This recipe comes from Amazing Soy by Dana Jacobi (William Morrow Publishers, 2001) Of this recipe, Dana writes “This version of the classic onion dip contains a fraction of the sodium in the regular version made with soup mix. Plus you get all the good phytochemicals found in alliums.”


  • 1 cup onion marmalade (see recipe above)
  • 1/2 cup (4 ounces) silken tofu
  • 1/2 cup soy sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • freshly ground black pepper


  1. Combine the marmalade, tofu, sour cream, and lemon juice in a food processor and puree.  Season to taste with pepper.
  2. Transfer the dip to a bowl, cover, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, to allow the flavors to meld and the dip to set up.  Serve chilled.  (This dip will keep for up to 4 days, covered and refrigerated.)
