Vegan French Onion Dip

This classic homemade vegan French onion dip is a deliciously creamy, tangy combination of homemade vegan sour cream, caramelized onions, and several seasonings. The result is a vegan onion dip worthy of chips, veggies, and even use as a condiment! No dairy, no MSG, and super simple to make in just three steps!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Heat oil in a pan and once hot add chopped onion. Cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, then add a splash of water or vegetable broth. Keep cooking the onion for about 20 more minutes, adding more liquid if needed, until the onions are nicely caramelized.
    Note- The liquid will help to deglaze the pan and stop the onions from crisping up.
  • To a medium bowl, add vegan sour cream, caramelized onions, and all other ingredients. Stir to combine.
  • Taste it and adjust seasonings. You can also add a pinch of cayenne pepper for some heat. Garnish with fresh parsley and enjoy!

Notes

  • Vegan sour cream: I used homemade vegan sour cream, however, you can use vegan cream cheese (e.g. Tofutti) instead, or a combination of vegan mayo and sour cream.
  • Tamari: You can substitute the tamari for vegan Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, or coconut aminos.
  • White vinegar: Use apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, lime juice or even dill pickle water if you prefer.
  • You can serve the sour cream dip immediately or allow it to chill in the fridge for a couple of hours first for a fantastic depth of flavor.
  • Read the blog post for serving suggestions and more variations.
