Equipment Needed:

  • Medium skillet
  • Food processor
  • 9-by-6-inch casserole dish


  • 1 tablespoon ghee, avocado oil, or olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped white onion
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 8 cups fresh spinach
  • 2 cups cashews, soaked overnight in 2 cups filtered water
  • 3/4 cup warm filtered water
  • 2/3 cup Paleo mayonnaise
  • 1 cup chopped marinated artichoke hearts
  • 2 teaspoons nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). In a medium skillet, melt the ghee over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and chopped onions, sautéing for 5 to 7 minutes until the onion has softened.
  2. Add the fresh spinach to the skillet and continue to sauté for an additional 3 minutes, until the spinach has wilted. Turn off the heat and set aside.
  3. In a food processor, combine the soaked and drained cashews with 3/4 cup of fresh warm water. Blend until creamy, about 20 seconds, to create a cashew cream.
  4. To the skillet with the sautéed spinach and onions, add the cashew cream, Paleo mayonnaise, chopped marinated artichoke hearts, nutritional yeast, and sea salt. Stir until all ingredients are well combined.
  5. Transfer the mixture into a 9-by-6-inch baking dish, spreading it evenly.
  6. Bake the dip in the preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown and bubbly.
  7. Once baked, remove the dip from the oven and serve hot. Pair it with toasted baguette slices or your favorite tortilla-style chips for dipping.
