Ingredients for the Recipe
Vegan Cheese - 300 Grams
Vegan Cream Cheese - 180 Grams
Vegan Mayonnaise - 4 Tablespoons
Nutritional Yeast - 2 Tablespoons
Lime Juice - 2 Tablespoons
Salt - 1 Teaspoon
Garlic Powder - Half Teaspoon
Black Pepper Powder - 1 Teaspoon
Spinach - 160 Grams
Vegan Butter - As much as needed for the bread
Bread Slices - as needed - Minimum 2
Step 1 - Prepare the Vegan Creamy Spinach Dip
Add 300 grams of grated vegan cheese,
180 grams of vegan cream cheese,
4 tablespoons of vegan mayonnaise,
2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast,
2 tablespoons of lime juice,
salt - 1 teaspoon, but I would recommend you to add it towards the end as per your taste,
half teaspoon of garlic powder,
1 teaspoon of black pepper powder,
I have washed the spinach thoroughly and then finely chopped it. I am using around 160 grams of spinach.
Mix everything till it’s well combined.
Note - Make sure you dry the spinach before adding it with the rest of the ingredients, as it may turn the mixture watery, and if it does, just refrigerate the dip for some time and you will be fine.
So the Vegan Creamy Spinach Dip is ready
Step 2 -
Now apply the vegan butter on one side of all the bread slices as evenly as possible, and try to avoid the ones with large gaps.
Next heat a pan at medium heat and apply some butter or oil to the pan. Spread it across the entire pan.
Then place the bread slice side with the butter on the pan. We are going to prepare this at medium heat, so it’s going to be quick. Add around 1 tablespoon of the spinach dip to the bread slice, and spread it evenly. Try not to add too much of it, just a nice thin layer would do. Now the important step, take another bread slice and place it on the dip with the butter side up. Cover the pan and let it cook for 1 minute, you can reduce the heat if you like.
After a minute, remove the cover and flip the bread carefully, it should be nice golden brown in color, and crispy. I like my Vegan grilled cheese to be extra crispy, you can always adjust as per your liking.
Cover it again for a minute and then remove the cover and cook till you get the nice golden brown layer on the other side too. And the Vegan Spinach-Dip Grilled cheese sandwich is ready.
It is so delicious and you can store the spinach dip for upto 2 weeks in your refrigerator easily.
You should also remember not to overcook it, as the spinach dip will melt and might spoil the whole sandwich experience. You don’t want to do that. This is one of my goto comfort foods when I am feeling lazy and don't want to cook everything from scratch, so just mix a couple of ingredients and you get this incredible filling and delicious meal.
