I received a sample package of this vegetable recipe mix attached to another of the manufacturer's products and it sat around for a while...
I like to make a raw vegetable dipping mix by mixing any onion soup mix with sour cream and serving with bite sized pieces of any of the following:
- green onions
- bell peppers
- sliced radishes
- sliced mushrooms
- halved mini-carrots or
- julienned regular carrots
- red or brown onion squares
- pick your own favorites
One day I was out of onion soup mix and there the Knorr vegetable mix was so I tried it ... and it was delicious!!! The vegetable flakes absorb moisture and integrate with the mix. Some of the flakes add a bit of spice, and it's a nice change from my usual onion soup mix.
For a lower calorie version of either, use reduced-fat or non-fat sour cream. Mix the vegetable mix or onion soup mix into the sour cream a bit at a time until you like the strength of flavor.
Unused dip can be refrigerated and served 1-2 days later, however the mix thickens in the refrigerator so just add more sour cream to achieve an optimal dipping thickness.
To sum it up, I like this product and it's a tasty alternative to my usual onion soup mix dip recipe.
