SO HOW'D IT GO?

Oh Corinnas, you rock!   This was the most delicious spinach and artichoke dip I've ever had, vegan or not.  I made it and pored it into my mini crockpot and it was gone by the end of the night.  I got so many compliments by people who didn't even know it was vegan.  It will definitely be my new staple for parties.  Thank you so much!

This was AWESOME!! I made it tonight as an appetizer with dinner, and no one could stay away from it! Luckily dinner was served soon after, so I have left-overs   :)  Will definately be making this again. Only changes I made: I used rice milk instead of soy milk, because my soy milk went bad, and I didn't have any soy parmesan (I can't find it anywhere), so I used 2/3 cup nutritional yeast. I also didn't put any extra cheese on top, I figured it would rock enough with diced tomatoes, and I was right  :)>>> My whole omni family loved it

very very very delicious!! my only suggestion is to chop up everything relatively small so you get a smooth dip. In the picture, I just laid sliced follow your heart cheddar cheese along the top.
I personally think their mozzarella is the best flavor and may try that 'cheese' next time.

but overall, very good especially with crunchy tortilla chips. I liked dipping those more than bread even
