Spinach! Kale! Chard!

A post shared by Shawna L Holman (@shawnalholman) on

This week’s video is a follow up to a twitter conversation about ingredients most often on hand: bread and bananas.  Well, this follow up is about bread, anyway.  Well, this follow up is about a dip you can eat with bread, anyway.  And, I ended up toasting flat bread, which probably isn’t the form of bread we were thinking of at the time.  But I digress, as I often do…

Basically, I was craving fresh spinach dip and made do with the ingredients I had on hand…which did not involve spinach or mayonnaise (two of the main ingredients in fresh spinach dip).  Are you curious about how I made it?  Check out the video:
