French Onion Dip when we were kids meant dumping that little paper packet of powdered spices into a tub of sour cream.
(Newflash: It probably wasn’t that healthy a dip.)
Luckily for you, we created a healthier version of your childhood French Onion Dip. (You’re welcome.)
We’ve nixed the artificial flavors and foreign powdery substances in favor of a host of fresh ingredients like freshly chopped onions, caramelized before they’re added to the dip.
This made-from-scratch dip also uses reduced-fat plain Greek yogurt which helps keep the calorie count low.
Garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce, and a bit of organic beef broth enhance the rich savory flavors and nicely complement the caramelized onions.
