Dairy Free French Onion Dip {Gluten Free + Vegan + Paleo + Whole30}

This dairy-free french onion dip is a healthier homemade take on a true classic! Made with cashews instead of sour cream/mayonnaise and TWO kinds of deeply caramelized onions.

– Raw cashews –  Water, plus more to soak cashews – Yellow onions, thinly sliced – Olive oil – Kosher salt – Green onions, white and light green parts thinly sliced (can be omitted) – Lemon juice – Coconut aminos – Nutritional yeast


 In a medium sized heat proof bowl cover raw cashews with just boiled water. Allow to soak for at least 30 minutes or up to overnight.

Trim and cut onions in half and thinly slice. Try and cut them into as even slices as possible, so that they cook at an even rate.

Heat olive oil over medium heat in a large skillet. The bigger the skillet (more surface area) the faster your onions will caramelize

Once hot, add onions with kosher salt. Sauté, stirring every few minutes, until the onions have softened considerably. Lower the heat to medium low and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until deeply caramelized and tender.
