Naughty & Nice Vegan Spinach Dip

Spinach dip is a favorite naughty pleasure of mine, but let's face it- spinach dip does not a health food make!  Alas, I have reduced the guilt slightly with this naughty and nice vegan version.  :)

The dip is Naughty because of the mock mayo and sour cream involved.  The dip is made Nice by the the whole package of frozen spinach and shhh... I sneak in a handful of fresh spinach too!  It's Mega Spinach dip and it tastes just as divine and decadent without the dairy.

Knowing that extra fiber, protein, vitamin and mineral content is hidden inside the naughtiness will make you feel like a snacking saint.  Feel free to dip and dip again!

Naughty & Nice Vegan Spinach Dip

  • 1 package organic Frozen Spinach
  • 1/2 cup Fresh Spinach, finely chopped
  • 1 cup Veganaise (or other Vegan Mayo)
  • 1 cup Vegan Sour Cream Substitute
  • 1 package Vegan Vegetable Soup Mix (similar to Knorr)
  • 1 small can Water Chestnuts (chopping is optional)
  • 1/2 medium Sweet or Yellow Onion
  • Sea Salt and Pepper, as desired

Begin by thawing frozen spinach and draining well.  In a small pan, saute onion until  translucent, let cool before adding to dip. 

Finely chop or chiffonade the fresh spinach.  Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and chill in fridge while you prep dippers. 

Serve with sliced baguette, crackers, tortilla chips, fruit or veggies.  Enjoy!

    Vote no 5. Sounds delicious and unusual: I would never have thought of using spinach for a dip! It's full of nutrients anyway, as you say, so that helps alleviate the "calorie guilt" a bit!

    I make these vegan spreads often (we Germans like a hearty breakfast with bread and something on it), but not with veganaise/ sour cream sub. Instead I use nut meal (cashews or almonds work best). Also very yummy!
