I'm been on a bit of a kick with dips lately, Baba ghanoush is another good one. The great thing about dips is they're cheap, easy to make and usually last a few days as a snack. Not this one, not today. Do you have any favorites?
Caramelized Onion Dip (serves 6)
Adapted from Bon Appetit
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 onions, chopped
1 cup (250 ml) creme fraiche
1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 small garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
Heat oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add onions and saute until slightly softened, about five minutes. Turn down the heat to a medium low and cook until onions are a deep brown and begin to crisp slightly, about 40 minutes. Transfer the onions to a bowl and let them cool completely.
Add creme fraiche, curry powder, cumin, garlic, salt and pepper. Stir to combine and taste. Adjust spices to your liking, add cilantro and mix again.
Serve with veggies or pita bread.
