Roasted Red Pepper & Spinach Dip

Serve this tasty dip in a bread bowl for a great looking appy (I have a quick trick for creating a perfectly shaped bread bowl...use a metal bowl to bake the bread in!).

Mix up your favorite gluten free bread, and let rise in a warm place. I used a dome shaped baking pan to create my bread bowl.RoastedPepperSpinachDip2

After pulsing spinach a few times in the food processor, place the remaining ingredients into a food processor and pulse until smooth. Stir the spinach and cheese mixture together and fill inside a hollowed out bread.RoastedPepperSpinachDip3

    Do you have a way to make this dip WITHOUT dairy? Dairy cheeses reportedly contain an opiate (caseinophines), which is the reason people love cheese but also the reason I want to eat dairy-free. Would appreciate any suggestions you have. Thank you.

      Full fat canned coconut milk, or silken tofu could be used in place of the cream cheese. Just use a mixer to cream it into a smooth consistency before you add it to the rest of the ingredients. Let me know how it turns out!

    How about a raw cashew cream in place of the cream cheese? Some people want to avoid soy also and coconut milk may impart unwanted flavor.
