Holiday Spinach Dip

What you need: 

16 ounces vegan sour cream
1 cup vegan mayonnaise (I use Vegenaise)
1 large or 2 small envelopes (about 2 ounces) vegan vegetable dry soup mix
1 small can (4 ounces) water chestnuts, finely chopped
2-3 green onions, chopped
1 1/2 cups chopped spinach (if frozen, make sure its well pressed)
1 clove, finely chopped garlic, optional
1 round loaf pumpernickel bread
small wedges pumpernickel (reserved from loaf), for dipping
small wedges sourdough bread, for dipping

What you do: 

1. Whisk the sour cream and vegan mayo.
2. Add soup mix and veggies, mixing wellL (I use a clear bowl to make sure nothing is sticking to the sides unmixed)
3. Depending on the size of the loaf of vegan bread, cut out an area to the top leaving a bowl shape. Hollow out the inside carefully (you'll need the insides for wedges), leaving 1/4 to 1/2" bread inside.
4. Fill the bread bowl with the dip, replace the top lid portion of the bread, store in a large container with a lid or wrap in clear wrap, and refrigerate for 2 hours before serving on your best platter, surrounded by alternating wedges of pumpernickel and sourdough bread for dipping.

Preparation Time: 
10 minutes to mix, best if refrigerated at least 2 hours

I found the soup mix and made this for a party, it was excellent!


Is there anything I can use to substitute for the dry vegetable soup mix? I can't find this for some reason.


:)>>>This dip is freakin' AMAZING! I am an always happy to be a vegan..vegan, but my boyfriend going through a transitional phase is finding he is missing out on his favorite "junk foods." He was tickled pink when he gave this a shot! It's universally delicious, easy to make and makes a TON! Great, GREAT recipe


Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you!

I haven't had spinach dip since I went vegan 2 years ago.  All I can say is this tastes fantastic.  I used 2 packages of vegetable soup mix, added more green onions and used the 12 oz container of tofutti sour cream instead of 16oz.  This is exactly like the spinach dip I ate pre-vegan.  My omni-family (including my extremely leary step-dad) liked it too.  All I was thinking when I had the first taste was...would I be a huge piggy if I didn't share and ate it all!!!  :D
