If you enjoy spinach artichoke dip, then I can only recommend that you give this recipe a try. It has all the creaminess of a traditional spinach artichoke recipe, without the guilt. There are two options to preparing this dish; once you combine the pasta with the sauce you can either already enjoy, or you can pour it into a baking dish and add the topping to make a delicious pasta bake. The topping is the recommendation for a gluten-free topping, but you can of course always process two slices of bread with nutritional yeast to have a more traditional bread-crumb topping.
As another alternative you can follow steps 2-4 to prepare a vegan spinach artichoke dip. Once you combine the cheeze sauce with the spinach and artichoke and it thickens you will place it in an oven safe dish and bake 20 min. Serve with homemade corn tortilla chips. Anyway you choose, I know you won't be disappointed.

I am constantly amazed at the versatility of nuts. Take this recipe for example. Raw nuts serve as the base for a deliciously smooth and creamy, vegan mayonnaise. Like most of the recipes I share, this one is also ridiculously simple. Just add all the ingredients to a blender and that's it!
Sometimes it can be difficult to get all of the nuts completely blended, and if you have time, it can be good to first process the nuts to a flour like consistency, and then the ingredients will come together even better in the blender. Another option is to add a little more water to the recipe to make sure the blender is able to reach all sections of the mixture. I love this mayo together with homemade fries (as pictured) but it can be used for anything you would typically use mayo for, e.g. pasta salad, sandwich spread, coleslaw, or potato salad.
