Chips and dip are such a classic combination – we had them at every party, sleepover, barbecue, and super bowl I can remember!  I wanted to make a vegan version that was high protein and dairy free.  This 5 minute blender sour cream dip couldn’t be easier to make – add all the blender ingredients, mix, and fold in the green onions at the end for a fresh and fun party classic.

This dip is great for classic potato chips, added to a baked potato, or just as a dip for veggie sticks.  This is one dip that will go FAST at your next gathering, take my word for it.

What’s In This Dairy Free Sour Cream and Onion Dip?

See the recipe card below for full ingredient amounts and recipe instructions!

  • Silken Tofu – or if you don’t like tofu you can use a dairy free sour cream.
  • Nutritional Yeast: not to be confused with bread baking yeast, nutritional yeast has a cheesy nutty umami flavor which is great in all kinds of dishes – I even sprinkle it on fresh popped pop corn and WOW!  Also great in soups and sauces of all kinds.
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Fresh lemon juice
  • Red Wine Vinegar: I used red wine vinegar to give this dip a really nice bright flavor – for that, this red wine vinegar is my go-to!
  • Garlic Powder: Also a major pantry staple ingredient that get used in our house daily! I love this garlic powder and add it to a lot of recipes that I would use fresh garlic in too.
  • Yellow Onions – I blend a bit of yellow onion into the dip to give it a light subtle onion flavor
  • Green Onions – to fold into the dip, and also for extra garnish on top!

A No-Cook Dip Recipe That’s Perfect for Summer

This no-cook onion and sour cream dip is a quick and simple recipe.  I love a good no-cook recipe for those days when I’m not feeling like standing around the stove, or for summer nights when I want a snack but it’s too hot to cook. I have a whole collection of recipes that require zero cooking at all, check them out here

This dip comes together in about 5 minutes in your blender, and doesn’t require the stove or microwave to make. Just use a few pantry staple ingredients and you have a quick meal ready in no time.  And very little to clean up afterwards… an added bonus!

How Do I Make Sour Cream and Onion Dip Vegan?

  1. Add all ingredients except the green onions to a blender or food processor, and mix on low speed until the tofu becomes creamy and thick. Taste and adjust seasoning, adding more salt if needed.
  2. Transfer the dip to a bowl. Fold in half of the green onions into the dip, and sprinkle the other half on top.
  3. Dip chips, veggies, or crackers… and enjoy!
