Reduced-Fat French Onion Dip
When the solution (low-fat cottage cheese) turns into the problem (grainy texture), what then?
Why This Recipe Works
Low-fat cottage cheese and low-fat sour cream made a rich-tasting, creamy base for our Reduced-Fat French Onion Dip that tasters loved. We pureed the low-fat cottage cheese with boiling water to eliminate its graininess and improve the dip’s creamy texture. The neutral flavor of cottage cheese offset the assertive flavors of sweet caramelized onions, Worcestershire sauce, and garlic powder in our Reduced-Fat French Onion Dip.
