Creamy artichoke dip



Upping your plant diversity and fibre shouldn’t be time-consuming or tasteless, so I like to make a few homemade dips on a Sunday for healthy snacks during the week – a great way to pack in extra plant-based goodness too ?

5 Plant Points


  • 1 cup pre-cooked artichoke hearts (I use the chargrilled artichokes in a jar, marinated in oil)
  • 1 cup fresh spinach
  • 1 cup live yoghurt
  • 1 cup broad beans
  • 1 garlic clove - 2 if you like it garlicky!
  • Juice of half a lemon, approx 4 tbsp
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, or oil from the artichokes
  • Pinch of salt & pepper to taste
  • Optional: 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • Optional: 1/2 tbsp dried Parsley


  1. Simply add all of the ingredients to a blender and blitz until smooth - then enjoy! Easy.
