I received a recipe for spinach dip from a nutritionist I have been working
with. I modified it some to fit the Ornish program and it is still
delicious. I make it often, and everyone who has tried it is surprised
that it is very low fat. I like it because it's like being able to bring a
"best friend" from my SAD days with me to the Ornish program.
1 12.3 oz pkg Mori-Nu lite firm tofu (1.0 g fat per serv)
1 10 oz pkg frozen chopped spinach, thawed
1/2 bunch green onions, chopped (use both white and green portions
1 8 oz. can sliced water chestnuts, drained and chopped
1 pkg. Knorr Vegetable Soup Mix
1/2 c. nonfat mayonaise (I use Kraft)
Thaw spinach and squeeze out excess water; set aside. Combine tofu and
mayo in blender or food process and blend until smooth. Put in large bowl
and add remaining ingredients. Stir until blended. Refrigerate overnight
for best flavor.
Serve with rye bread, nf crackers, raw vegetables, or melba toast.
I am particular about my spinach dip and I think this one closely
resembles the one with SAD ingredients.
