Homemade French Onion Chip Dip

kept byDAPHNE

* Be sure to watch the ingredients on the sour cream, which can have as many unknown processed components as the soup mix if you're not careful. Daisy brand has cream, salt, enzymes. That's as close as I can find to making my own (there are other brands that achieve it, including Aldi brand).

If the dip seems lacking in something, try adding more salt (up to doubling it) or a bit of sweetener to truly mimic the processed foods.

For different textures and flavors in the base, try using yogurt cheese or homemade mayo or some combination of the three including the sour cream. Barefoot Contessa's original recipe called for ½ cup of each but far less seasoning overall.

Something to try: mix into Greek yogurt if sour cream is still too “processed” for the challenge.


1 c. diced onion
4 Tablespoons butter
1 cup sour cream*
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon dried parsley
¼ teaspoon turmeric
¼ teaspoon celery seed (or celery salt)
optional: dash to ¼ tsp. cayenne
