Instructions Checklist
  • Place coconut oil, olive oil, beans, onion powder, lemon juice, cider vinegar, and salt in a food processor. Blend until thick and smooth, about 1 minute. Transfer to a large bowl and chill, covered, until cold and set to a spreadable consistency, at least 1 hour.

  • Melt oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook onions with a pinch of salt and a few dashes pepper, stirring frequently, 3 minutes. Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are very soft, sweet, and amber brown, about 35 minutes more. Transfer to a bowl and cool completely, about 1 hour.

  • Fold caramelized onions into tangy creamy cheese with a rubber spatula. Season with salt and pepper, and sprinkle with green onions.

Delicious and a lot less calories than the typical veggie dip. I must say it is shocking that someone actually reviewed this recipe and admitted that they didn't actually try making the dip. Strange that such a "review" would be accepted for submission and quite unfair to the creator of this yummy recipe. Read More

I didn't make this & gave a rating only because the review requires it. I guessed a 3 would be neutral. In step 3 she says to "Fold caramelized onions into tangy creamy cheese..." That is misleading and confusing since there is no cheese in this recipe. For search engines better titles would be Isa's "vegan french onion dip or Isa's french onion "bean" dip. Recipe sounds interesting though and may taste good as a bean dip. Read More

For what it is it's very good. I really liked it but my non-vegetarian friends didn't go for more than one dip. It might be nicer if I found a way to make it less thick. Between the coconut oil and the caramelized onions it tasted quite sweet so it would be nice served with salty pita chips or saltier veggies like celery. Or maybe try a bit of salt? Just thinking out loud how I might tweak it for next time. But as I said it's nice at is it and is what it claims to be:) Read More
