Easy Onion Dip

    15 minutes

    This is a great low fat dip for chips or veggies. Sometimes I throw in some fresh herbs from the garden too.

    Serves: 16 

    • 30g butter
    • 1 small onion, finely chopped
    • 450g low fat natural yoghurt
    • 1/2 teaspoon white wine vinegar
    • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:15min 

    1. Melt butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Sauté onions in butter until tender and lightly browned.
    2. Transfer onions to a serving bowl and stir in yoghurt and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate for at least one hour before serving to blend flavours. This tastes even better if it sits overnight - the onion flavour gets stronger.

    Something else. Great dip! You can trick people into snacking healthy. I did a few things different that makes it even better. Instead of using butter, I used like half the amount of peanut oil (1 tablespoon). I used half shallot/half onion,and I cooked them for a really long time on low heat until caramelized, then deglazed with white vermouth. I also left out the vinegar. This is a versatile dip, but I think the best thing about it is that it can be made extremely low fat, and it still tastes great!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Used different ingredients. What a great dip! nobody can believe it's made with yoghurt, and it tastes a lot better than anything made with onion soup mix. I suggest adding a sprinkle of chopped parsley or minced green onion for colour.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Used different ingredients. With some revisions, I used this recipe at my last grand final party and it turned out great!! People are funny about yoghurt, so instead of 2 cups yoghurt, I added 1 cup yoghurt and 1 cup lowfat sourcream. I also added a 1/2 tsp of garlic powder and 1 tsp onion powder to add more flavour. The flavour will intensify if refrigerated for a day. I loved the sauted onions, nice touch.  -  29 Sep 2008
