The slightly bitter flavour of burnt onion works wonderfully added to classic soured cream and chive dip. Serve with crunchy crudités for an easy drinks party snack or as a sauce for cooked meat or fish.

Ingredients

  • 1 banana shallot
  • 1 small leek
  • 3 spring onions
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 250ml soured cream
  • ½ crushed garlic clove
  • the juice of ½ lemon
  • a handful of freshly chopped chives

Method

  1. Heat the grill to high. Thinly slice the banana shallot, leek and spring onions, then toss in olive oil and spread evenly on a baking tray lined with foil. Grill for 15-17 minutes, tossing once, until almost completely blackened. Allow to cool, then roughly chop and mix together with the soured cream, crushed garlic, lemon juice chopped chives. Season, then serve.

  1. Makes a great dip for bread or crudités, or a sauce to dollop over grilled pork, chicken or fish. Stir with shredded chicken and mild curry powder, then top with chopped fresh parsley as
    a fresh take on coronation chicken. It’s also great with roasted Mediterranean vegetables and couscous.
