Spinach and Artichoke Dip (Paleo)

In a sad attempt to honor Earth Day (this Wednesday, people!), I am sharing this spinach and artichoke dip. The artichokes are mashed up to form a hummus-like base for this recipe.

Now, if only artichokes were blue! Then we’d have the “blue oceans” and the “green lands.”

See the intentions of my creation now?

No? Ehhh, I’m having trouble too… 😦

But seriously, I cannot think of any naturally blue foods that would give something a blue color (blueberries don’t count either- they bleed violet).

Awww well, a dip is a good dip as long as it tastes good 😉 

Spinach and Artichoke Dip (Paleo)

Spinach and Artichoke Dip (Paleo)


2 (14oz each) cans of artichokes, rinsed and squeezed of all excess water

1/3 cup olive oil

1 tbsp avocado oil

6 garlic cloves

1/2 an onion, chopped into small bits

4 cups fresh spinach

1 tsp salt

pepper, to taste


Combine artichokes and olive oil in a food processor and blend until smooth-ish.

In a pan, add avocado oil and garlic. Sauté for 1 minute. Add in onion and sauté for another 3 minutes. Add in spinach, cover with a lid, and place on low heat. Cook until spinach has wilted. Transfer pan contents into food processor and pulse (just until spinach is broken up). Add salt and pepper and serve!

  2. I’ve had a life long obsession with spinach and artichoke dip- this is the first ‘healthy’ variation I’ve seen! I’d love for you to share a post at my link up tomorrow, if you’re interested! There’s an explanation on my main menu under ‘Tell ’em Tuesdays.’

  3. Great dip – I know it’s not paleo but I have a similar one and find substituting the artichoke for feta can work well also!


    • Thanks!! And I’m not strictly paleo so I have no problem digging into some feta cheese 🙂 In fact I’m very tempted to try subbing in feta right now…


  4. yum yum, looks great! 🙂 im a fitness blogger on here too! x


  5. This looks amazing – currently obsessed with artichokes! What do you normally serve it alongside with?



  6. I love spinach and artichoke dip, and I’m so happy to see a paleo version I can try!
