Cashew Artichoke Dip

Prep

Cook

Total

Yield 12 servings

Ingredients:

Optional: 

  • 2 oz of grass-fed cheese
  • You can also add 1 tablespoon of nutritional yeast for a more cheese flavor

Instructions:

Step #1: Find a mixing bowl (about medium in size) and soak cashews in filtered water in the refrigerator over night or for a minimum of 2 hours.

Step #2: When finished soaking, drain the cashews and put them in a food processor or high speed blender and put enough water to barely cover them in the blender/food processer. Blend until smooth

Step #3: If using frozen spinach, than defrost it and squeeze out the excess water.

Step #4: Drain and cop the artichokes

Step #5: Sauté the onions until translucent, about 10 minutes. Add the minced garlic and cook for another minute.

Step #6: Stir in the chopped artichokes, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, black pepper and cayenne and heat through.

Step #7: Add in the spinach and lemon juice and stir until heated through.

Step #8: Stir in the cashew cream- heat until well mixed and softened.

Step #9: If adding cheese, add now until melted and well incorporated.

OPTIONAL: I like to take the mixture and throw it into my blender and pulse it for a minute or two to the mixture is more creamy and well mixed together.

Dr Jockers Comments:

This is a fantastic homemade dip that is very cleansing for the body.  The ingredients are rich in phytonutrients and support the development of a healthy gut microbiome.

Onions and garlic are rich in sulfur compounds which help to improve liver detoxification.  Artichokes are one of the best prebiotic foods that help to feed the natural microbes to support healthy digestion, immunity and nutrient absorption.  Soaking the cashews helps to remove anti-nutrients and improve the bodies ability to digest and assimilate them.

I love to use cucumbers, celery and red cabbage as my dip sticks for recipes like this.  We also have a few great recipes you can try such as roasted garlic cabbage chips and zucchini squash chips.

You can also find a number of different healthier chip options to use with this such as

Jackson’s Honest Sweet Potato Chips – here

Jackson’s Honest Purple Heirloom Chips – here

Jicama Chips – here

Rosemary and Sea Salt Crackers – here

Or my favorite – Paleo Thin Crackers – here

I know you and your family will enjoy this recipe!  Great one to use for parties, sporting events and other traditional chip and dip type of events.
