Party Food: Vegan Sour Cream Dip

Party Food: Vegan Sour Cream Dip

I try to eat pretty healthy, but when it comes to party food I tend to go for convenience. This vegan sour cream dip comes together in minutes!

My friend Ally moved to Philadelphia a year ago, and I miss her like crazy. She came through town last weekend, and our plan was to sit up watching episodes of Dr. Who and gabbing, so I decided a little party food was in order!

I wanted to make comfort food, because Ally had been on the road all day driving, and because I like to serve party food that kind of smacks of a 1970s shindig without the Jello mold.

My recipe calls for pre-packaged vegan sour cream, but if you want your party food to be a little bit less processed, you can make your own vegan sour cream! This recipe from Whole Foods is cashew-based and super simple, or you can try a tofu-based vegan sour cream recipe. I haven’t made vegan sour cream in ages, though. Do you guys have a favorite one?

I wish that I could take credit for serving the veggies in those cute little teacups, but it’s based on an idea that I saw on a party food board on Pinterest. They served carrot and celery sticks in mason jars! My sticks were a little bit shorter, so I just grabbed tea cups instead. Either way, it’s a festive presentation, isn’t it?

  3. David and I were just talking about sour cream dip recently. Neither of us have had it since before we went vegan. I used to love it with a big bag of potato chips! Thanks for the recipe. It looks terrific!
