While my children were always very good eaters, I came up with this recipe to get them to eat more veggies and "like" it. The dip doesn't last long in our house! —Sarah Vasques, Milford, New Hampshire

"So good! I added 2 cloves of garlic to the veggies and roasted them. I also added some chopped chives at the end."

"I saw this recipe in the Aug/Sept 2016 Simple & Delicious issue, and had not read any of the reviews when I made it. No one needs 2 1/2 cups of dip for a typical home gathering, so I cut it in half. And, my food processor had just quit.. so instead of roasting the veggies, I diced them into small bits, omitted the olive oil, cooked them in the microwave until they were very tender, used a potato masher and then added the cream cheese. The result was a little bland, so I added a teaspoon of prepared horseradish and a dash of hot sauce. That was then a good dip.. and it was all gone at the end of the recent party at my house."

"I've made this a couple times, the first time I used a yellow squash instead of zucchini because that is what I had on hand. I actually prefer it with the squash. I also roasted 3 garlic cloves and added them as well. Very yummy."

"This dip was very tasty but i would not make it again. I found that this dip is good on the first day but when reused the next day it was bland and nobody wanted to eat it. If you only use it once on the day you make it then I would recommend it. Otherwise try a different dip."

"My kitchen smelled great while roasting the was difficult not to eat all the veggies while they cooled! Extremely easy to make and a great-tasting result. A super way to get my two-year-old to eat veggies!!!"
