Ingredients and Variations

Spinach – Skip the fresh spinach rinsing and chopping and simply use a package of pre-chopped spinach! Bulk it up with some chopped kale or shredded Brussels sprouts for added texture and nutrition!

Base – Sour cream and mayo make up the creamy components of this richly flavored dip. For a thicker dip, add some softened cream cheese as well.

Seasonings – Knorr Vegetable Soup mix contains the perfect balance of dried garden veggies like carrots, onions, tomatoes, leeks, potatoes, cabbage, cauliflower, and green peas plus savory seasonings which makes it high in fiber and protein. Feel free to add a dash of cayenne, chili powder, or red pepper flakes for a spicy kick.

Variations Water chestnuts provide the necessary crunch in this recipe, but finely chopped celery, bell peppers, or even walnuts will work. Add chopped artichokes and loads of parmesan cheese for another classic dip that everyone will love!
