YUM!! I could make a meal of this. Can I just throw in a cup of rice next time and call it dinner? This was my first attempt at a Vegan version of my old favorite. As someone who's tried many regular recipes for spinach and artichoke dip, and someone who has eaten many many many versions in my life (both great and incredibly bad) I was not expecting this to be so good! I made just a couple minor subs. I only had shallots, so I used 2 of those for the onion. And I used 1/2 veg cream cheese, and 1/2 veg sour cream. Needed some salt and pepper, and used matzo meal for the panko (was the only bread crumb - esk thing I had) THANK YOU KOSMIC!!
Even though I had to substitute some (garlic has sprouted so left it out) and had to substitute hummus for the beans since that is what I had on hand, this recipe is so delicious that I could eat it before cooking--and did! Added about a tablespoon of lemon juice to recipe.
Trying this Friday. Think I could mix everything the day before & bake the next day?
