Dairy Free Onion Dip and Superbowl Sunday

Superbowl Sunday is this weekend…perfect excuse for a party!

My husband has been invited to a ‘Boys only’ Superbowl Party, so I have decided to have one of our own with the boys.

Not that I am at all interested in football throughout the season. Although, I have to admit, I like watching the Superbowl…or is it the half time event that appeals to me? Either way, the party is on!

My boys have been watching the lead up to the finale and are also keen to watch the showdown between the New York Giants and the New England Patriots. Michael is cheering on the Patriots and Matthew says it’s “the Giants all the way!” The boys are each inviting a friend to join in on the fun!

What’s a party without party fare!

Munchies will include: Matthew’s favourite, Lay’s Salt and Vinegar Chips and Michael’s favourite, Ruffles Rippled Chips with Dairy Free Onion Dip. (recipe featured below)

Homemade Allergen Friendly Pita Chips and Dip will also be on the menu. Although, I think I have since finished this dip and will have to whip up a new one! (recipes from EveryDay Italian by Giada De Laurentiis)

Michael loves these Pita Chips…as do some of his friends! The White Bean Dip is great for dipping veggies in too! (It is green due to the overabundance of parsley I like to add!)

Tip: When purchasing pita bread for the Homemade Allergen Friendly Pita Chips, make sure to read the ingredient list for possible allergens. I used Pita Gourmet.

Main dishes include: Michael has chosen Allergen Friendly Chicken Wings  with a Dairy Free Dip (combination of Tofutti Sour Supreme, minced garlic, dried oregano and italian seasoning, salt and pepper to taste). Matthew has chosen Slow Cooker Sticky Ribs . There will also be some cut up veggies for the dips.

Dessert: I am going to be creative with my Dairy,Egg,Soy, and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Decadent Brownies. Stay tuned for a posting next week. Just in time for Valentine’s Day!

A couple of years ago, Michael took an interest in Onion Dip. “Mommy, can you try to make me an Onion Dip for my chips?” When I ask him today why he wanted me to make it he replied, “I don’t know. I just wanted to try it.”

Well, I am glad he did because it is a winner!

I love the Barefoot Contessa! Her Pan-Fried Onion Dip is fantastic! It is easily adapted to satisfy and fool even those without dairy allergies or intolerances.

Dairy Free Onion Dip

Follow the Barefoot Contessa’s recipe for Pan-Fried Onion Dip making the following substitutions:

4 tbsp of Earth Balance for the unsalted butter
1/2 cup Tofutti Non-Dairy Spread for the cream cheese
1 cup Tofutti Sour Supreme for the sour cream and mayonaise

Enjoy with your favourite chips!

    • I know! Truly a treat for Michael…I have a hard time finding Tofutti products in my town. Made it last night so the flavours will be perfect! Not sure if it will last till Sunday’s game though!

    • Hi Chelsea! Thanks! Not sure about where you saw the guacamole, but that sure would be another tasty option. Barefoot Contessa has a yummy recipe for that too…maybe that’s where you saw it.
