Spinach cob loaf dip ingredients

  • 1 cob loaf
  • 250g frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained really well
  • Continental Spring Vegetable soup mix
  • 1 cup whole egg mayonnaise
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3 green spring onions, finely chopped


  • Mix all the ingredients (excluding the cob loaf) together in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for a few hours so the soup mix can soften.
  • Slice the top of the cob loaf off and keep whole, this will create a temporary lid. Hollow out the loaf to create a bowl, tearing the bread into reasonable size chunks for dipping.
  • Pour the dip mixture into the hollow cob, replace the ‘lid’ and serve with the bread. This dip is also perfect with vegetable dippers – celery, cucumber and carrot sticks are great, hardy options.


  • This dip is always better made a few hours ahead – the night before if you can – it gives the soup mix time to soften. If you don’t have time, don’t stress, all the more texture for you!
  • If you’re sharing with kids who are finnicky about ‘bits’ in their dip, you can chop the spinach finely before adding to the mix, or even use a stick blender to give the whole mix a whiz before serving.
