Fat Tuesday!!

We’re living it up here for Fat Tuesday, eating more than we should and staying warm while iced in.  Had to share this little beauty of a treat – Sour Cream and Onion Dip.  All vegan food is not healthy, and chips and dip should definitely be reserved for occasional use, but it IS Fat Tuesday!!!  We won’t have any issues polishing the dip off before tomorrow, as it’s mostly gone already (and we didn’t even share with the kids). . .

Sour Cream and Onion Dipmardi-gras-584508_1280

1/4 c non-dairy sour cream

1/4 c vegan mayo

3/4 T lemon juice

1 1/4 t onion powder

1 1/4 t dried minced onion

1/4 t salt

Mix all of the ingredients in an airtight container and try not to eat it all in the first sitting.  If successful, tuck it in the back of the fridge to hide it from others.

I recommend keeping Susan Voisin’s MiracleNaise mayo on hand.  In addition to being oil free and soy free, it only has a few ingredients, the most important of which is a little patience.  It just takes a few minutes to repeatedly scrape down the sides of the blender to blend long enough to make the mayo creamy.  I add a little extra water and omit the xanthan gum, and it thickens nicely with refrigeration.

I don’t have a go to sour cream recipe, so if you do, please share it in the comments.

Stay tuned for a Frozen ice cream cake recipe- perfect for icy weather, a birthday, or just a normal day (if you’re one of those obnoxiously annoying fun parents).
