Onion Soup Dip Homemade Recipe


I used to always make dip by mixing onion soup mix with sour cream. It's so much cheaper and easier if you make it from scratch! It's healthier for you, too. For some reason they feel like they have to add sugar to onion soup mix dip! I still can't figure out these things. The last thing you need in a veggie dip mix is *sugar*.

I'm doing this recipe with the smaller, 8oz size of sour cream container - this seems perfect for a casual afternoon with friends. If you want to go for the larger 16oz sour cream container, then by all means double the recipe, it's just as easy.

8oz sour cream
2 tsp onion flakes
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp sea salt / kosher salt
1/8 tsp white pepper
1/8 tsp onion powder
1/8 tsp dill

Spoon out the sour cream into a serving bowl. Now mix in the onion flakes, garlic powder, sea salt, white pepper, onion powder and dill. Mix all together well. Serve with healthy veggies or with veggie chips! Enjoy!

The sour cream is about 1g carbs per 2 Tbsp. That's really the only carb count here. If you ate this entire container of dip all by yourself, that's 8g of carbs. You might say that's a lot - or you might say that, if you get 10g total for eating this all up with a bunch of celery, that you're doing very well for yourself.

The reason we have both onion flakes and onion powder is that the flakes provide large "chunky" bits of flavor, but the powder gives the entire blend a general oniony taste to it. I definitely recommend keeping both of these in your spice cabinet.

As far as salt goes, all salt is not the same! Yes, salt is NaCl. It's a chemical. However, salt crystals form in combination with other minerals, and it affects how your body absorbs them and how your tongue tastes them. Sea salts are generally large crystals. They will add a salty flavor without as much "impact" on your body chemistry. I definitely recommend experimenting with different types of salt to see how they affect the flavors of your recipes.

I find this perfect with veggie chips and sweet potato chips. Try to avoid "regular" potato chips at all costs!
