  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika

    Transfer the smooth mixture to a large bowl and stir in the onion, chives, paprika, and salt. Grate the garlic clove with a microplane grater and stir that in as well.

More About This Recipe

  • Sweet potatoes combine with caramelized onions and spices in this amazing dip that makes for a perfect party pleaser. If you like onion dip, you've gotta try this version with sweet potatoes and yogurt. Wow. I love a nice homemade onion dip but they tend to be on the fatty side, so I thought it would be interesting to try and make a healthier version. My first thought was to replace the sour cream/mayo combination with just sweet potato, but without a creamy element it was too far from the original to really satisfy the craving. It was also a little lumpy. So I added a scoop of yogurt and it really gave the dip the flavor and body you look for in an onion dip! This dip has beautiful complex flavors in a creamy sweet package!
