Vegan French Onion Dip

The EASIEST and BEST Vegan French Onion Dip Recipe

Did you ever combine one of those store-bought French onion soup packets with a container of sour cream to make dip? If you did, you know that stuff is TASTY! However, those soup packets are filled with tons of chemicals. So, I decided to create a much cleaner and vegan recipe! This vegan French onion dip tastes remarkably IDENTICAL to that store-bought stuff.

Dipping a potato chip into the vegan French onion dip

One bowl, one spoon, and five minutes is all you need!

First, I stir a vegan beef bouillon cube with a little bit of vegan sour cream until the cube is nearly dissolved. Then, I mix it with the rest of the sour cream, Worcestershire sauce, sugar, dried minced onion, and a few other staple kitchen seasonings.

The vegan beef bouillon cube and vegan Worcestershire sauce are vital ingredients in this recipe. They are what give the dip its depth of flavor. With that being said, NO, this dip does not taste like beef, haha. If you cannot find these two ingredients in stores, you can order them both on Amazon. If you are also unable to order through Amazon, read my “tiparooskis,” located below the recipe, for other ingredient suggestions.

This vegan French onion dip is ridiculously quick, easy, and delicious. If you've ever made onion dip by combining store-bought French onion soup mix and sour cream, this is a vegan copycat recipe for that!

  • Add the NOT-BEEF seasoning cube and about 2 tablespoons of the vegan sour cream into a small bowl. Stir until the seasoning cube is completely dissolved into the sour cream.
  • Add the rest of the sour cream and the other ingredients into that bowl. Stir until well combined. Let rest for 5 minutes to allow the dried minced onions to soften. Then enjoy it as is, or place it in the refrigerator for a few hours to thicken up! Serve with potato chips.
  • *SOME QUICK NOTES (Read my tiparooskis, located right below the recipe, for more in-depth notes!)
    -The dried minced onions will soften in a few minutes, so don't worry, the dip won't have crunchy bits!
    -The dip will thicken A LOT once it's sat in the fridge for a few hours.
    -The dip tastes even BETTER the next day!

Welcome to my tip section of the vegan French onion dip recipe! Here I provide my top tips to help you perfect the recipe. Sometimes, I also give substitute suggestions that I think you may find helpful.

  1. If you cannot find or are entirely unable to purchase the Edward & Son’s NOT-BEEF seasoning cubes, try swapping it out for a similar product. Perhaps there is another brand that sells a vegan beef seasoning cube that you love. I know Better Than Bouillon sells a Vegan Beef Base paste, and I think it would work well in this recipe. Since it is a paste and not a cube, I would recommend using one heavy teaspoon. With that being said, I have made my vegan onion dip recipe only using the NOT-BEEF seasoning cube. So, you will have to use your best judgment if you use a different brand or ingredient.
  2. If you cannot find or are entirely unable to purchase a vegan Worcestershire sauce, try swapping it out for soy sauce. Or, you could try using tamari or liquid aminos. But, again, I have not made this recipe with anything other than vegan Worcestershire sauce. These are just my best suggestions because I know several people are going to want to know. Again, you will have to use your best judgment if you use a different ingredient than what my recipe calls for.
  3. This dip tastes even BETTER the next day! It’s one of those recipes that keeps getting tastier because all of the flavors essentially marinate together as time goes on. So, if you think the dip tastes delicious immediately, wait until you taste it the next day (if it lasts that long!)
  4. Your French onion dip’s thickness will depend on the brand of vegan sour cream you choose to use. For this batch, I used Tofutti’s sour cream. I found the dip’s consistency to be perfect when freshly made. However, it does slightly thicken more once it’s been in the fridge for a while. So, if you find that you’d like your dip to be a bit thinner, stir in a tiny splash of water.

    I’ve had vegan french onion dip before but it was always too sweet or just tasted a tad off but THIS! This is amaaaaaazing! My husband and I didn’t even have all the right ingredients but wanted to try it so badly so I just subbed the Tofutti with Forager Sour Cream, fried shallots that we crushed up instead of the dried minced onion, and celery salt and no additional salt instead of the celery seeds and salt and it actually turned out so good that we went to the store the next day to get all the correct ingredients to make it again for our family since we already ate the whole thing and used a spatula to scrape the bowl down clean haahaa! I was going to take a picture and tag you but it was already half gone, next time I’ll remember to do it! Thank you for this recipe!!!! <3

    You saved the day. My son is bringing his girlfriend to meet us today. She’s vegan and so am I. I wanted to make a nice dip and scored some Tofutti sour cream on markdown at a great price. I looked for a quick, easy dip to go with the veggie tray. Wonderful recipe. Thanks loads!
