Monday was sooooo exciting!

Spinach Dip

My new blog design launched, and even though I had midterms on Monday AND Tuesday there was no stopping me from checking the new site every 5 minutes. I am the worst with computers ever, and had every kind of trouble getting this site ready from signing in (not kidding) to allowing comments to making photos smaller. And that’s why hiring a professional was something that definitely needed to be done.


So with all the crazy business of this week I made something easy and quick. One of my favorite dips that my good friend Lindsay brings to every party (for real…she really does) that I thought you’d appreciate it too! You simply throw sour cream, Miracle Whip, and Knorr soup mix into a medium bowl.

Spinach Dip

Add your chopped, thawed, spinach and water chestnuts.


And mix it like a wild child!! It’s best when you let it hang out in the fridge for a bit (like 30 minutes) so your ingredients can get to know each other. You know? Hold hands. It’s Valentine’s Day after all.

Spinach Dip

When you’re ready, hollow out a circular loaf of pumpernickel bread (I need to learn how to make this stuff on my own) and dump the dip in it. Cut up the “lid” of the loaf and your second loaf of bread and use it for dipping. This stuff is the bomb!!


Enjoy your Valentine’s Day!! Love you all. xoxo

Spinach Dip with Pumpernickel Bread

Serving Size: Makes enough to fill one round pumpernickel loaf


  • 1 pkg Knorr vegetable soup mix
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup mayonaise (I used Miracle Whip for extra flavour)
  • 1 pkg frozen spinach, thawed, drained, and chopped
  • 1 small can (227 mL) water chestnuts, drained and chopped
  • 2 loaves of pumpernickel bread


  1. Thaw spinach fully and drain well (I squeeze the water out with my hands, and then press the spinach between two sheets of paper towel). Chop spinach.
  2. Chop water chestnuts.
  3. Add sour cream, Miracle Whip, Knorr soup mix, chopped water chestnuts and chopped spinach to a medium bowl. Mix well. Let sit in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to let those ingredients get to know each other.
  4. Hollow out one of the pumpernickel loaves with a knife. Add the spinach dip to the hollowed center. Cut the bread you remove into 2 inch chunks for dipping. Cut up the other loaf for dipping.

    I don’t think I’ve ever thought to serve dip in a bread bowl like that – great idea! I love the simplicity of the dip too, it sounds awesome!

  13. I’ve had this kind of dish a few times at gatherings but probably a slightly less healthy version! This way of serving the dip is so creative and eliminates the need for crackers 🙂

    Great recipe, thanks!
