This super-easy vegan spinach dip recipe was shared with us by So Delicious Dairy Free. I immediately whipped it up in my kitchen, not for a party, but rather for my own savory cravings and lunch!
The recipe below has just a few minor modifications made by me as I prepared it: salt, unsweetened coconut milk beverage, optional mustard, longer baking time, etc.. But, I stayed true to the core of their vegan spinach dip, and wasn’t disappointed. The consistency was perfectly thick, but with just a trace of fat. The flavors were warm, mildly spicy, rich and earthy. I could easily call this comfort food and will definitely be playing around with the recipe to make other tweaks and variations.
Speaking of variations, I know that some of you will want to know how to make this vegan spinach dip soy-free. Though not fully tested, I have the following suggestions to replace the organic tofu (about 2/3 cup) if you are in an experimentation mood: pureed avocado (creamy), cashews or other nuts (about 1/3 to 1/2 cup) blended into a cream with water (bakes up well), or coconut cream (could go nicely with the curry flavor). I plan to trial one or all of these in the future, but don’t hesitate to comment in the notes if you try one of these soy-free option!

- 1 14-ounce can artichoke hearts, drained
- ½ of an 11.5-ounce package organic silken tofu
- ¼ cup So Delicious® Dairy Free Unsweetened Coconut Milk Beverage
- 2 to 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 teaspoons curry powder
- 1 teaspoon spicy mustard, optional
- 1-1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
- ¼ teaspoon salt, or to taste
- Black pepper, to taste
- 1 small bunch spinach (about 2 to 3 oz baby spinach leaves), rinsed, dried and finely chopped
- Preheat your oven to 375ºF.
- Combine the artichoke hearts, tofu, coconut milk beverage, garlic, curry, mustard (if using), lemon juice, salt, and pepper, to taste, in your blender or food processor and puree until smooth.
- Stir in the chopped spinach and pour the mixture into 1 to 4 ramekins. 1 is for serving the dip as a whole, but I like using 2 to 4 ramekins for serving smaller or even single-serve portions.
- Bake for about 20 minutes, or until the top looks firm and the edges just begin to turn golden brown.
- Let cool slightly, but serve hot with tortilla chips, crackers, or bread. See my other serving suggestions in the post above.

Your version sounds delicious, too, Hollis. Thanks for sharing!
Alisa! Callum used to love artichoke dip before we had to remove dairy from his diet. This is exciting. I will try this one out on him – he also loves curry 🙂 And using tofu makes it nut-free so it’s safe for our schools. Thanks Alisa!
I think your soy-free options sound perfect, Alisa, but for those who eat soy, I know the recipe would be fantastic as is since it came out of your kitchen! 🙂
This looks so great! I can’t eat soy though, do you have any suggestions?
Kate, see the post and the comments – I’ve provided soy-free options in the post above the recipe and there is at least one in the comments, too!
Oops I just read your suggestions, I guess it helps to read the whole page 🙂
This recipe looks awesome! Any suggestions for alternatives to the tofu?
I’ve used pureed and steamed cauliflower in a spinach artichoke dip and it is a great thickener. I’ve never tried a curry flavor though….sounds great!
I’ve been meaning to try your cauli-dip!
do you have a recipe? it sounds delicious lol
Wow! this sounds awesome. I have been looking for a ‘spinach dip’ recipe for 3 years. However, in addition to being gluten free and dairy free. I am also preservative free and soy and corn free. Do you have any suggestions for a substitute for the tofu?
Hi Kayt, yes, read the post! Suggestions are in there.
