Recipe: Healthy Sundried Tomato Dip with Chobani 0%

I love a creamy dip as an appetizer and over the course of my 20's, I probably enjoyed gallons of homemade spinach dip made with mayo, cheese and sour cream. However, my metabolism these days has zero tolerance for the fat and calories that come with cream-based dips. 
They are sooo fattening and have zero redeeming nutritional qualities! 

Enter the solution: Chobani 0%!  I like to use Chobani Greek yogurt (plain flavor) as a sub for sour cream on tacos, in chili, and as a means to make my Indian dishes creamy without all the fat. This is another way to incorporate it into a dish for entertaining friends: a low fat, low-calorie dip that I make using Chobani 0% plain. (It's called 0% because it has that much fat = zero!)



Healthy Sundried Tomato Dip:

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup Chobani 0%
  • 2 tbsp chopped subdried tomatoes (packed in oil)
  • 1 tsbp chopped green onion
  •  1 tbsp. of chopped garlic
Directions:
  • Combine these ingredients in a small bowl
  • Simultaneously, in a pan, cook garlic (with PAM spray) for about 30 seconds to a minute on Low. (Careful not to burn it, or you'll have to start all over again!)
  • Toss the garlic in with the other ingredients into a small food processor and pulse about 8-10 times.
  • Refrigerate for 3 hours so all the flavors combine nicely.
  • Top with extra sundried tomatoes right from the jar and some extra chopped green onion (optional)
  • Serve with crackers or sliced peppers and cucumbers.

 Enjoy!
