Blue potato chips need more than just your run of the mill Dean’s French Onion Dip. No offense Dean’s, but they need something with a little more depth, something with a little more class and definitely something with a little more flavor. They need caramelized leek dip.
I usually find potato chips on the boring side. But when eaten with this dip, I had to practice my potato-eating self constraint, they are extra thick and crunchy – which in my world means they are just begging to be dipped. Terra also has an Exotic Harvest variety of chips with carrots, kabocha squash and blue potatoes that I enjoy – anything but boring. Now squash in a chip form doesn’t mean it’s healthy, but you know my food philosophy, there is room for every food in a balanced diet, chips included.
Caramelized Leek Dip – makes about 1 1/2 cups
- 1 cup sliced leeks
- 2 Tbsp white balsamic vinegar
- 1 cup light sour cream
- 1 tsp dijon mustard
- green onions for garnish
Heat pan and 2 tsp olive oil over medium heat. When hot add leeks and cook for about 2 minutes until golden brown. Pour balsamic vinegar into pan and stir frequently until all liquid has evaporated, another 2-3 minutes.
Stir leek mixture and dijon mustard into sour cream, seasoning salt and pepper to taste.
Let chill for at least 30 minutes. Spread a spoonful onto chip and garnish with a few green onion slices.
