Vegan Spinach Artichoke Dip

I only remember having regular non-vegan spinach artichoke dip way back in the days, but I  didn't remember enjoying my experience. Anyways a couple days ago I had this craving to make spinach artichoke dip and plus it was for a party, and I was browsing the web looking at spinach artichoke dip and comparing it to some vegan versions and I came up with this recipe below. This is hands down super easy, tasty, creamy and satisfying for the palate.

You can make this version baked or no-bake vegan spinach artichoke dip and it will still be as awesome. Though I baked mines.

1 8oz Tub of Vegan Cream Cheese (I used the Trader Joe's Brand)
1 1/2 cup Vegan Mayonnaise 
3 Cloves of Garlic (finely minced)
3 Tablespoon Fresh Lemon Juice
1 12oz bag of Frozen Artichoke Hearts (thawed & drained)
1 16 oz bag of Frozen Chopped or Whole Spinach (thawed & drained)
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried chili flakes
Salt & Pepper to taste

Pre-Heat oven at 350 (if you are baking the spinach artichoke dip)

In a large bowl add in your vegan cream cheese, vegan mayo, garlic and lemon juice. Mix with a spatula or fork until fully incorporated. Then chop & mix in your artichoke hearts and spinach (don't have to chop if bought chopped kind). Add in the dried basil, chili flakes and salt & pepper to taste.

For baked version
Bake in the oven for about 15-20 minutes until bubbly. Serve hot, warm, or cold the day after with your favorite chips.
