This Vegan Jalapeño Spinach Dip is the perfect game day or party snack. No one will ever know this creamy deliciousness is even vegan.
So I know it is January and we're all supposed to be about health and wellness. But you know what else is in January...the playoffs. And sometimes you just need a delicious creamy snack to bring to a football party.
This recipe is modeled after my Spinach Artichoke Dip, and I have to say that it is pretty freaking delicious.
If you are not a fan of spice, don't worry, this doesn't pack a ton of heat. Just enough to give you a little zing while eating it.
To tone down the heat I sautéed the jalapeños before adding them to the dip. You could also deseed them if you really want to keep it mild.
To get this dip nice and creamy we are using vegan mayo and vegan cream cheese. Both of which are super accessible at most grocery stores nowadays.
Now to make this dip next level, I served it up in a sourdough bowl. Not necessary, but totally delicious. Can't find a sourdough bowl? Just use a baking dish.
This is one of those dishes that will blow non-vegan's minds...be prepared to make this again and again.
