Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw unsalted cashews soaked for 15 mins in boiling or very hot water
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil or olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 1 small yellow onion finely diced
  • 5 cups baby spinach
  • 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
  • ½ cup vegan cream cheese (or regular if not dairy-free) softened
  • 2 tbsp vegan parmesan-style cheese + 1/2 cup for topping, omit for paleo and Whole30
  • fresh chopped parsley

For Serving

  • toasted baguette, plaintain chips, gf chips, gf pitas and/or fresh veggies

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.

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

    Add the prepared spinach to the pan and continue to sauté until the greens are wilted, about 3-4  minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat.

  3. Meanwhile, drain the cashews and add to a high-speed blender. Add the milk, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, miso, salt, pepper, cream cheese and 2 tablespoons of parmesan. Blend on high until completely smooth and creamy.

    Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the dip is hot and bubbly and the cheese is melty. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and freshly cracked black pepper.
