I use lots of crushed garlic (yummy) & the nutritional yeast adds a very nice flavor to it.<br><br>
This is always a hit wherever I bring this to veg & non-veg alike.

Going to give this a try this week, thanks! I thought I was out of luck for spinach/artichoke dips once I went off dairy!

Hi all,<br><br><br><br>
I'm concerned about the number of feral cats in the area near my home in southern MO (Poplar Bluff to be exact). I'm also concerned about the level of income inequality and poverty in our area.<br><br><br><br>
These problems have increased during the Bush presidency, and we need to start fighting for social justice.<br><br><br><br>
Many people are involuntary vegans because of this injustice, so I'd like to offer a suggestion to help those who suffer.<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.ooze.com/ooze13/cats.html" target="_blank">http://www.ooze.com/ooze13/cats.html</a><br><br><br><br>
My suggestion is to improve on this receipe by using the cat meat to prepare a Thanksgiving dip as follows:<br><br><br><br>
1) Use this recipe using feral cats<br><br>
2) Chop the meat in small chunks<br><br>
3) Smother the chunks with velveta and artichoke<br><br>
4) Use beef jerkey (like Jack Links - which is stiff) to scoop out the cheesy feral cat dip.<br><br>
5) Wash it all down with a cold glass of whole milk from the gas station (btw -it takes a long time to fill my Escalade)<br><br><br><br>
Yum yum.<br><br><br><br>
Thanks,<br><br><br><br>
A concerned citizen<br><br><br><br>
PS: If enough people get active and try this recipe, we'll here less meowing at night - which makes for a better community.

This recipe is good, but needs a rich, fatty component to come close to comparing to the dip people are used to eating. If you can get Tofutti cream cheese and add that to it too, you'll be really pleased with the results.

I made it last night and it was pretty good! I had never blended tofu before so that was kinda fun <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> It's really creamy in texture and takes up flavor very well. I had no idea!<br><br><br><br>
I changed a few things though. I left out the nooch cause we don't like it. I also added a big ol spoonful of veganaise and a pouch of lipton onion soup mix for flavor. It was really good!!! Next time I'd use the vegetable mix (cause that's what we prefer) but I had this on hand and never use it, so now it had purpose lol. It is vegan, BTW.<br><br><br><br>
Now I just have to find a way to make a vegan hawaiian sweet bread to go with it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Here's the (kinda blurry) pic:

My fiance and I just tried this recipe on a whim tonight, we're actually eating it right now. Let me just say OH MY GOODNESS!! This is fabulous. I took the advice to add in some vegan cream cheese and it definitely added the extra "cheesy" punch I know I was looking for. Thanks for sharing this great recipe! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rockon.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rockon:">

I would LOVE to make this, but I can't get vegan cream cheese here (in fact, I can't get very many vegan products at all <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> ). Is there anything I can use instead of vegenaise or vegan cream cheese?

I eat way too much garlic (can you?), so the "for taste" is kinda dangerous there..<br><br><br><br>
But definitely gonna try this out, thanks melissa and others for "bringing it up" as this has been around for a while it seems, but good ones often do <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Thank you so much for this! I've hated not being able to eat this, it seems as though recently it's become more popular with the people around me. Finally I have an alternative! Woo!
