  • ½ cup unsweetened almond milk or preferred milk
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp organic white miso sub with tahini for paleo and Whole30
  • ¾ tsp fine sea salt
  • ½ tsp freshly cracked black pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.

  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and onion and cook until softened, about 5-8 minutes.

    Add the spinach and artichokes to the pan and continue to sauté until the greens are wilted - about 4-7 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat.
