Well hello there! Betchya didn’t expect to say a recipe for chips and dip on a healthy food blog, did ya?

Well I’ve got good news for you: not only is there room for all food in a balanced diet, but there are healthy chips and dip options out there, like this insanely delicious French Onion Dip that’s naturally gluten-free, lactose-free and full of Vitamin A + K.

I should clarify–when I say there’s room for all food in a balanced diet, I mean that within the real food, organic/non-GMO, humanely and sustainably raised/grown/caught definition of food.

Healthy Chips Q&A

I know there are a lot of questions when it comes to eating chips–typically a greasy, fried snack that’s prone to addiction and often filled with harmful chemicals. But fear not! There are healthier chip options out there. To wit, here’s a quick Q&A all about healthy chips:

How to Make French Onion Dip from Scratch

Alright, now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s talk about this French Onion Dip. High in Vitamin A, K, C and with a dose of calcium, this healthy French Onion Dip is so full of flavor you’ll hardly believe it’s actually good for you.

Part of what makes it so healthy is the addition of organic miso paste, an amazing source of probiotics that adds a delicious umami flavor to this dip that’ll knock your socks off. Especially when paired with sweet, caramelized onions cooked lovingly in ghee.

You could use organic, grass-fed butter too, but to keep this entire recipe lactose-free, I opt for ghee.

And I also use lactose-free sour cream in place of regular sour cream.

Why Use Lactose-Free Sour Cream? Because it’s easier on digestion. And since this is a snack–the perfect party appetizer, I might add–I thought it apropos to go easy on your stomachs before the actual meal.

I use Green Valley Organics Lactose-Free Sour Cream, which is slowly cultured, made with only three ingredients (cream, cultures, and lactase enzyme) AND Certified Organic, Certified Humane and kosher.

What’s the difference between lactose-free and dairy-free? Though neither contain lactose, lactose-free products are made from real dairy, while dairy-free products contain no dairy at all. GVO simply adds lactase to their dairy, which breaks down the lactose for you (people who are lactose intolerant do not produce enough lactase on their own to break down dairy).

If you are lactose-intolerant or if dairy sometimes messes with your stomach, try a Lactose-Free Sour Cream like this one–you’ll likely find that you can digest it with no issues. And it’s much better than those nasty vegan sour creams that are often made with hydrogenated oils, GMO soy, carrageenan and other gut-unfriendly gums.

And don’t even get me started on store-bought French Onion Dip. Most are HIGHLY processed, made with inflammatory oils, low-quality dairy, MSG, Guar Gum, Carrageenan, Yellow 5 & 6, DATEM (a chemical that may cause heart muscle fibrosis and adrenal overgrowth) and potassium sorbate, which has mutagenic effect on DNA. Hard pass!!

Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons organic grass-fed ghee
  • 1 large sweet onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup organic parsley (fresh)
  • 2 tablespoons vegan, organic Worcestershire
  • 1 tablespoon organic white miso paste
  • 6 ounces lactose-free sour cream (I recommend Green Valley Organics)
  • salt and pepper , to taste
Instructions
  1. In a large skillet over medium-low heat, melt the ghee. Add the sliced onions and caramelize, stirring frequently, for 25 minutes. You want the onions to be browned, sweet and super soft.
  2. To a food processor, add the onions and all remaining ingredients. Pulse until smooth and combined.
  3. Transfer dip to an airtight container and refrigerate for 2 hours. Serve with coconut oil chips (I recommend Jackson's Honest Sweet Potato Chips) and enjoy!
