Drain spinach and squeeze dry with paper towels. Transfer to medium bowl and stir in vegetable soup mix, mayonnaise, sour cream and 1/4 cup (60 mL) green onions until combined. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 375 °F (190 °C). Line small baking sheet with parchment paper.

Slice 1 inch (2.5 cm) from top of loaf. Using small knife, carve bread from shell of loaf, leaving shell about 1 inch (2.5 cm) thick, and use fingers to extract pieces. Cut cap and pieces into bite-size chunks and arrange on prepared baking sheet. Spray with cooking spray.

Bake for 5 to 8 minutes or until toasted.

Transfer dip to bread bowl, garnish with remaining green onions and serve with toasted bread chunks.
