Making this Easy Spinach Artichoke Dip

With only a handful of ingredients, this easy appetizer comes together in just a few minutes! Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Canned artichoke hearts – You’ll roughly chop these so if you can get them already chopped in the can that’s even easier!
  • Mayo – Store-bought or you can make your own avocado oil mayonnaise.
  • Nutritional yeast – Adds a cheesy flavor to the dip while keeping it dairy-free.
  • Fresh spinach – We prefer fresh over frozen because it’s less watery.
  • Fresh garlic – An absolute must for any dip!

That’s it – you’ll just mix all these ingredients together and bake in a casserole dish for 20 minutes. In no time you’ll be enjoying this rich and creamy dip.

Healthy Spinach Artichoke Dip (5-Minute Prep)

36 thoughts on “Healthy Spinach Artichoke Dip (5-Minute Prep)

  • I used frozen spinach and cut the mayo in half. If you do use frozen spinach it needs to be thawed completely and once thawed completely squeeze out all excess water. Awesome recipe- never cooked with nutritional yeast and it had a nice cheesy flavor. Uncle Bob’s is the way to go.

    Will be using leftover dip by stuffing into two chicken breasts and baking for dinner.

  • So easy and so delicious! I added some leftover chopped grilled chicken I had on hand which went really well with all the flavors. Will definitely make again!

    • Love hearing it was a hit! Thanks so much for coming to our site to leave a rating and review! And thanks for sharing on Instagram too. We appreciate it so much! 🙂

  • So so so GOOD! I’ve never used nutritional yeast and I was really missing out! This is excellent flavor packed. Add water chestnuts if you want a crunchy pop!

  • This dip is a party favorite. It tastes very much like the original and is delicious with fresh veggies, crackers or chips.

  • Delicious! Simple.
    I added a little soft goat cheese, and adjusted the garlic because I don’t tolerate it that well.
    Didn’t have spinach, so used mixed greens.
    The nutritional yeast added sooo much flavor.

  • What, if anything, can I use in place of mayo? I have never liked mayo or sour cream – regular, Healthy, vegan or otherwise!! Could I use a dairy free yogurt??

    Thank you so much!!

    • Hi Melissa – We haven’t tried any alternatives personally but dairy free yogurt seems like it would be the best option. You could also try our Alfredo sauce as a substitute, just watch it carefully when you cook it in the oven as it can dry out on the top and edges. You’ll have to report back if you try one of these.

      • Thank you so much for getting back to me! I tried the recipe with your vegan alfredo sauce, per your suggestion, and it.was.AMAZING.!!!!! Thanks for the tip!!! We couldn’t stop eating it!!!

  • I made this for a party due to some of our friends having special diet restrictions – GONE IN 60 SECONDS! Eaten by everyone, restrictions or not. It was so good!

    • We love hearing that SO much! We always take this dip to get togethers and everyone loves it! Glad you had the same experience! Thanks for coming back to share and rate our recipe! 🙂

  • Pretty good. I thought it needed a little salt and/or other seasoning. I did sneak in a little parmesan. I heated up some of the leftovers with some spaghetti squash, and it was an excellent meal. I’d make again.

  • This is one of my favorite artichoke dip recipes! It is creamy deliciousness and so easy to make!!

  • Absolutely should cook the spinach beforehand. It was a weird texture, and the garlic could have done with a little sauté, too. I added some Dijon mustard and that was nice. I liked the flavor, but the texture was not great because the spinach and garlic were raw when they went in the oven.

    • Interesting, we didn’t seem to have that issue and we thought the texture was fine as the spinach cooked in the oven. Hopefully you can adapt the recipe to suit your tastes next time.

  • This was delicious! My boyfriend and I love spinach and artichoke dip, but he’s lactose intolerant. This was an amazing alternative! We did end up having to cook it for more than 20 minutes (ended up being close to 30 minutes or so), but it turned out great. Thank you for this recipe! 🙂

  • I couldn’t stop eating this! Couldn’t even tell it was missing all the cheeses a “normal” recipe has. Sooooo good.

  • Can you leave the nutritional yeast out and still have a good consistency? I don’t have any now and this sounds so good on chicken. Thank you!

    • Hey there – the nutritional yeast is what gives it lots of cheesy flavor, so we would recommend making it with the nutritional yeast. It would probably be kind of bland without it, but keep us posted if you go for it and let us know! 🙂
