This light dip is superb with these easy low-fat crisps. The crisps keep well in an airtight container – so make a big batch.


  • 2 tbsp butter or vegetable oil
  • 1 lb fresh mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup light sour cream
  • 2 tsp dried dill weed
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • Baked pita crisps (recipe below)


Warm Mushroom Dip:

  1. In a large skillet melt butter over medium heat; stir in mushrooms, lemon juice, garlic and onions sauté until tender and the liquid given off by the mushrooms has evaporated, about 5 –7 minutes.
  2. Reduce heat to simmer; mix in sour cream, dill weed, paprika, salt and pepper and simmer until slightly thickened and warm.
  3. Serve warm with pita crisps, multigrain, low-fat crackers or breadsticks

Baked Pita Crisps:

  1. Cut 2 whole wheat pita bread in half horizontally with scissors or a serrated knife.
  2. Cut each half into 8 triangles.
  3. Arrange in a single layer on a cookie sheet; bake at 400ºF(200ºC) for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned.


Tip: Substitute 2 tbsp (25 mL) fresh minced dill for the dried and garnish with fresh dill sprigs.

Baked Pita Crips Variation: Tortilla Crisps – Substitute 4 small whole wheat flour tortillas for pitas.
