|Ta-daaaa! The finished product|
What I used:
- 1 large cobb loaf, unsliced (I actually bought a cottage loaf, but apparently they're the same)
- 250g Frozen chopped spinach
- 1 small white onion, diced finely
- 250g tub of sour cream
- 2/3 cup mayonnaise
- 1 30g packet of Continental Spring Vegetable Soup Mix
What I did:
- Thaw spinach and squeeze out excess water. (This took the longest for me - I ended up putting in the microwave on 'defrost').
- Combine onion, spinach, sour cream, mayonnaise and soup mix in a large bowl. Refrigerate (for 4 hours or overnight, according to the recipes above, though I only put it in for about half an hour, if that).
- Cut a 'lid' off the cobb loaf and scoop out bread. I cut the bread into 2cmx2cm cube pieces.
- I then put those bread pieces into a mini oven for 5mins until warmed and slightly crisp. (I think the recipe also recommended putting the whole hollowed loaf into the oven as well, though I found it unnecessary, as it was still fresh.)
- Fill the loaf with spinach mixture and serve with bread.
|Step 3 Part II...|
- Either double the spinach or halve the soup mix, as it was quite salty.
- Buy an extra baguette to go with the dip.
- Not forget to buy the soup mix and have to make another trip (noob! -.-")
Edit: And I'd actually let it sit and refrigerate for the time required, as it combines the flavours and makes the soup mix less salty.
