Creamy French Onion Dip

Start to finish: 30 minutes
Servings: 16


Ingredients:


2 tablespoons olive oil
2 large sweet onions, sliced
4 shallots, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
16 ounces low-fat cottage cheese
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
2 teaspoons chopped fresh marjoram
1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives

Method:


In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions, shallots, garlic, salt and pepper. Saute until the onions are browned and caramelized, about 15 to 18 minutes, stirring occasionally. If the garlic begins to brown too much, add a few tablespoons of water and continue cooking.
Allow the mixture to cool for 10 minutes, then transfer it to a food processor and puree until smooth. Add the cottage cheese, thyme and marjoram. Puree again until smooth. Stir in the chopped chives. The dip can be served immediately, but benefits from being refrigerated for an hour or so to give the flavors time to combine.
