Using labneh as its base, which is a thick and creamy Middle Eastern yogurt cheese, this dip mixes in deeply caramelized onions and fennel along with thyme and savory Worcestershire sauce. Serve it alongside some crackers and crudité for an easy yet impressive appetizer, or dollop it onto grilled chicken, lamb, or roasted eggplant.

Instructions Checklist
  • In a large saucepan, heat 2 tablespoons oil over medium. Add onions, fennel, thyme, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring often, until brown, about 45 minutes. (If necessary, add a splash of water to keep onions from sticking.) Add sherry and Worcestershire; cook until evaporated, about 5 minutes. Let cool completely.
