This creamy, savory vegan caramelized onion dip is the perfect Super Bowl appetizer!



  • 3 medium yellow onions, sliced thinly
  • 2 tbsp vegan butter
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp tamari or soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 12 oz vegan sour cream, softened at room temp
  • 10 oz vegan cream cheese, softened at room temp
  • 1/4 cup chopped chives


  1. Slice onions very thinly.
  2. Heat a large pan to medium and add butter. Once butter is melted, reduce heat to low and add onions and salt. Sauté for 10-15 minutes, stirring often.
  3. After about 15 minutes, add soy sauce and start adding wine, little by little, stirring often.
  4. Continue cooking for about 15 minutes, or until onions are deeply golden brown and caramelized. (See above photos for reference).
  5. In a large bowl, use a hand mixer to cream together vegan sour cream and cream cheese. Add caramelized onions and chopped chives and stir well.
  6. Serve with chips and sliced veggies. Enjoy!


Tamari/soy sauce helps the caramelization process and adds extra umami flavor - it's just not the same without it!
