Dairy Free Bacon Spinach Dip

Bacon Spinach Dip & Steamed Artichokes

Here’s another sneak peek recipe from my upcoming digital cookbook, The Grain-Free Snacker.

The cookbook contains a variety of sweet and savoury snacks.  This is one of my favourite savoury appetizers.  I love munching on this on a Friday night while watching a romantic comedy on Netflix.

This dip is amazing! I originally planned on pairing steamed artichokes with garlic aioli but as I was making the aioli, visions of bacon and spinach began dancing in my mind. These two ingredients really give this aioli a “wow” factor.

Bacon Spinach Dip & Steamed Artichokes

Ingredients for Dairy Free Bacon Spinach Dip:

  • Basic Aioli (see below)
  • garlic, finely chopped
  • finely chopped spinach
  • chopped onion
  • cooked bacon, chopped

How to make Dairy Free Bacon Spinach Dip

In a mixing bowl, combine Basic Aioli with the garlic, spinach, onion and bacon. Adjust for taste. Store in the fridge.

Steamed Artichokes Ingredients

1 fresh artichoke

1 teaspoon sea salt

How to make Steamed Artichokes

Trim the tips off the artichoke (optional).

Bring about a ½ inch of water to a boil in a pot deep enough to hold the artichoke standing up. Add the salt to the water.

Place the artichoke in the salted boiling water and cover the pot with a lid. Reduce the heat to maintain a steady simmer and cook for 20 minutes.

The artichoke is done when you can easily pull off a leaf. If this is too difficult, continue cooking, checking for doneness every five minutes. Depending on the size of your artichoke, this may take up to 40 minutes.

Makes about 1 ½ cups of dip

Ingredients for Basic Aioli

1 large egg yolk

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

1 cup light extra virgin olive oil

How to make Basic Aioli

Using a blender or a powerful food processor, whip the egg yolk and mustard.

Turn the blender to the highest speed (I use the whipping cream speed) and SLOWLY add the olive oil one, drop at a time. Make sure it’s mixed in before slowly adding more. Store in the fridge until ready to use.

Makes about 1 cup of dip

  1. Looking forward to the book Carol 🙂 I’ve always had trouble with artichokes – I’m not sure if I just always pick bad ones, but I’ll try again so I can make this recipe!
