Onion Dip (C1)

Recipe Author: Simmie Sinow

Remember the onion dip that is at most parties? Yes, the one that we really should not have on this diet!

Well there's hope! Here's a recipe using homemade fake sour cream instead of the real stuff that is to die for!

First, make your faux sour cream.


Finely chop 1 large onion.

In a skillet/frying pan, heat 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil over a medium high heat and put the onion in the pan.

Cook until the onion is softened -- most likely about 5-7 minutes; put the entire contents of the pan in a dish and combine with the faux sour cream mixture, the juice of 1 lemon and 1 tsp of paprika.

Season with salt as tastes dictate.

Cover and refrigerate.

Simmie's Notes:
The combining of all ingredients can also be done in a food processor if you desire a creamier dip.  Personally, I like little bits of the onion in my dip!


  1. I used greek yogurt in place of sour cream in our spinach dip. My family didn't even notice the difference, and devoured it with no complaints. Thanks for sharing your recipe. I would much rather use your method than the packet mix with all those chemicals in it.
