I mentioned in my previous post that whenever there is a party or a food day at work, people ask me to bring spinach dip. I posted the link to my blog on the other post, but you may not have seen it, so I thought I’d share here. The recipe isn’t anything fancy. (It’s just the recipe that’s on the back of that Knorr’s Vegetable Soup packets.) But I modify the recipe to make it a little bit healthier.
What you’ll need:
1 10 oz package frozen chopped spinach, thawed. (NOTE: Please squeeze the spinach dry. I made the mistake of not doing this the first time I made it and ended up with spinach soup, not dip. You’re welcome.)
1 cup sour cream
1 cup mayo
1 package of Knorr’s Vegetable soup mix
1 (8oz) can of water chestnuts (optional)
3 green onions, finely chopped (optional)
All you do is mix everything in a bowl and let it chill for at least two hours! You can serve this with crackers or bread.
How I change it:
I use light mayo and non-fat sour cream. Also, I don’t use the full cup of either. I like the dip to be a bit thicker than what the recipe calls for. What I would suggest is start with using just 1/2 cup of each and if you like, add more. But keep in mind that using less mayo and sour cream does cut calories! I also don’t add the onions or water chestnuts, but that’s just a personal preference for me!
I have made this recipe countless times and not one person has noticed that I use light mayo and nonfat sour cream. Like I said before, they request it!
All that said, I hope you enjoy!! And remember, there’s always a way to make your favorite recipes more healthy!
