Clean Eating Spinach Dip


I am a fan of spinach dip when I go to parties.  Here is a great and easy alternative to store bought dip!
 
 

Clean Eating Spinach Dip: (Makes approximately 6 cups)

* 1 (6 ounce) container low-fat cottage cheese

* 10 ounce container frozen spinach, thawed

* 8 ounce can water chestnuts, chopped fine

* 2 tbsp onion powder

* 1 tsp dried parsley

* 2 tsp garlic powder

* ½ tsp salt



Directions:

1. Using a blender, blend the cottage cheese until it is smooth and creamy.

2. Put the cottage cheese in a large mixing bowl, and add all other ingredients. 
Stir well! (You can serve either warm or cold).


What to serve with it?

*You can serve the dip with Food Should Taste Good Tortilla Chips



* You could also get 100% Whole Wheat Tortillas, spread 1 Tablespoon of  Olive Oil over it, cut into chip size pieces, and bake on a cookie sheet (at 400 degrees) for approximately 15 minutes (flipping half way through).
 
 


How much easier can it get?!
