1 10oz package frozen spinach, chopped
1 cup mayonnaise (lowfat OK)
1 cup sour cream (lowfat OK)
1 tin water chestnuts, drained and chopped
garlic powder to taste
1 package powdered vegetable soup mix (I like Knorr's Leek Soup)
1 loaf round pumpernickle bread
Cook spinach on high for 3-4 minutes. Cool and press out all moisture.
Mix all ingredients (except bread) and let stand in refrigerator for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
Scoop out the center of the bread to form a bowl. Serve with sauce in the bread bowl, vegetables (mushrooms, carrots, celery...) and the scooped part of the bread (cut into 1 inch cubes).
