Have you ever tried the spinach and artichoke dip? It is usually a quite greasy recipe and it is not vegan. I’ve wanted to prepare it for a long time, but I didn’t know how to make it healthy, low in fat and taste good. Many blogs use cashews, but since they are not very cheap or easy to find, I want to use them only when they are essential. In the end I came to the conclusion that the best option was to use tofu and it turned out delicious. Anyway, if you don’t take soy, read the notes section in the recipe box because I give you a couple of options.

It is a perfect dip for special occasions, for day to day or to snack between meals. It’s ready in about 30 minutes, it’s low in fat (if you want you can even remove the tahini to make it even lighter) and anyone can make this recipe because it’s so simple.
