The kids love these type of dinners! Mick, my husband and I have a glass of wine and we really enjoy these family moments. Would you enjoy this too?

How to make my vegan spinach cob loaf:

To make this recipe you will need an oven and a blender or food processor and a pan.

  1. First soak your raw cashews in water 3-6 hours to make them creamier. (Some blenders are powerful enough to skip this step.)
  2. Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius/ 355 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. In a pan cook the diced onion and finely sliced garlic in olive oil.
  4. Add in the thawed frozen spinach or use baby spinach. Combine together and season with salt and pepper. Take off the heat after a few minutes.
  5. In a blender make the cashew cream combining the cashews, water, nutritional yeas, garlic and onion powder, lemon juice and more salt and pepper. Blend until smooth and creamy.
  6. Combine the cashew cream with the spinach (don’t blend it together).
  7. Slice the top of your cob loaf with a knife and cut the inside leaving a crust thickness of 3-4 cm all around. Keep the top and cut it into smaller bites.
  8. Pour the spianch cashew cream inside the cob loaf and place it on a baking tray with the extra bread around.
  9. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden. Serve with cut vegetables and extra crackers if desired.

Traditionally cob loaves are made with cream cheese or bacon but my recipe is vegan and actually a lot more nutritious as made with spinach and cashews! If you cannot have cashews I recommend replacing the nuts with some silken tofu instead.

For the bread I could only find white cob loaves but if you can; you can use a wholemeal bread. The best part is being able to use the top as crusty bread to dip in the spinach cob loaf dip! And if you are gluten-free you can simply serve the vegan creamed spinach as a dip with veggie sticks and crackers.

This recipe could also be used as a vegan spinach dip without the cob loaf served with healthy veggie sticks and crackers to dip!
