Guilt-Free Spinach Artichoke Dip

Sharing is caring!

The tell me it’s football season. I don’t watch football so for me it translates into “Football Food Season.” If you get together with friends to watch the game you know most of the food is like fatty death on a platter. Yes, I just said that. Hot wings, Deep-Fried ______ (fill in the blank), Chips & Dips that are full of fat and dairy, and lets not forget all of that Cheese.

Now let me introduce you to my Guilt-Free Spinach Artichoke Dip. That sound is the Hallelujah Chorus.

Guilt Free Vegan Spinach Artichoke Dip

I’ve been sitting on this recipe all summer just waiting to let it debut. It was actually featured in one of the classes I taught this summer. You don’t have to save it for football. It’s perfectly suited for movie nights, pre-dinner (or post-dinner) snacks, on a sandwich or wrap, or to make when you are all by yourself and don’t want to share.

Guilt Free Vegan Spinach Artichoke Dip

Spinach Artichoke Dip (Vegan and Nut Free)


  • 1 ½ cup warm white beans (I use Great Northern)
  • ½ cup water (more or less)
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • ½ cup artichoke hearts (I use jarred, without oil)
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 cup raw spinach


  1. Puree beans, water and spices in a food processor or high-powered blender, I use my Blendtec.
  2. Add artichoke hearts and lemon juice and pulse slightly until it reaches desired texture.
  3. Pour dip into heat safe container (I use an oven safe casserole dish). Rip spinach into smaller pieces and mix into dip.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes at 350° or until warm.


This dip is great with crackers or chips but also really good on bread or in a wrap. This is oil-free and diary-free but tastes sinfully good.

You can also keep it warm in a Little Triple Dipper (but add a little more liquid), along with Faux Cheese Sauce and other Chili.

  1. Wow, this looks absolutely delicious!! Will definitely be trying!

  2. Holly, could this be made using frozen chopped spinach? Thanks!

    • HI Kim, It can but make sure you squeeze any excess liquid out of the spinach once it thaws. The color may be a little different but it will taste great.

      • Thank you Holly. I’m making it for Christmas. BTW, thanks for that link for Little Triple Dipper. I had no idea it existed but it would be handy.

  3. I made this tonight, and it was WONDERFUL! (I did sub in frozen, thawed, squeezed dry spinach – and it worked great) Just two of us ate all but the last spoonful – it really is addictive – in a good way : )

    • Anna I’ve been wanting to make it again! We love it too! I never thought I’d be able to have Spinach Artichoke dip again but I’m so glad that this fits the bill. 🙂

  4. A Print button would be so helpful!

    • Hi Lee, there is a print button on the bottom of the post after the “Share this” area that has other social media and an email option. This will print the whole post including the sidebars so you may want to select the area you want and right click, then press print selection.

      I’ve considered using a recipe plugin but I’d have to update every recipe and sometime the plugins stop working.

      Let me know if that print options works for you.

  5. What temperature to you bake it at for the 20 minutes? I’m thinking 350, but not sure. Thanks!

    • Hi Lori, 350 degrees perfect. I just updated the post with that info. You can use a lower temp if needed through (to bake two things at the same time.)

  6. I made this as written with great northern beans prepared from dry, and fresh spinach. It was pretty great and my picky-eater husband and I finished it off in an afternoon with some tortilla chips and crackers. I think next time I’ll try a little more garlic and lemon juice, and maybe frozen spinach instead of fresh. Thanks for the fun dip recipe!

  7. Made this today, its my new favorite dip, I love spinach artichoke dip but had to give it up when I went vegan, this is soooooo good!!

    • Thank you Kathy! I’m so happy you loved this dip! I loved traditional dip and missed it after eliminating dairy.
      You’ll like the Green Chili White Bean dip too!

  8. I am going to make this for my friends who always whine about me bringing healthy food. I bet there will be no whining! Thank you for sharing!

  9. HELP- how much frozen wrung dry spinach do you use?? I weigh fresh spinach after trying a recipe & liking it- so I know how much- not dependent on how tight I stuff the measuring cup lol.. Thank you- want to try for New Years Day!!

    • Hi Hope,
      Sorry for the delay! I think half a cup of frozen spinach would work. You could do more and it wouldn’t effect the flavor in a bad way. I’d jut chop it up so you aren’t left with any long stems.

What do YOU think?
