Vegan French Onion Dip

Vegan French Onion Dip

Who doesn’t love a good french onion dip with potato chips, or a veggie plate. Vegan french onion dip is super quick, and easy to throw together, and is the perfect dip for snacking. We used almond milk plain yogurt to make this dip, but use your favorite brand of vegan plain yogurt or sour cream. I often use plain vegan yogurt in the place of sour cream because for me, its easier to find, and works great in place of sour cream. I also prefer to use an almond milk yogurt to a coconut yogurt, but that is just my preference. Use whatever you like! Just make sure you have enough chips on hand because this dip is addictive!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup finely diced yellow onion

  • 1/3 cup vegan mayo

  • 1/3 cup plain vegan yogurt or sour cream (we used Kite Hill yogurt)

  • 1 teaspoon onion salt

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  • garnish with diced green onions, chives, or fresh chopped parsley

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Make sure the onions are diced super fine. Heat a medium skillet over medium heat. Add 1/2 teaspoon of oil or vegan butter and the onions. Cook until the onions are soft, and beginning to brown. Allow onions to cool.

  2. Mix mayo, yogurt, or sour cream, spices and cooled onions together. Sprinkle with garnish. Pop the dip back in the fridge to thicken. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days.

  3. Serve with chips or veggies.

INSTRUCTIONS:

Preheat over to 350 degrees

  1. Spray the inside of a cupcake tin lightly with some cooking oil. Take a tortilla and press it into the muffin tin so that it forms to the shape of the cup. You will have to overlap it some to make it fit. Corn tortillas tend to tear when you are trying to press them into the pan.No big deal, just overlap at the tear if that happens. Repeat with remaining tortillas. If you only have a 12 cup muffin tin, then you will have to do this in batches.

  2. Place the pan in the preheated oven and allow the tortillas to bake for 10-15 minutes. Just make sure they are crisp around the edges and down the sides before removing from the oven. Once they are done remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 to 10 minutes.

  3. Mix cream cheese and cheddar shreds together with 1/2 teaspoon of cumin and 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder. Set aside.

  4. For the guacamole, remove avocado from peels and add them to a medium size bowl. Mash the avocados with a fork until they are relatively smooth. Add 1/2 teaspoon of cumin, 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder, juice from the lime, and salt and pepper to taste. Stir well and set aside.

  5. Remove the tortillas from the muffin tin and place them on a platter.

  6. Begin layering each tortilla by first adding a few teaspoons of refried beans, then the cheese mixture, lettuce, tomato, onions, peppers, and guacamole. Top each on with a sprinkle of cilantro and a drop of hot sauce if you like a spicy kick!
