Vegan French Onion Dip

Kids love dip! And so do Moms and Dads…

Serving a delicious dip is a great way to jazz up a veggie platter, making the veggies more exciting to eat. It also makes a great sandwich spread. We eat a lot of hummus and guacamole in our house, but sometimes a change of pace is much needed. The caramelized onions add a rich and delicious flavor to this plant-based French onion dip. The onions are sautéed slowly over low heat, maximizing their flavor.

Get ready, the smell of slow cooked onions is going to take over your house and make it smell great!
