Where's the spinach, faux spinach dip
I (thought) I bought some frozen spinach to make my favorite spinach dip (the one on the back of the Knorr Vegetable soup mix, often served in a bread bowl).
So, I started the dip and discovered that I had grabbed broccoli, not chopped spinach. Broccoli’s not THAT different than spinach, right?
Well, I'm about to find out (it's in the fridge now, but after mixing, I licked the spoon - and tastes good to me. A little different than the orignal, but still tasty). Though I'll serve it with raw veggies and non-wheat crackers.
Spinach, err I mean Broccoli dip
1/2 can waterchestnuts, drained and chopped
about 6 green onions sliced thin (whites and about 2 inches or more of the green)
1/3 cup sour cream (I use regular or light, I’m not a real fan of the fat-free)
1/3 cup mayonaise (I like Hellman’s Canola mayo - only 50 calories a tablespoon).
Vegetable soup/dip mix packet (Knorr’s, Lipton, or a similar brand).
Optional (if you like garlic), minced fresh or dried garlic to taste
1/3 of a bag of frozen broccoli
Microwave broccoli until tender (or use leftover cooked broccoli). Chop or puree in food processor or blender - or with a knife.
Combine all ingredients and refrigerate for at least an hour to blend flavors and soften garlic (if you used any).
