I found this recipe about 7 years ago. The first time I made it, I was instantly hooked. I will no longer by prepared spinach dip. For the most part I don't put it into the bread bowl. I usually serve it with some form of chip or cracker.
In a medium bowl, blend dry vegetable soup mix, sour cream and spinach. Remove top and insides of the pumpernickel loaf, creating a bread bowl. Reserve removed bread. Spoon the dry vegetable soup mix, sour cream and spinach mixture into the pumpernickel bread bowl. Serve with removed bread pieces for dipping.
