Make this rich, creamy French onion dip quickly and easily using ingredients you have on hand. You won’t find any off-plan ingredients here, just real food. Trim Healthy Mamas this homemade sour cream dip is an S that will be loved by family and guests alike — perfect for parties, family get-togethers, and snacking.
Long before I found Trim Healthy Mama I had ditched processed foods and embraced a more real, whole foods lifestyle. Foods with MSG are a definite no for Mister so that usually means any time we’re at a party or other get-together where chips and dips are present the dip is off the table.
Unless it’s homemade, and not with a packet of ranch dressing or other dip mix of course.
We’ve recently made a habit of charcuterie boards on the weekend. These wonderful snacky things are piled high with meats, cheeses, pickles, nuts, fresh fruits, veggies, and dip (or whatever healthy, on-plan nibbles you like).
Only this time, I was bored with the usual ranch dip.
I know, that’s akin to blasphemy to say you’re bored with ranch. But sometimes you want something different, right?
It hit me that it’s been ages since I’ve tasted a good French onion dip so I set out to right that. Sister said it was “sooooo good, mom!”
Of course, I couldn’t keep this secret. Sharing the best French onion dip recipe is the kind and considerate thing to do. You’re welcome 😉Need a healthy alternative to soup-mix French Onion Dip? I've got you covered! #thm #keto #healthy #snacks Click To Tweet
What’s In This Easy French Onion Dip Recipe?
Sour cream, of course, as any proper French onion dip has. But I’ve also thrown in a few other things because I’m just crazy in the kitchen like that.
- Greek yogurt — Sister doesn’t like Greek yogurt so I try to put it in all the things I can to help her get healthy probiotics. If you’re keto, you’ll want to use the full-fat version. Good news for THMs here — you can use full-fat Greek yogurt too! If you’re like me though you usually have the fat-free on hand because it’s more versatile.
- Nutritional yeast — we love nooch on (and in) all the things here! This is totally optional so if you don’t have it, don’t like it, or have health issues that mean you shouldn’t eat it feel free to leave it out.
- Coconut aminos — amino acids are good for you, but I personally prefer to avoid the soy-based aminos that are in Bragg’s. Since I didn’t have Worcestershire sauce on hand I used a bit of this. Leave it out if you don’t have it.
- Simple dried herbs and spices. No MSG or corn starch or any other ingredients we don’t want to eat.
How This French Onion Dip Fits In Your THM Meal Plan.
This rich, creamy, onion-y dip is a THM S so that means only low, or even better, no carb dippers. We want to get plenty of non-starchy veggies into our meals and snacks, right? This dip is perfect for dunking broccoli, cauliflower, celery sticks, and cherry tomatoes.
Maybe crackers are your vibe? Sour Cream and Green Onion Crackers are made with almond flour so it’s best to not go overboard with them!
Try baking Joseph’s Lavash Bread, cut into chip-sized pieces, until crispy. Just remember Joseph’s are considered a “frankenfood.” Too much of that will not help your weight loss, I’m afraid.
Finally, you can also make cheese chips very easily (I have an easy how-to in this review of the SmarterBaking Silicone Baking Mat)
Remember — be reasonable! Just because you can doesn’t mean you should. Since French onion dip is sour cream-based (dairy) don’t go nuts with the baked cheese chips. That doesn’t mean you can’t have any, just try to load up on the non-starchies more 😉
