Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup cauliflower florets
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups artichoke hearts
  • 1/2 cup coconut cream, softened (use this, or place a can of coconut milk in the fridge overnight and use the cream on top)
  • Optional- 1/3 cup chicken broth (see instructions)
  • 2 tsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp parsley, chopped
  • 3 cups spinach, finely chopped

Instructions

  1. First, steam the cauliflower by adding about 1/2 an inch of water to a pan and bring to a simmer. Add the cauliflower and cover the pan for 5-8 minutes or until the cauliflower is soft. Drain the excess water, and set the cauliflower aside.
  2. Add the avocado oil to a frying pan and bring to medium heat. Saute the onion and garlic until fragrant and translucent. Remove from the pan add to a blender and reserve about 1 tbsp of oil in the pan. Set aside.
  3. Using a high-speed blender, combine all of the ingredients (reserving the spinach) and blend until smooth. Add the chicken broth to make the dip creamier if desired. Spoon into a bowl or serving dish and set aside.
  4. Using the same frying pan, wilt the spinach on medium heat for 1-2 minutes. Stir into the dip and mix well.
  5. Serve the dip warm with simple mills crackers, or vegetables like celery and carrots for AIP & whole30.
