Do you experience temporary addictions to certain foods? The spinach sauerkraut dip pictured above has been my craving for the past week.

It all started when Christy brought over a ridiculously good artichoke dip. I couldn’t get enough of it. When all heads were turned, I dug into it with gusto.

Later in the week I began dreaming about said dip.

Obsessively.

Christy said she had used sauerkraut and a little mayo. Driven, to the kitchen I went to create something like it and this is what I came up with. It was so fast. It was so easy. This Spinach Sauerkraut Dip really hit the spot. And it was guilt-free (adjust the mayo to your level of “guilt”). I ate the entire bowl.

3 Ingredient Spinach and Sauerkraut Dip

3 Ingredient Spinach and Sauerkraut Dip

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed of excess water
  • 1-1/2 cup sauerkraut (get a live one with live cultures)
  • 2-4 tablespoons vegan mayonnaise (or mayo of choice)

Instructions

  1. Place all ingredients into the bowl of a food processor fitted with the "S" blade. Pulse to the texture of pesto. Want it thinner? Add a little of the sauerkraut brine. Alternatively, and what I do, place all ingredients into a narrow and deep jar. Grab an immersion blender and blend to the texture of pesto.

I make my own sauerkraut, and now must try this dip. What did you dip in it?

Hi Stephanie, when I am feeling like a good girl—celery. When I am not—corn chips, lots of corn chips 🙂 I also had some over steamed rice. Yum! xo

This is a great and simple recipe I would definitely try! Planning to serve this to my family one of these days. I want them to start enjoying vegetables like I do. One question though, could I also use cream cheese instead of Mayo? Thanks!

Kim, I bet cream cheese would be yummy if for those who aren’t dairy free. It’d make it nice and thick. Great idea, thanks for sharing. xoLexie

I make my own saurkraut too! except with red cabbage… Maybe I could try a saurkraut, mayo and BEET dip? I think green and purple would be a little funny…

Frederique, oh I bet that would be delicious. I think I will try that. I am trying to keep my hormones in balance and my health coach suggested to up my beet intake. Thanks for the super idea. Agreed, green + purple = brown, ha! xoLexie

Hi Lexie, Would this work with fresh spinach?
