Snack Time!

Who doesn’t love Lipton’s Onion Soup Dip? I certainly always have and rumor has it that’s what Julia Child made a bee-line for at a reception for the Schlesinger Library at Harvard’s Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study which happens to house a culinary collection of 15,000 books. So I’m in good company!

I enjoy two snacks a day and consume my fair share of Greek yogurt but there is only so much Greek yogurt with honey that this girl can tolerate. Sometimes I want a crunchy, salty, savory snack…but it still needs to be healthy. My favorite afternoon snack with a half ounce of baked potato chips is Protein Powered Onion Soup Dip enriched with the protein power of Greek yogurt. This dip hits the snack spot and provides 9 grams of protein!

My proportions yield a milder onion flavor. I use fat free Greek yogurt feel free to substitute 2% Greek yogurt for a creamier dip. As always the seasoning can be adjusted up or down depending on your preferences. Not only is this great as a snack but its a great new way to enjoy an old favorite while guaranteeing there is something potentially GP-friendly at your next BBQ or get together.

1 6 ounce cup fat free Greek yogurt

  1. Great idea! I’ve read that yogurt has alot less lactose and, like hard cheeses, can be easier to digest for those who have trouble. And thank goodness for baked potato chips! They’re always around at my house!

  2. Mmm! I used to make onion dip all the time, and I can’t wait to have it back in my life! Great idea.

  3. Good to know about the lactose. Know what you mean about the baked potato chips!

  4. There’s only so much greek yogurt and honey…nice to have something savory!

  5. I can’t get enough savory things to eat……I am not much of a sweet eater and this gp thing seems to be all about the sweet foods. Thanks for the GREAT snack idea Mary.
