  • Mixing bowl
  • Whisk
  • Cast iron or stainless steel skillet


  • 8 oz Vegan Cream Cheese I like Kite Hill
  • 8 oz Vegan Sour Cream
  • 1 yellow onion or Vidalia sweet onion
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 packet Lipton's French Onion Soup Mix
  • 3 Tbsp finely chopped chives
  • 1 tsp garlic powder


  • Remove cream cheese and sour cream from refrigerator and let come up room temperature.
  • In a cast iron or stainless steel pan, cook onions in oil until caramelized, about 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together cream cheese and sour cream until smooth. Add Lipton's soup mix, chives, garlic powder and 1/2 tsp each salt and pepper. Fold in caramelized onions. Adjust salt to taste.
  • Let chill for one hour or preferably overnight. This helps the flavors meld and become more pronounced. Serve with chips or sliced veggies.
