Spinach dip is typically a fat-filled, creamy, delicious appetizer we all avoid because it isn’t worth the calories or the negative health consequences of the cream cheese, cheese, and sour cream. Even if it is “veganized,” vegan cream cheese, cheese, and sour cream are not healthy alternatives; they are still full of fat and unnecessary calories.
There aren’t many people I know who will admit they don’t like spinach dip. It’s comfort food, and simply delectable. I figured there must be a way to make my dip and eat it too. Just because we follow a healthy vegan diet does not mean we need to skip on the comfort of dip, so why not make it so we can eat it?
I often think about the food I want to make at odd moments. This one came to me sitting standing in line at the post office considering what I was going to make for football Sunday.
We went to the farmer’s market and I spotted the brightest purple cauliflower I have ever seen. Who doesn’t like purple? I also found some flaxseed baked whole-grain flatbread crackers, so my idea can to fruition.
So, if a dip is what you like, and you want to eat it guiltlessly, indulge. Its made of all veggies other than the spices, and it is GREAT if I don’t say so myself.
