Caramelized Onion

  • 1 large Yellow Onion, sliced into rings
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbs Balsamic Vinegar and/or Veg Broth

Sour Cream Dip

  • 16oz package Extra Firm Tofu
  • 5 tsp Lemon Juice
  • 3 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 tsp Maple Syrup
  • 1 tsp Vegan Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/3 cup dried Chopped Onions
  • 2 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Celery Seed
  • 1/4 tsp Paprika
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • Dash of Black Pepper


  1. Slice onion into rings and add to a wide-bottomed frying pan
  2. Sprinkle 3/4 tsp salt over the onion and set the burner heat to medium-low
  3. Do not add oil, or stir, or otherwise touch the onions for at least 20-30 minutes
  4. While the onions are slowly cooking, drain tofu and add to blender
  5. Add lemon juice, vinegar, worcestershire, maple syrup, dried onions, onion powder, celery seed, paprika, salt, and pepper and blend until smooth - stopping to scrape down the sides as needed
  6. Add salt if needed to taste - but remember the onions have salt too
  7. After 30 minutes on the stove, stir the onions and add the balsamic (or water/veg broth) to deglaze the pan - 1 tablespoon at a time.
  8. Scrape up the browned bits on the bottom and stir into the onions
  9. Allow to cook another 5 or 10 min at a time, then stir, add broth, scrape, repeat until onions are desired color - a deep golden brown
  10. Add onions to blender and pulse a few times to mix
  11. Serve with your favorite veggies or chips
