This healthy French onion dip recipe tastes much better than the store-bought version. The flavor is so delicious in this easy appetizer!
There’s nothing like a healthy appetizer that tastes decadent. The flavor of this rich French onion dip completely conceals the fact that it’s made with yogurt instead of sour cream and mayonnaise.
Between the holidays and football Sundays, I feel like my family is nibbling on snacks and treats all the time. It’s easy to let things get out of hand, which is why it’s important to have some healthier snacks ready to go. This dip is a great accompaniment to vegetable strips, crackers, pretzels, or any other savory side you can think of.
This is a delicious way to enjoy yogurt without all the extra sugar that a sweetened cup of yogurt contains. I recommend buying (or making) plain, whole milk yogurt for this satisfying dip.
French Onion Dip Recipe
$1.21 per serving
- 2 tbs olive oil
- 1 medium leek white/light green part only, thinly sliced
- 1 cup plain whole milk yogurt
- 1/4 tsp soy sauce
- 1/2 tsp lemon juice
- 1/8 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat, and add the sliced leeks. Saute over medium-low heat for two minutes, stirring constantly. Then add 1/4 cup water, cover, and cook over low heat until softened, about 5 more minutes.
Strain the leeks if there’s liquid left in the pan and discard the cooking liquid. Let the leeks cool to room temperature, then dice the cooked leeks. You should have about 1/2 cup.
In a medium bowl, stir together the yogurt, leeks, soy sauce, lemon juice, garlic powder, and salt. Serve with vegetable strips or crackers.
