Easy & Delicious Vegan Spinach Dip

Easy & Delicious Vegan Spinach Dip- a lightened up take on a classic!

Easy & Delicious Vegan Spinach Dip

Rich and creamy spinach dip is always a crowd pleaser at parties. Unfortunately, there’s nothing healthy about it! Traditional spinach dip is loaded with mayonnaise, sour cream, and cheese. This Easy & Delicious Vegan Spinach Dip is the perfect guilt-free substitute! Silken tofu takes the place of the mayo and sour cream. Nutritional yeast adds the nutty flavor of cheese without the added sodium and saturated fat.

Nutritional yeast has become one of my pantry staples. If you haven’t tried it, I highly recommend it! The name is a little off-putting but the flavor is cheese-like and it’s loaded with vitamins and protein. I use it in recipes but it’s also great sprinkled on top of veggies or pasta. So far, I prefer it over any of the vegan cheeses I’ve tried.

This Vegan Spinach Dip is the perfect compliment for a crudité platter or spread on some sourdough bread.

Enjoy!
