French Onion Dip

chips and dip

Prep Time: 50 minutes
Servings: 5

  • Caramelized onions
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil 30 mL
  • 2 medium white or yellow onions sliced, about 2 cups
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 cups plain Greek yogurt* 450 g
  • 1 tsp vegan Worcestershire sauce 5 mL
  • ¼ tsp white pepper
  • Pinch of salt
  1. Heat oil over medium/low heat, preferably in a heavy-bottomed pan (like cast iron). Add onion, stirring to evenly coat with oil. Cook for 10 minutes, then sprinkle with salt. Continue cooking for 30 to 45 minutes, stirring every couple minutes, until onions are golden brown and caramelized.
  2. Add garlic at the very end, cooking for just 2 or 3 minutes with the onions, then remove from heat. Roughly chop and allow to cool slightly.
  3. Combine cooled onion mixture with yogurt, Worcestershire, pepper and salt in a medium bowl. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed.

*Aim for a thick Greek yogurt. If yours isn't thick, it's best to strain it with a cheesecloth first.
