I’m always on the look out for nondairy dips and spreads. Cream cheese is over used in American cuisine. Try this spread even if you think you don’t like anchovies. In my experience people who say they dislike anchovies usually mean they don’t like them on pizza. The same people will tell me that they love Thai food which has anchovy-based fish sauce in nearly every dish.
During the winter, I will use fresh basil harvested at the end of the season which I have pureed in the food processor with a little olive oil and frozen in ice cube trays. There is also commercially available pesto (in tubes and jars) that will work. Look for a pesto that is high is basil and low in nuts and cheese. "Amore" brand from Italy works well.
