The last version does not require any soy parmesan...

Makes about 3 and 1/2 c.
Adapted from my book “Soyfoods Cooking for a Positive Menopause”.

This easy hot dip never fails to please. Serve it with crackers, crostini or French bread

12-14 oz. jar marinated artichoke hearts, drained
1 c. commercial or homemade vegan mayo
1/2 c. Soymage Parmesan substitute
3 T. chopped fresh tarragon, basil, or dill
1 or more cloves garlic, crushed

Combine the ingredients in the food processor until the artichokes are coarsely chopped.

Place in an oven-proof or microwave-proof serving bowl and sprinkle with paprika. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes, or microwave on HI 2 min.

Add one 10 oz. pckg. Frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry. Add up to 1 c. more mayo if it seems too dry.

Stuff spinach-artichoke dip into mushroom caps and bake it!

Wipe the fresh mushrooms with damp paper towels. Remove the stems by twisting them gently; dice stems and set aside. Arrange the mushroom caps on a sheet of aluminum foil on a baking sheet, and set aside.

Preheat the oven to 350ºF.

Fill the mushroom caps with some of the filling, mounding it up slightly. Drizzle a little olive oil over the mushrooms.

Place a second sheet of aluminum foil over the mushrooms and seal the edges by folding in on the foil. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove the top sheet of foil and bake an additional 5 minutes. Serve immediately.

This is kind of like a casserole version of that hot, creamy artichoke dip!

10 oz. Package frozen chopped spinach, thawed
14 oz. Jar marinated artichoke hearts
2 T. raw cashew pieces
8 oz. Medium-firm regular tofu OR extra-firm SILKEN tofu
1 and 1/2 T. lemon juice
1 T. light miso
1 T. flour
1/2 T. tahini
1/2 tsp. salt
pinch sugar
1/4 c. plain soy protein powder
2 chopped green onions
2 T. chopped fresh basil
freshly-ground black pepper to taste
1/4 c. Soymage 100 percent vegan soy parmesan plus a little bit more to sprinkle on top

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Oil a 9” pie pan

Squeeze the spinach as dry as possible. Drain the artichoke hearts in a colander, then rinse the oil off with warm water. Drain again. Slice the artichokes.

In a DRY food processor, grind the cashews as finely as possible, almost to a past. Loosen them from the sides of the processor bowl with a spatula and add the tofu, lemon juice, miso, flour, tahini, salt and sugar. Process until quite smooth.

Add the soy protein powder and process again until smooth. You may have to stop the machine and scrape down the sides to get all the powder mixed in. Add the onion, basil and pepper and process briefly. Add the soy parmesan and process briefly again.

Add the squeezed spinach and drained, sliced artichokes. Pulse the processor briefly just to chop the artichokes a bit and mix.

Spread the mixture into the prepared pan, sprinkle with a little more soy parmesan, and bake for 18-20 minutes. Cut into3-4 wedges and serve hot, cold or at room temperature.
