Creamy Hot Artichoke Dip – Dairy Free & Paleo

Paleo Artichoke Dip

I have been wanting to create a hot artichoke dip I could have.  All of my old favorites were of course laden with dairy of all varieties (one with goat cheese was my favorite!).  Here is a hot, creamy dip free of dairy and destined to please a crowd.

I have made this for multiple gatherings and everyone always raves.  I think part of the success of this dip is my homemade mayo.  It is far superior to any store bought and takes under 5 minutes to prepare…in the same food processor bowl you’ll use for making the dip anyways (I am working on an egg free version too!)!

I adapted this recipe from Karina over at Gluten Free Goddess, my original go-to!

INGREDIENT NOTE:  If you need an egg free mayo, here a couple of recipes: Vegan Mayonnaise ( I would use light olive oil and unsweetened non-dairy milk), or this nut based one @ Elana’s Pantry.

Creamy Hot Artichoke Dip - Dairy Free & Paleo
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 8
  • 2 14 ounce cans artichokes heart (or hearts of palm) NOT the marinated ones! Frozen artichoke hearts that have been thawed would work too!
  • 1 generous clove mince garlic
  • 1-2 tablespoons very finely minced onion
  • ¾ cup preferred mayonnaise (Using myquick homemade mayo is what sets this dip over the top!! A low quality mayo will not yield the same amazing results.)
  • ¼ cup allowed plain yogurt (I use So Delicious Plain Greek Yogurt)
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ¼ cup sliced almonds
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In the bowl of food processor, pulse the drained artichokes until diced.
  3. Add in the remaining ingredients and pulse until combined.
  4. Spoon into an 8 x 8 pan (the size is not overly will cook until bubbly and warm regardless)
  5. Sprinkle top with the sliced almonds.
  6. Bake for about 30-40 minutes until hot and bubbly.

When her third child was born with severe food allergies, Tessa took to the kitchen to figure out how to feed her family well. Always up for a culinary challenge, their journey has taken many twists and turns! Lots of Paleo, and lots of top 8 free. Good food for families, that's what she's about!

    Thank you for sharing this to our 12 Days of Christmas {Goodies} link-up! I haven’t had many artichoke dips, but what I have had, I’ve loved. This looks like not exception. :) I will have to try it some time.

  5. says:

    This looks yummy! And a sure step up to something healthy from an old favorite that is well, not so healthy. I will have to give this a try for sure.
    Thanks for sharing on Natural Living Monday!

  6. Rebecca says:

    You know how some of us can get used to using certain vegetables, without ever considering trying to cook with a new one? Well that’s me when it comes to artichokes, so I’m going to break from a habit of a lifetime and experiment with this vegetable-once and for all, as this recipe looks too yummy to ignore! Rebecca x

  7. Laura @ Gluten Free Pantry says:

    Having a House Warming Party tomorrow and am stoked to make this dip! Thank you dear Tessa!

  8. Mindy W. says:

    Where do you find non-dairy plain yogurt? I can only find flavored. Looks like a yummy recipe though!

    • Hi Mindy…not sure where you live? But we find it at 3 of the 4 stores we shop at, and I also order it through my bulk buying club. I have seen soy, alomnd, goat, and coconut milk plain choices, and sometimes the greek style coconut! Whole Foods, New Seasons, and Fred Meyer all have it for us.

  9. Amanda @Natural Living Mamma says:
