Hi! Wing It Vegan is currently on its annual hiatus. It might take me a while to reply to comments, messages, emails, love letters, hate mail, and all that good stuff. I had to turn on that hateful word-verification thingie for comments due to too much spam - it is rather annoying, sorry about that! Thanks for stopping by!

Creamy Artichoke Spinach Dip


This is what I was supposed to blog about yesterday, but procrastination took over me and I made a microwave hot chocolate instead. This stuff is probably Mr. Wing-It's worst nightmare - Creamy Artichoke Spinach Dip! Fortunately for me I love a good artichoke dip, and you know what happens when you're the only one who likes something: more for you!

Creamy Artichoke Spinach Dip

This is Dreena's Creamy Artichoke Spinach Dip of deliciousness. It is indeed creamy, but also chunky enough to taste the little artichoke bits in there. It's a cashew based dip that can easily be made soy-free with a non-soy milk (I used almond.) It's super quick and easy to make. Bada bing, bada boom... and you're done! I halved the recipe and baked it in a medium sized ramekin, and I over baked it a little on purpose. Why? Because this is how I eat my artichoke dip...

Creamy Artichoke Spinach Dip

Like a casserole. With a fork. Straight from the bowl. Proper gluttony.

Picture of the day: What do you think is going on here?

Howling Goose

I think the goose on the right is poorly belting out "I Will Always Love You" and the other one is totally embarrassed and trying to make sure their friends aren't aren't around to hear. "And iiiieiiiiieiiii will always love you..."

  1. I think they are surreptitiously scarfing down the candy I bought for Halloween...which somehow seems to be disappearing. I'm sure they must have snatched it from my pantry. Yeah, that's it. ;)

    1. That could definitely be it, and it would also explain why all MY candy has been disappearing too! Mystery solved! :D

  2. I had this recipe bookmarked but after seeing your post, I'm printing it out. I am always SO JEALOUS of the people at parties eating their stupid dairy-filled artichoke dip.

    Yes, I agree with you about the geese, either that or he's rounding up his friends to help him chase away a photographer, and she thinks he's making a big deal about nothing.

    1. Hmm. You might be right. I should make myself a tree-costume to camouflage myself better just in case they decide to attack! That wouldn't look silly at all! :D

      I hope you love the dip as much as I did! Nobody will judge you if you also decide to eat it with a fork straight out of the bowl.

  4. I'm not a huge artichoke or spinach fan but I reckon this dip could be a good way to enjoy both!

    And I love your interpretation of what's going on with the geese!

    1. You and Mr. Wing-It are on the same boat! He is not a fan of either ingredient either. Today I'm having a Mandee MoFo post! Just as soon as I procrastinate a bit more...
