You don’t have to sacrifice the tangy flavor of artichokes and the creaminess the chickpeas add for an unhealthy version.
This one is made with clean ingredients you probably already have at home and it can be ready in just a few minutes using a Vitamix or other blender.
Here are the typical ingredients in a traditional artichoke recipe:

It’s basically cheese, cheese, cheese, and mayonnaise.
This healthier version is vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free and you have control over the quality of ingredients that are used.
Expert Tips + Ingredient Substitutions for Healthy Vegan Artichoke Dip
Here are some expert tips to make this recipe perfectly:
Tip #1: I added nutritional yeast to the original recipe to give it a little bit of a “cheesy” flavor. Feel free to add more if you’d like.
Tip: 2: I added the lemon juice to it (which was optional in the original recipe) because I love the tangy flavor it adds and thought it was perfect, but it might be too much combined with the artichokes if you aren’t a big fan of lemon/tangy and may want to leave it out.
Tip #3: I substituted chickpeas for great northern beans/cannellini beans but you use those if you prefer.
