HOW TO SERVE THIS KETO FRENCH ONION DIP?

If you are not doing Keto or Whole30, you can serve with chips and crackers. If you are looking to keep it clean, below are some great ideas for dipping.

  • Pork Rinds (Keto)
  • Cucumbers
  • Mini Peppers
  • Sliced radishes
  • Jicama

TIPS & TRICKS

  • Caramelize The Onions: This is key for the dip to turn out. Cooking the onions at least 25 minutes in ghee will get them nice and brown.
  • Hand Held Mixer: Use a hand held mixer instead of a wooden spoon to combine the dip. This will give it more of a whipped texture that is super creamy.
  • Chill Before Serving: Chilling before serving is always recommended for best results. As the dip sits in the fridge, the more flavor it gets!
  • It’s More Than a Dip: If you have a boring piece of protein that needs more flavor, slap this dip on top. It can also serve as a bomb sauce.

ARE NUT CHEESES WHOLE30 COMPLIANT?

This is a question that is asked a lot by the Whole30 community. Below is Whole30 creator, Melissa Urban’s answer:

“Nut cheeses and dips ARE compliant on the program, with a strong caveat that these should be used with caution, especially if you know you rely on cheese as a comfort or stress-relieving food, OR if cheese is a trigger for other food cravings (like wine or crackers). As with Larabars or almond butter, Whole30 HQ and our Coaches all recommend that program participants use with caution, and think critically about whether including these foods in their Whole30 is a healthy choice, given their contexts and goals.”

    Okay! So good! I didn’t have the sour cream so I used dairy free almond milk yogurt instead! Make sure you let it sit in the fridge because that caramelized onion really seeps in and it is GLORIOUS! I added some chives to the mix just to amp it up and it was great as well! Thanks for the recipe!

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      HI Calli,

      Thrilled to hear you loved the Onion Dip. So thrilled you were able to make adjustments to make it perfect. Thanks so much for the kind words of support.

  2. Kelly says:

    Hi, can I use onion powder instead of onions? & if so, how much should I put in?, I just like a mild light flavor of onion.

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      Hi Kelly…..you absolutely can use onion powder instead. I’m not sure how much to use since I’ve never tried the recipe with that ingredient, but you are certainly welcome to try and see. Thanks so much Kelly.

  3. Kelly says:

    Can I substitute onion powder instead of the onions? & if so, how much should I use?.

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      I have not tried that. So I can’t give you a for sure measurement. Feel free to play around with it and report back if you find an amount that works.
