture in the dip.
Do I need a medium bowl for mixing the ingredients before blending for this recipe?
Yes, a medium bowl or blender jar are required when using a hand blender for this recipe. Combine all ingredients in the bowl, then blend until smooth with the hand blender.
