French Onion Dip
We love, Love, LOVE our chip and dip. And since it's just not that healthy for you......say what?......that's right, I hate to break it to you chip and dip lovers, but it's not. Being high in both fat and salt, it is always nice to come across a healthier version. I found this version of French Onion Dip from Eating Well Magazine and just had to try it. It lowers the fat by 12 grams and the salt by 50% per serving. Have this with the microwave or baked chips, okay even veggies and your sitting pretty guilt free. I made it for Stevie and I to try last night for our usual chip, dip and TCM movie night and it passed with flying colours! This will now be my go to dip recipe. It tastes awesome!
Here's what you will need:
1 tbsp. olive oil
4 cups chopped onions
1/2 tsp. salt
14 oz. low sodium beef broth
2 tsp. onion powder
2 tbsp. white vinegar
1 cup fat-free sour cream
1/3 cup non-fat greek style plain yogurt
Cook onions with salt and olive oil until they start to brown, 6-10 minutes.
Add beef broth, scraping up brown bits and let simmer until the liquid is almost evaporated, 10-20 minutes.
Reduce heat to medium-low and cook until onions are a deep golden brown 5-8 minutes. Stir in onion powder and vinegar and cook until evaporated 1-2 minutes.
Remove from heat and let cool 20 minutes.
Combine sour cream and yogurt. Stir in onion mixture.
Chill 30 minutes.
Note: Can cover and refrigerate the onion mixture (step 1) for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 2 months.
Yes, in the above picture that is a regular chip. I confess, we had rregular boughten chips with our low fat dip!! Baby steps people. Baby steps.
