I remember as a kid, there was a time my mom would pack me this especially big picnic style basket to take as a lunch box. Despite the rather cruel jokes I endured as a result, I always loved how much variety was packed into that lunch basket.
One of my favorite lunchtime discoveries was finding onion dip and carrots or other veggies (or chips) inside. I loved my mom’s onion dip, and while it was definitely not clean, it certainly left me with some great lunchtime memories, despite the taunting I endured.
These days, I try very hard to create memories with Mini Chef in the kitchen, and part of that is finding recipes that he really loves. This onion dip really did the trick and will certainly be accompanying him to school this year, minus the lunch basket, of course.
So I put together my onion soup mix recipe and added it to yogurt for a delicious, onion dip!
It worked perfect, and I love the fact that is has turmeric in it. Turmeric is so incredibly healthy!! So I feel really good about him enjoying this for lunch, and I know he’ll eat his veggies with it!
Oh! And as an added bonus, this is really delicious over baked potatoes. It replaces sour cream and butter beautifully!
One last thing, you can find the recipe for the onion soup mix here. And don’t forget, if the flavor is too strong or not strong enough, it’s totally easy to adjust to taste!!
- 1 cup plain yogurt (Greek or regular)
- 2 tbsp. onion soup mix
- Combine the two together and place in the fridge for at least an hour. Overnight is best.
- Stir again to thoroughly combine everything and serve.
