Have a look at our post on why we love dips so much and why dips are great for kids. This is one of our favourites, a nice creamy dip with the irresistible sweetness from caramelised onions. Harry loves this one on its own, dolloped on pizza, and in sandwiches.

Nutrition Note: Try using ricotta in dips as a lighter and fresher tasting alternative to sour cream.

    Could you use honey instead of maple syrup? We don’t eat maple syrup usually, would be a waste for 1 tbsp!!! Thank you
