When I write the grocery list, but Justin does the grocery shopping, there can sometimes be some miscommunication. One such time, I needed 2 individual green onions and he bought 2 bundles of green onion. And I can only use so much green onion throughout the week for a garnish.

So, what do we do next? Let’s make it into a yummy chip dip! I am a sucker for chip dips. I could (and have) made a total meal out of Taco Dip and Hot Virginia Dip.

Actually, the recipe for Hot Virginia Dip was the basis for this recipe. Using the cream cheese as the base was delicious. The only real work that needs to be done is roasting the green onions before mixing the dip. But that’s easy to do.

If you like a lot of onion flavor, you could do another bundle of green onions. I thought it was perfect how it was. Justin said he would want to add more onions next time.

Step by Step

Preheat the oven to 425F. Place the green onions in a shallow baking pan. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with 1/2 tsp salt and toss to coat.

Spread in an even layer and roast for 15-20 minutes. Your thinner pieces will start to crisp. That’s ok, it will all mix together in the end.

Place the onions in a food processor to finely chop. Transfer to a mixing bowl and add the cream cheese, sour cream, lemon zest, lemon juice, and 1/2 tsp salt. Mix until thoroughly combined.
