A Different Spinach Dip

I goofed. I was making spinach dip in the food processor and I wasn’t paying attention and I thought I ruined it. But it turned out great. Better than normal spinach dip I think. And the best part is that it won’t get stuck in your teeth like the old stuff does. (At least it always gets stuck in my teeth.)

A Different Spinach Dip

2 pounds fresh spinach well washed
1 packet onion soup mix
1 8oz block of cream cheese at room temp
8-10 ounces sour cream
1 tablespoon lemon juice
fresh ground black pepper to taste

In a large pot put about 1 cup of water and all of the spinach. Cover with lid. Steam for about 3 minutes or until the spinach is mostly limp but not cooked to mush. Let cool so you can wring it out and get as much water/juice out of it as possible. In the food processor combine lemon juice and soup mix and cooled dry spinach. Pulse a few times. Add cream cheese and sour cream and pulse a couple more times or until the mixture is all green and there are no large lumps. Add pepper to taste and pulse a couple more times to mix everything together good. Put into a container and refrigerate overnight. Serve with veggies, crackers, chips, apple slices, or anything else you can think of. Enjoy!
