Two Easy And Delicious Veggie Dip Recipes

Kevin and I spent Saturday afternoon at a friend’s house watching the Georgia/Tennessee game (way to pull out a win, UGA!) and were asked to bring veggies and dip to contribute to the game day snack mix. I don’t have a go-to dip recipe, so I spent some time hunting down a few options online and decided to go with a Greek yogurt-based dip with chives and dried dill along with a roasted veggie recipe courtesy of Alton Brown.

Both were easy and turned out really well, so I thoughts I’d share those recipes with y’all! Mix these up for a delicious addition to your next game day spread:

First up, Garlic and Herb Greek Yogurt Dip*:

Ingredients

  • 1 cup plain, 2% Greek yogurt (I went with Fage)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped chives
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1 Tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Veggies for dipping (I used baby carrots, cucumber, bell pepper, and cherry tomatoes)

*My one complaint with this recipe is that it doesn’t make a whole lot of dip, so if you’re planning to feed a more substantial amount of people I’d consider doubling it.

Directions

  • In a small bowl, combine all ingredients.
  • Start dipping! (See? Told you this one was easy.)

Next? Alton Brown’s Roasted Veggie Dip:

Ingredients

  • 1 red pepper, sliced into rings
  • 1 medium onion, sliced into rings
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 zucchini, sliced
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 ounces reduced fat cream cheese
  • Salt and pepper
  • Pita chips for dipping

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  • Place the bell pepper, onion, garlic, zucchini, and olive oil in a medium-sized bowl and toss until the veggies are coated with oil. Spread vegetables evenly on the baking sheet.

roasted veggies

  • Roast veggies until they soften and begin to brown around the edges (about 30 minutes). Remove from oven and cool.
  • Place roasted veggies — along with cream cheese — into a food processor and blend until just combined (not until the mixture is completely smooth).
