Vegan French Onion Dip (GF)

Vegan French Onion Dip (GF)


  • 1 tablespoon oil (coconut, vegetable, rapeseed or olive)
  • 1 onion , thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon agave syrup (or sub any other sweetener)
  • Splash white wine * (ensure vegan/gluten-free if necessary)
  • 400 g (14 oz) tin of white beans , drained and rinsed (cannellini, haricot or butter beans)
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 60 ml (1/4 cup) unsweetened almond milk (or sub unsweetened oat milk for nut-free)
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar (ensure gluten-free if necessary)
  • 1 tablespoon tamari (or soy sauce if not gluten-free)
  • Salt + pepper to taste

To serve (suggestions):

  • Fresh parsley , roughly chopped
  • Tortilla chips (ensure gluten-free if necessary)
  • Vegetable crudités


  • Heat up oil in a pan and add the onion once hot
  • Cook for around 15 minutes with a lid over it, stirring occasionally, until very soft and caramelised – add the agave syrup and a pinch of salt towards the end
  • Add a splash of wine and cook for a further couple of minutes until all the wine has disappeared
  • Meanwhile, place the white beans, nutritional yeast, almond milk, vinegar, tamari and salt + pepper in a food processor or blender and whizz until completely smooth
  • Add the caramelised onions and mix well
  • Scatter over fresh parsley and serve alongside tortilla chips and vegetable crudités, if desired
  • Keeps covered in the fridge for up to a couple of days. Leftovers taste great in a sandwich!
