  • 1 1/2 pounds mixed onions
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tbps Omnivore salt or to taste, divided use
  • 1 1/2 cups plain whole milk yogurt (try the one from Straus)
  • 2 tsp lime juice


  • Preheat oven to 400º.
  • Peel and trim ends off the onions. Cut in half lengthwise. Place halves cut side down on cutting board, then thinly slice.
  • Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Toss onion and garlic cloves with oil and water until evenly coated. Season with Omnivore salt and toss again until well coated.
  • Bake, tossing and stirring onions every 10 minutes, until all onions are golden brown and softened, 40–50 minutes total (some onions will brown more than others but that’s okay!). Let cool.
  • Transfer onions and garlic to a cutting board and squeeze out garlic cloves from peel. Using the flat side of a chef’s knife, smash garlic cloves to a paste. Transfer to a medium bowl.
  • Finely chop caramelized onions and transfer to bowl with garlic.
  • Add yogurt and lime juice; season with more Omnivore salt.  Stir to combine. 


Serve with ruffled potato chips - and some celery or carrot sticks if you like.
