This is such a fave, a classic, and always a hit. We made it yesterday for my beautiful friends baby shower, and in the rush to get there I forgot to take a photo. You’ll have to just trust me that it is good lookin’ and very moorish.

The idea is you eat the dip out of the cob then tear/eat the cob as well, no wastage. Yum

      I’m sure they will!! I mean who doesn’t??! There is also a hot version of this dip. My mum has made it since I can remember…

      250g cheese grated
      250g sour cream
      250g of spinach (easiest to grab a frozen bag)
      2 onions (sauteed)
      Salt and pepper to taste

      Blend everything to combine. Place all mixture into the cob and pop in the oven to cook for 45 minutes. 180 deg!

    Just a question regarding one of the ingredients. 30g spring veg soup mix – dry packet ? What can you use to substitute for that? We have allergies and I have a feeling there would be numbers (additives) in that soup packet. Thanks.
