Sour Cream, Chives and Onion Dip

You're probably as astonished as I am. I don't know if it was Lenten fasting that did it to me, or the influx of sweet, sticky, melty goodness that engulfed me over Easter, but I've been a little more interested in savory things of late. Imagine my amazement to find something delicious enough to blog about that wasn't sweet and was made by my own hands. I never thought I had it in me.
Like lots of amazing things, this delicious dip was created by chance. My mind does not think in savory ways (my thoughts are not too unsavory, I hope), so anything invented by myself that isn't sweet, and tastes good, is surely a fluke.
It's very simple really, and utterly, ridiculously addictive. I stumbled upon it while creating my last Secret Recipe Club post, and, on licking that spoon, discovered that I had indeed invented another recipe at the same time. I almost had to make another batch, as I instantly whipped out the rice crackers and my son and I sat on the floor and dug in with glee. Between bites he sang out "Mumm mmum mmmum!" I take that as pretty high praise. "Yum" has become "Mum", oh that's how I like it!


4-5 stalks fresh chives, chopped (2 tbsp)
1 cup thick sour cream
2 tsp french onion soup powder
1 tsp crushed garlic

Place the sour cream in a small bowl, and stir the garlic through. Finely chop the chives and add to the sour cream. Sprinkle the onion powder over the chives and stir to combine.
Refrigerate if not serving immediately. Enjoy with crackers.
