Ever heard of spinach artichoke dip? Well, it’s pretty good, but I’m more of a fan of Vegan Cheesy Kale-Artichoke Dip! The flavor is fresher, the nutrients are richer, and with the tofu base it’s a fun, healthy twist on a classic party dish.
This cheesy Kale Artichoke Dip is super simple to make and is great on a snack board with some chips or crackers, maybe some hummus and maybe even some Mushroom Lentil Pâté!
I highly recommend serving this dip with either some tortilla chips or crackers, but it’s also awesome with toasted baguette slices or even oven baked fries!
Sounds Good, How Do I Make It?
Alright, let’s get into the details. Obviously there’s some kale and artichoke hearts. I started this delicious dip off, though, with some sauteed onions and garlic. Sauteing them first gives them SO much more flavor, so don’t skip this step.
I also mentioned there’s a little tofu in this for texture, but if you’re not a tofu fan you could try subbing soaked cashews. Try the tofu in this though, the cheesy flavor is worth it!
For extra texture and cheesiness, I’ve added more nutritional yeast on top for a breadcrumbs-like effect, but feel free to use actual breadcrumbs, vegan cheese (highly recommended!), or skip it.
Then all you have to do is throw it in the oven for a half hour and bake it until it’s gooey and golden brown, yum!
