Vegan Dip Recipes For Finger Foods, Parties, Snacks

Spread the love

These delicious vegan dip recipes rock every occasion, from outdoor barbecues and parties to casual snacks. A huge homerun when it comes to plant-based eating.


One of the key things about these delicious vegan dip recipes beyond how tasty they are, is that they’re geared toward health. They rock vitamins, minerals, protein, fiber, slews of polyphenols and antioxidants.

Every one, including hummus, salsa, pesto, and baba ganoush, packs a powerful punch when it comes to enhancing food.

Such as falafel, for instance, or tiny pita sandwiches; stacked vegan lettuce wraps with sweet potato fries; or an appetizer plate jam-packed with finger foods.

They’re all much tastier with a dip!

All organic, vegan, and gluten-free.

1. Homemade Hummus 

Rich and succulent bowl of swirled organic hummus and pita on a cutting board topped with chickpeas, paprika, green onions, and extra-virgin olive oil.
Vegan hummus is a favorite.

Hummus is a wildly popular Middle Eastern food enormously adored by both vegans and vegetarians alike.

As an excellent source of plant-based protein and fiber, it rocks tons of delicious meals.

It’s also a dip for every occasion.

2. Homemade Salsa

Homemade salsa is not only one of the best dips ever, it’s also one of the healthiest when you make it fresh.

It rocks over 20 bioactive compounds in cilantro, onion, garlic, pepper, and lime.

Serve with stone ground chips, bean dip, and guacamole.

3. Vegan Pesto

Homemade pesto is rich.

I have a weak spot for pesto that goes way back. My friends and I use to devour it en masse with crackers and chips way back in middle school.

It’s not only delicious, it’s a flexible dip, everything from sundried tomato and mint to creamy arugula walnut.

Not to mention mini pizzas, crudites, and tiny pasta cups.

Another fave of mine is organic baba ganoush. It’s one the tastiest ever and a real treat for aubergine fans.   

It rocks pita, crudite, crackers, chips, falafel, and more. Top with olives, parsley, veggies, a splash of olive oil.

5. Homemade Guacamole

A festive bowl of creamy guacamole surrounded by tomatoes, peppers, avocados, onions, jalapenos, and limes.
Fresh guacamole is wildly popular.

In my experience you can never go wrong with a delicious homemade guacamole. The stuff goes fast.

It also boosts the bioavailability of nutrients in salsa when they’re served together.

According to one report, the sesame in tahini is a powerhouse.
