Instant Yogurty Dill Dip

What do you do when you need vegan yogurt but you don’t have time to make it and you don’t want to go outside and buy some? You cheat with probiotic foods that you already have in your fridge! At least, that’s what I did when I wanted a creamy cooling dip to go with my fresh and spicy gochugaru dip to go with the BEST vegan fried chicken (ever).

Sauerkraut is such a versatile ingredient. It’s naturally fermented so it contains lots of lactic acid. Combined with silken tofu, it makes a great savory yogurt alternative in dips and sauces. Add some onion, garlic and dill, and you’ve got an instant yogurty dip that goes great with vegan fried chicken, on grilled veggies and kabob, or vegan chicken shwarma. You’ll just need a blender and a few minutes.

    Back in the day growing up, my Mom had a wonderful Dill dip recipe that everyone would ask her how to make. We always served it with baby carrots and HAD to have green pepper sticks. They just tasted so RIGHT with that dip ?.

    I have made Mom’s Dill dip a few times over the years, mostly for carry ins or holiday gatherings. I haven’t thought about trying to veganize her recipe, which is based on sour cream and mayonnaise, until now.

    Mary, with your recipe you have lit a candle in my soul. You have inspired me. I miss my mom. I miss her foods. I have her recipes. I can try to veganize my comfort foods. Thank-you Mary for your wonderfully creative recipes. And the more tofu the better! ❤

      Susan, that’s so heartbreaking and heart-warming at the same time. I hope you’ll be able to veganize your mom’s recipe. I think cashew sour cream might do the trick. <3 Thanks so much for reading 🙂
