    Ingredients
    • 1tablespoon macadamia nut oil(or coconut nut oil)
    • 2 yellow onionspeeled, cut in half and thinly sliced
    • 28oz packets Almond Cream Cheese Style Spread
    • 1 juice of lemon(about 1/4 cup)
    • 2tablespoons chivesfresh, minced
    • 2tablespoons parsleyfresh, minced
    • 3tablespoons dried onion powder
    • 1tablespoon dried garlic powder
    • salt and pepperto taste
    Instructions
    1. In a sauté pan over medium heat, combine the macadamia nut oil and thinly sliced yellow onions. Cook until caramelized, adding a dash of water during the process to keep the onions from charring. Once they have turned a golden color and are soft, remove from heat and cool completely.
    2. In a medium bowl, combine 2 packages almond cream cheese with the juice of one lemon, minced chives and parsley, onion powder, and garlic powder. Stir in 2-3 tablespoons of water to thin.
    3. Fold in caramelized onions and season with salt and pepper to taste. If the dip is really thick, simply add a dash more water. Serve chilled with Roasted Red White & Blue Crisps.
    Recipe Notes

    Not all almond cream cheese products sold in stores are created equal. You can make your own cream by soaking almonds (or cashews or macadamia nuts) in water for at least 8 hours, rinsing, then blending with a bit of fresh water. If you do so, maybe add a little more lemon juice to this recipe to enhance the tart “sour cream” flavor found in traditional French onion dips.
