Had Enough Hummus? 5 Other Yummy Vegan Dips

Maybe it’s that around the holidays you’re eating in other folks’ homes more often, but I get so. sick. of. hummus during this time of year. Well-meaning hosts tack hummus onto a spread so the vegans will have something to snack on, and it is so kind of them to accommodate! Most of the time, I’m happy to devour veggies and crackers dipped in hummus, but sometimes it’s nice to mix things up with other vegan dips instead!

I think that one of the things that puts people off when it comes to veganism is the perception that our food choices are limited. It’s easy to assume that vegans eat salad, hummus, and not much else, and I love sharing tasty vegan recipes to highlight the variety and deliciousness that you can have in a vegan diet!

There are actually lots of tasty vegan dips and spreads besides hummus, and they’re often just as easy to make. Next time you’re planning a party spread or just looking to beef up your on-hand snack selection, try one of these delicious vegan dips instead!

For more cheesy fun try using almonds instead of cashews. Some co-ops have fresh ground nut butters if like me you have no food processor.

Maybe I'd try the cashew dip, but there is a LARGE difference between homemade and store bought hummus. You can make it lighter, fluffier, with more lemon juice and garlic. YUM!

The first one sounds good, then you lost me at smokey and cheater's... smokey means "tastes like bacon" to me, and I prefer to put in the work to make something tastier rather than cheat. But you got me back at mango - and you are my new best friend for showing me a vegan version of nutella!!! That is one thing I didn't realize how much I would miss when I gave up dairy. I will make it tonight!!!
For those of you who long for milk chocolate without the factory farming I mix almond milk into my dark chocolate, heat it, stir it, and refrigerate it until I am ready to eat it. It has amazing creamy flavour without the cruelty!

Thanks- love hummus but also like the spicier ideas. have never tried the cashew cream. I love Diaya vegan cheese. The Havarti w/ Jalepeno is decadent & adds kick to pretty much everything.
