spinach and onion dip

Ready to make an amazing, crowd-pleasing dip that will make your taste buds dance when served with chips and veggies.  Look no further because this tasty spinach and onion dip is gonna rock your world!

This recipe calls for caramelized onions, which does take a little time.  The caramelization process requires cooking your onions low and slow for 25-30 minutes with butter (or oil for other recipes) until they are soft and golden brown.  But, as they say, the best things in life are worth waiting for.

Prep Time: 30-35 minutes Cook Time: 25-30 minutes Ready in: ~60 minutes


  • 5-oz. of fresh baby spinach, coarsely chopped
  • 4 cups of chopped Vidalia onions (other sweet onions will work also)
  • 16-oz. of sour cream
  • 3 tablespoons of salted butter
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt (x2)
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper (x2)

caramelized onions

Let’s start by caramelizing your onions.  Begin by melting your butter in a nonstick pan over medium heat.  Add your chopped onions and stir them frequently so nothing burns for 25-30 minutes, or until tender and golden.  Your onions are caramelized, and they’re going to taste and smell amazing!

Add your coarsely chopped spinach with ½ teaspoon of salt and ¼ teaspoon of pepper, then stir for about a minute or until the spinach is wilted.

Remove your spinach and onions mixture from the stove, and allow it to cool for about 30 minutes.

Once cool, mix your spinach and onions mixture with sour cream, chives and ½ teaspoon of salt and ¼ teaspoon of pepper. 

You can let it chill again for 30-minutes, or serve it right away.

Just grab all the cucumbers, peppers, radishes, beans, peas and tomatoes you can harvest from your indoor garden, and enjoy!
