Caramelized Onion Dip

Caramelized Onion Dip

I’ve had several phone calls today asking for last-minute appetizer ideas. And my advice is to give the people what they want CARAMELIZED ONION DIP ? but make it a notch up from the store-bought with a few more nutrients ya know?


  • 3 white or yellow onions sliced
  • 2 tbsp butter (maybe more)
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 3 tsp coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp soy sauce 
  • 1/4 cup veganaise (or mayo)
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt  (or sour cream)
  • 1 container cream cheese room temperature (I use Kite Hill Almond Cream Cheese)


  • Slice the onions and in a pot/pan/whatever melt the butter on medium-low. 
  • Add the onions and start the process. After about 10 minutes when they start getting soft add the salt, pepper, and sugar. 
  • Continue cooking and tossing them around every few minutes. This process will go on for a good 44 minutes. Low and slow. 
  • Once they are browned and caramelized with a few crusty bits put them in a bowl and chill them in the fridge for 15-20 mins. 
  • Stir the soy sauce into the onions and incorporate well.
  • hen add the veganaise, Greek yogurt, and cream cheese one at a time to combine. 
  • The dip should be smooth, creamy, and just thick enough. Devour with some good (or bad…bad meaning ruffles) potato chips and thank me later. 


If you want to make it a little less thick, add some milk of your choice 1 tbsp at a time.
