  • Author: Eat Drink Shrink
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 4 cups 1x




  • 4 sweet onions, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp vegan butter
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 2 tsp vegan worcestershire


  • 1/2 block tofu (I used firm, you can use soft)
  • 1 1/2 cups soaked cashews, soaked overnight
  • 1/4 cup almond milk, or as needed to create the ideal texture
  • ¼ teaspoon salt/pepper
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast


  1. Onions: In a large pan over medium heat add the vegan butter, Throw in the sliced onions, sugar, salt, and cook for at least 20 minutes until browned. Stirring often to prevent burning. If they appear that they are burning, add a touch of butter. Once the the onions turn a deep golden brown color, add white wine, and cook for an additional 10 minutes until the wine is reduced. Now add the thyme, garlic, and worcestershire and cook for an additional 3 minutes. Remove a portion of the onions for topping and Set aside.
  2. Dip: Place drained tofu and all of the other ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Add additional almond milk as needed to achieve desired consistency. Combine the onion mixture with the blended cashew mixture. Top with the onions you set aside. Sere cold, room temp, or even hot!
  3. To serve, Serve with chips, veggies, toast, crackers or whatever you desire!
