This Vegan Yogurt Dill Dip is cooling, fresh and creamy. Fragrant dill, silken tofu, and sauerkraut blended together creates a yogurt-like flavour without having to buy vegan yogurt or spending the time to make it yourself. You’ll still get the wonderful probiotics and tangy fermented flavour in a quick and easy way!

Why use Sauerkraut and Silken Tofu instead of vegan yogurt?
I have yet to find a really neutral vegan yogurt for the savory dips and sauces I used to love. But I find that combining silken tofu and raw, unpasturised sauerkraut gives me the tangy flavour and neutral creamy mouthfeel without any strange sweet or off flavours.
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.
How to Make Vegan Yogurt Dill Dip
This Vegan Yogurt Dill Dip is super simple. In a blender, combine 6oz or half a package of extra firm silken tofu (I used Mori-nu brand), 1/4 cup of raw, unpasturized sauekraut along with the juice, 1/4 teaspoon of onion powder, 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder and just a pinch of dried dill. You can always increase the amount of dried dill if you don’t find the flavour strong enough. Then blend until the mixture is completely smooth.
If you have fresh dill instead of dried, you can use 1/2 teaspoon to a full teaspoon of finely chopped dill.
