Caramelised Onion Dip

Make something you won’t be ashamed to eat, like this caramelised onion dip. Caramelising onions takes a little bit of time and a little bit of patience, but it’s not difficult. You can chop the garlic, mushrooms and fresh herbs while the onions soften up under cover. The finished dip is a little sweet, a little earthy, and great with crinkle-cut chips or fresh veggies.

What you’ll need:

1 tbsp butter

2 large yellow onions, thinly sliced

1 tbsp light brown sugar

1 tsp balsamic vinegar

3 garlic cloves, chopped

3 cups sliced mushrooms

3/4 cup 2% greek yoghurt

1 tbsp chopped fresh sage or rosemary

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper


How to make it:

Melt the butter in a large pan over medium heat. Add the onions and cook them until they soften, 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in the sugar and vinegar.

Reduce the heat to medium low, cover pan, and cook for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally; add garlic and cook 5 minutes more. Transfer to a bowl.

Add the mushrooms to the skillet. Raise the heat to medium and cook them until tender, about 5 minutes.

Let the onions and mushrooms cool, and puree them in a food processor along with the remaining ingredients.
