The sun is finally shining and the daffodils have begun to bloom, it is officially Springtime! In Spring we see the return of delicious fruits and vegetables that have been missing from our Winter diets.  The farmers markets are beginning to carry items like strawberries, asparagus, cherries, and fresh greens. We love all these fruits and veggies, however, we must say our favorite Spring veggie making a triumphant return is the artichoke.  Artichokes are delicious steamed, added into dishes, and of course in dips! With parties moving outdoors and Spring holidays such as Easter on the horizon, our recipe today: Creamy Artichoke Dip will meet all your needs! This recipe celebrates Spring and it makes the perfect appetizer or snack!

 

Vegan Creamy Artichoke Dip

Prep Time: 15 Minutes  Bake Time: 15-20 Minutes

8 oz Jar of Organic Marinated Artichoke Hearts
1/4 Cup Nutritional Yeast
1 Glove Organic Garlic
1/2 Tsp Paprika
1/4 Tsp Salt
1/4 Tsp Black Pepper

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Chop the garlic finely and set aside.  Drain the artichoke hearts and mash them in a large mixing bowl. Set aside a small amount of the nutritional yeast and paprika (enough for garnish).  Add in the cream cheese, Vegenaise, nutritional yeast, garlic, paprika, salt and pepper.  Mix all ingredients until smooth and creamy and pour into a round casserole dish. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle the top with the left over nutritional yeast and paprika. Serve immediately  with chips, pita chips or bread, sourdough bread, or crackers.
