Leek Cauliflower Baked Dip perfect for #DataAndAMovie

I came to the realization this morning that over these last few months I have spent a lot of time waiting. Waiting for my daughter to get off work. Waiting for my mom to be discharged from the hospital. Waiting in line. Waiting in traffic. Waiting. But, what I also realized that inspite of all this time I have spent waiting, I haven’t quite felt it.

You see, last year in February, I replaced my dumb phone with a smartphone and ever since, waiting hasn’t been quite so bad! For Realz! In fact, waiting has been quite productive. When I’m waiting for my daughter, I whip out my phone and catch up with my friends on Instagram. When I am waiting for my mom in the hospital, I whip out my phone and catch up on reading blogs. When I am waiting in line, my daughter and I check out funny videos. Someone once said “patience is not the ability to wait but the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting” and I must say, my Samsung Galaxy with the new Walmart Family Mobile PLUS plan sure helps me with my attitude while I am waiting!

By the way, I have been a Walmart Family Mobile customer for almost a year now and I am so excited to share their new Plus Plan with y’all! Their new Plus Plan includes Unlimited Talk, Text, & Data with up to 10GB of 4G LTE data! That’s 10GB! Which is sure to PLUS up my life as now, even waiting in traffic will be fun as I will have enough data to stream my favorite podcasts AND stream my favorite music or videos when I am on my lunch break!

But, the new upgrade in data isn’t the only new feature of the Walmart Family Mobile Plus Plan – now, also included in this plan is a free movie on VUDU (a $7 value)! That means you get Unlimited Talk, Text, & Data with up to 10GB of 4G LTE data PLUS a movie on VUDU for $49.88 every month per line.

Seeing my daughter and I still manage to squeeze in a movie night or a movie morning every week or so, I figured we would make good use of that free movie. And, since movie watching requires food, I plan on making this leek and cauliflower dip to snack on as we relax on the couch and take in the movie on our telly.

Don’t let that creamy texture fool you – this baked dip actually is made with a sauce that includes blended coconut milk and cauliflower. When I went to Walmart to pick up my Samsung Galaxy S5, I happened to find some steamable packages of cauliflower bits and brought them home, microwaved them and used them in this sauce. Now, there is a cup of cheese on top – but other than that, this leek and cauliflower dip is sure to plus up your veggie requirement for the day – in quite a tasty way! Hey – look at that – I rhymed!

  11. Shashi I do hope your mum is on recovery! Yes, it is amazing the amount of time I spent flipping waiting on public transport here in HK. I have to do loads of stuff on my phone. I love this dairy free dip and kind of healthy too. love that!

  13. I love my iPhone but honestly I am so tied to it that I am probably too tied to it! I know someone who used to put his in a box when he got home because his wife would be cross with him. I’m probably in need of a similar intervention. Oh and this dip? So delicious!!

  14. It looks scrumptious! I bet that sauce would be great for some pasta too.

  15. Hope there’s nothing seriously wrong with your mom that she’s in hospital Shashi!
