1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 cup cottage cheese

1/2 cup chopped pecans

Black pepper
1 round loaf bakery wheat bread, the top sliced off and diced into 1-inch cubes, and the inside torn out and cut or pulled into pieces.

Heat oil in a wide frying pan over medium heat and saute onion with salt, til browned. Add garlic right at the end, and saute, stirring, another minute before turning off the heat.

Meanwhile in a food processor pulse together yogurt, cottage cheese, and mayonnaise until smooth. Add the slightly cooled onion mixture and spinach, and whir until nearly smooth. Scrape dip into a bowl, stir in pecans and cheese, then season to taste with pepper, a squeeze or two of lemon juice, and more salt.
