French Onion Dip

January/February 2009

Your rating: None Average: 3.7 (55 votes)

In our homemade version of French onion dip, we simmer chopped onions in broth and use reduced-fat sour cream and yogurt for the familiar rich and creamy flavor. All told, our version has 12 grams less fat and nearly 50 percent less sodium per serving than the original.



READER'S COMMENT:
"I was not a fan of this recipe. While it is definitely healthier, I felt it lacked in flavor. I had to add quite a bit of salt, and even that didn't help much. Go with a healthy spinach & artichoke dip instead- you can make that...

Just change it to suit

I used Mrs Dash, and some other salt free options. I browned the onions in butter spray till they turned golden; I used Low Fat Plain Greek yogurt; Added some fresh parsley I used apple cider vinegar. I also strained my yogurt overnight in a strainer lined with coffee filter to make it like cream cheese. Just be a little creative and you could surprise your self..

A recipe is just a guid and make it your very own.

I would replace sour cream & beef soup

1. make changes you can live with.. Use different spices, onion powder, parsley flakes, couple of shots of hot sauce. Things to make it taste better for you...Think people you would be surprised what happens when you do this. all recipes are a base and you expand on it.

I would use Greek Low Fat yogurt, I would saute my onions in butter flavor spray, add some dry spice

NO FLAVOR

No flavor, and low and non fat alternatives often contain chemical ingredients which are NOT healthy! This recipe had NO FLAVOR.

Blech

I's definitely recommend SKIPPING the yoghurt and going with REAL sour cream, not the low-fat sour cream (with the polyester ingredients!).

Nice Heathly Rich Dip; key is to let it set.

This dip is a little time consuming to make, so it's not a quick dip. I'll usually make it when I'm in the kitchen leisurely. I'll also use white wine vinegar instead of regular white vinegar. I don't understand why some reviews say it lacks flavor- the onions cooked in beef broth and full of flavor on their own! The key is to let is set overnight or a few hours, so the yogurt/sour cream and blend with the onion. Definitely a compliment dip!

Great flavor, healthy.
