The amount of food consumed on Super Bowl Sunday is pretty shocking. Americans will eat 1.3 billion chicken wings, 11.2 million pounds of potato chips and 4 million pizzas! But your Super Bowl spread doesn’t have to be unhealthy! Our faith and fitness expert Kim Dolan Leto is sharing one of her favorite recipes, Skinny French Onion Dip. Serve this up with baby carrots, cucumbers, peppers and celery:
SKINNY FRENCH ONION DIP
A fresh and lighter version of classic French Onion Dip!
PREP TIME: 20 MINS
COOK TIME: 30 MINS
TOTAL TIME: 50 MINS
2 Tbsp. butter or olive oil
3 medium onions (red, yellow or white, or a combination), peeled and diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 cups low-fat or fat-free Greek yogurt (I love Fage)
2 teaspoons Worchestershire sauce, to taste
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
pinch of cayenne
In a large heavy-bottomed stockpot, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the onions and saute until well browned and caramelized (but not burnt), about 30-40 minutes, stirring every few minutes. Add garlic and sauté for 1-2 minutes, until fragrant. Remove from heat and transfer the onions to a medium mixing bowl. Refrigerate for 15-20 minutes or until the onions reach room temperature. (Optional: At this point, set aside 1/4 cup caramelized onions, if you would like to use them as a topping.)
Add the remaining ingredients to the mixing bowl with the caramelized onions, and stir until the mixture is evenly combined. Taste, and season with additional salt and pepper and extra Worcestershire if need be.
Serve immediately, topped with the reserved caramelized onions if desired. Or cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days.
