Healthified Spinach Dip in a Bread Bowl


Try this healthified version of classic

Spinach Dip. Nobody will know the difference.


2 boxes (9 oz each) frozen chopped spinach

1 can (8 oz) sliced water chestnuts, drained, chopped

1 cup chopped green onions

1 cup low-fat sour cream

1 cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt

2 tsp chopped fresh tarragon leaves or dill weed

1/2 tsp ground mustard

1/4 tsp pepper

1 clove garlic, finely chopped

1 lb round loaf unsliced 100% whole wheat bread

72 servings


Cook spinach as directed on boxes; cool.

Squeeze water from spinach; discard water. In

large bowl, mix all ingredients except bread.

Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour to blend


Just before serving, cut 1– to 2-inch slice from

top of loaf. Hollow out loaf by cutting along edge with serrated knife,

leaving 1-inch shell, and pulling out large chunks of bread. Cut or tear

top slice and hollowed-out bread into bite-size pieces.

Place hollowed-out loaf on serving plate; fill with spinach dip. Arrange

bread pieces around loaf to use for dipping.
