Caramelized Onion Dip
A quick and healthy Caramelized Onion Dip that's made with Greek yogurt and of course, caramelized onions. Serve it with carrots, cauliflower or your favorite crackers for an easy appetizer.
- 2 large sweet or yellow onions sliced
- 2 tbsp butter or more
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 1/2 cups plain Greek yogurt
- 3 cups spinach
- 2 tbsp chives chopped
- salt and pepper to taste
Thinly slice the onions, then place them into a large, deep skillet, along with the butter and olive oil.
Turn heat to medium-low. Once the butter melts, reduce the heat to low and cook the onions on low for 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally until they're soft and golden brown.
While onions are caramelizing, chop the chives and set aside and place yogurt in a bowl.
Once the onions are *almost* perfect, add the spinach to the skillet and sauté for 1-2 minutes until it's wilted. Transfer the mixture to the bowl with the yogurt and stir to combine.
Add chopped chives, salt and pepper and enjoy!
*Calories are per serving and are an estimation
*If the onions seem to be browning too quickly, add 1-2 tbsp additional butter and reduce heat even lower, stirring a little more frequently.
*To make this vegan: use dairy-free butter and dairy-free yogurt instead of Greek yogurt
