#DeliciousBowl Healthy Caramelized Onion Dip

Caramelized onion dip made with Chobani
Looking for something to snack on during the Super Bowl but don't want to go overboard on the fried, unhealthy eats? This caramelized onion dip made with Greek yogurt is a healthy alternative to the prepackaged soup mixes that you just dump into a container of sour cream and gorge on. The onions caramelize for hours, giving it a rich, deep flavor that you just can't get from a packet of spices. This dip gave me the perfect excuse to repurpose the container of Chobani Non-Fat Plain Greek Yogurt that I had in my fridge. Greek yogurt is a really great substitute for oil, mayo, sour cream, you name it. Plus it's packed with healthy probiotics - HELLO you're dipping your way to health with this recipe!

Chobani is making a bold statement on Super Bowl Sunday by saying "we're eating, not tweeting." They're encouraging people to spend the day with their friends and family, instead of on their phones. Being a social media manager, this is always difficult for me but if I've got my hands full of tasty caramelized onion dip, I know it'll be a little easier! Chobani challenged a bunch of bloggers (like me) to come up with a healthy "bowl" recipe using Chobani as the key ingredient. You can see what they came up with on their tumblr: http://madewithchobani.tumblr.com (ps. did you know I'm on tumblr, too? aimstar.tumblr.com)

Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onions and reduce the heat to the lowest setting. Season with salt and pepper. Continue to cook the onions low and slow for the next hour and a half, stirring every 10 minutes. When the onions begin to stick to the bottom of the pot, deglaze with 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar. Continue cooking for another half an hour.

The onions will break down and should turn a deep, deep brown color. When the onions have reduced to about one cup, remove from heat and set aside to cool down to room temperature.

Empty the container of Chobani Non-Fat Plain Yogurt into a large bowl. Stir in the caramelized onions, season with salt and pepper again, and add the garlic powder. Stir well to combine and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight before serving. I reused the Chobani container to store the dip in the fridge!
