Vegan French Onion Dip

Perfect for game day, this is a from scratch veganized version of the french onion dip we’ve all had at parties over the years.


1 C of raw cashews, soaked overnight 1 1/2 tsp of salt (or more to taste) 1/2 tsp of garlic powder 1/3 C of water 1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar (or white vinegar) 1 1/2 C of yellow onion, finely chopped 1 tsp of oil, medium-high heat

Place raw cashews in a bowl and cover with water by about 2-3 inches. Place in refrigerator and let soak overnight. If short on time, simply cover cashews with boiling water and let soak as long as possible. Ideal soak time is 8 hours, minimum is 2 hours.

Drain cashews and rinse in a colander. Set aside. In a skillet, saute finely chopped onion in 1 tsp of medium heat oil. Cook on low heat, covered for 15 minutes, then remove cover and cook an additional 5 minutes until golden brown.

In a food processor, combine all ingredients and process for 3-4 minutes on high until rich and creamy. Adding more water and scraping down the sides as needed.  Ideally, chill for 1-2 hours before serving (but you can eat it immediately as well) Enjoy!
