Caramelized Onion Dip

Our recipe for Caramelized Onion Dip turns this classic snack into something truly memorable! Ever since I was a kid, one of my favorite snacks has always been potato chips with onion dip. Back then, we’d simply mix an envelope of dry onion soup mix into a container of sour cream – and OK – […]

Hummus with Caramelized Cauliflower and Onions

I’ve always been a huge fan of hummus – the delicious, creamy dip made from chickpeas, tahini, garlic, lemon and seasonings. But I have to admit (for the most part) I’ve always been a bit of a purist – simply eating my hummus (perhaps with a drizzle of olive oil over the top) only with […]
