View Full Version : Alissa's Onion Dip
03-26-2006, 05:46 PM
I just made the onion dip and it is great but NOT really really smooth. I used my FP and didn't know if it might get more smooth with a blender. From Alissa's book it says it should be very smooth. It still taste nutty crunchy.
Very Very Good, Lots of Flavor.

If you make it in a Vitamix you can get a smooth creamy texture... sometime you might have to add a little more water to get it to move in the blender.
In a food processor I would think it very difficult to get smooth - but it's still really tasty!!

What I did (prior to getting a Vitamix) was put it in the blender. It will get smoother but you have to really BLEEEEENNNNDDD it (I wanted mine so smooth that I would blend, go and do something while it was blending...come back, turn it off so the blender wouldn't overheat and then after a while, blend some more!), adding a bit more water if necessary to get it to turn and mix well for you.
You can also do as I did the very first time I made it which was to blend in the processor first and then move the contents to the blender and finish it off there. A bit more work, but it will get smoother than what you have now.
But try maybe even grinding the nuts up first either in the food processor or coffee grinder and THEN blending it with the other ingredients.

That is the texture suppose to be like. The real french onion dip? That is what I wanted.
I just ordered a vitamix today so I can't wait to use it.
