Spinach Bread Dip

I’m back in America, the country I adore.

Yes, people struggle to understand me more often then I can count on fingers and toes, but the sun shining and seeing old friends and new ones, a surprise friend who wasn’t meant to be in town and a few adventures makes Monday feels like it’s too early to the party.

I’m only here in Los Angeles for a week and already it’s almost time to move on to my next destination, I feel as though there is so much more to do.

If only I could stay a little longer, see some people once more and share some more memories.

Travel is like that though, it passes too quickly and then the yearning to return sets in, that is how in fact, I have come to be here for the 3rd time in a little over 5 years.

I’ll share my time here in LA later this week, I’ve been eating a lot and seeing as much as I can, although Los Angeles is so large that without a car I cannot see as much as I would like.

So today is a recipe that I have made many many times and the recipe was sent via text message to me a few years ago so I don’t know the origins, what I do know is that people absolutely love this bread dip.

It has just the right amount of spinach to all the not so healthy ingredients to make the guilt a little less heavy.

    Welcome to Roamingtaste

    Hey there and welcome! Created in 2012 and as the name suggests this website was created to capture some of the foreign dishes I had discovered on my travels at a time when I needed to stay still for a while.

     

    You will likely find dishes you might not have heard of or eaten on your own adventures and most require ingredients you likely already have and are unfussy because foreign food doesn't need to be complicated.
