This simple, caramelized onion dip is a creamy, vegan take on everyone’s favorite appetizer – minus the sour cream. Serve it cold with Cape Cod Waves® for a dairy free snack that’s perfect for holidays and football parties.


  • 6 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 2 sweet onions, chopped
  • 3/4 cup cashews, soaked in water overnight
  • 3/4 cup coconut cream
  • 2 teaspoons dried minced onion
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce (or soy sauce/coconut amigos for vegan)
  • 2 teaspoons cider vinegar
  • 12 bags Cape Cod Waves® potato chips, for serving


  1. Heat a large skillet to medium. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil, chopped onions and a pinch of coarse salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are soft and caramelized. Remove from heat and let cool.
  2. In a food processor or blender, soaked cashews, coconut cream, minced onion, salt, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar and remaining olive oil. Blend until smooth. Transfer mixture to a bowl.
  3. Stir in caramelized onions until evenly distributed. Adjust seasoning with salt, to taste.
  4. Serve with Cape Cod Waves®.
