French Onion Dip

French Onion Dip {Gluten-Free} | Wheat-Free Meat-Free

I came across this recipe while looking at the Summer 2010 issue of American Dietetic Association Times. It’s a great alternative to a traditional french onion dip that you might buy in the store or make from a very high sodium soup packet. It’s very quick and easy, but it needs to be made in advance because it tastes best when served chilled and has had time to let all the flavors soak together.

French Onion Dip

  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp paprika (I used spicy, but regular also tastes fine)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups fat-free Greek yogurt

Heat oil in a small sauce pan over medium-low heat. Add onions and brown sugar and cook until onions are very soft and medium brown in color–around 15 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in paprika, salt, and pepper. Add the yogurt and stir until thoroughly mixed. Chill covered for at least 2 hours before serving. Stir well before serving to guests.

This recipe is great with fresh veggies but can also be served with chips, pretzels or other dipping accessories.
