Baby Artichoke Hearts: What would an artichoke dip recipe be without artichokes? We recommend using Reese's Delicate Baby Artichoke Hearts, as they are excellent in quality and flavor, while still being affordable.
Silken Tofu: creates a creamy dairy-free base for our dip, while providing healthy protein, vitamins, and minerals. Using silken tofu allows this dip to be oil-free, but if wished, swap it out for white beans or oil-based vegan mayo and sour cream.
Baby Spinach: compliments the flavor of artichokes, and adds nutrients, texture, and color to the dip.
Miso Paste: Adding miso will give this artichoke dip a fabulous umami flavor!
