Athlete’s Dairy-Free Spinach and Artichoke Dip – Whole Food Protein Packed

Just because you are an athlete looking to increase your lean protein intake – does not mean that you cannot enjoy a delicious dip on match day. This option is both packed with micro nutrients, and devoid of artery clogging cholesterol and saturated fat not to mention sodium.

This fat-free, dairy-free spinach and artichoke dip has a delightfully creamy yet light taste and texture.

Instructions:

Combine the plant milk, flour, onion powder, garlic powder, and lemon juice in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until the sauce thickens to a spreadable consistency.

Add the spinach and artichoke hearts. Mix well, then season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook for 2 minutes more, until the spinach has wilted. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water if the sauce gets too thick.

Let the dip cool completely.

Serve the dip warm or cold with a baguette, tortilla chips, or pita chips.

To spice things up, mix in some paprika or chilli flakes to taste.
