Why This Recipe Works 

I’ve made this vegan dip so many times and it’s always a real winner. Make it for your next party, BBQ, or picnic and I’m sure it will be gone super fast. I’ve had so many people asking for the recipe. 

I just love the combination of the sweet dates, the cream cheese, and the oriental curry. Usually I’m a big fan of hummus, but this vegan cream cheese dip is great if you feel like having something else for a change. 

It tastes just perfect with roasted bread, crackers, or vegetable sticks. And I don’t think anyone would think that the dip is completely dairy-free and 100 percent vegan. 

Besides, the recipe couldn’t be any easier and you need only 5 minutes for the preparation. All you need is a handful of ingredients and a food processor or blender that does all the work for you. 

What Goes Into This Recipe:

  • Dates – I’ve used pitted dates to save time.
  • Plant-Based Cream Cheese – my favorite is vegan almond-based cream cheese.
  • Plant-Based Sour Cream – I’ve used soy-based vegan sour cream.
  • Curry – mild curry powder.
  • Cumin – you need ground cumin.
  • Garlic – I used a medium-sized clove of garlic.

Recipe Notes:

  • The dip tastes great with roasted bread (either in the oven or in the toaster) or with crackers. I also think it’s great with vegetable sticks. In the summer it also makes a great dip for BBQs or picnics.
  • If you’d like to add a bit of spiciness, season it with red pepper flakes to your personal liking.
  • Or you could add some paprika powder together with the curry powder and the cumin.
  • I like to sprinkle the dip with some freshly chopped parsley for even more flavor. 

Frequently Asked Questions:

How Long Does this Dip Last?

Stored in an airtight container, the dip can be kept in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.

Can You Freeze This Dip?

No, I do not recommend freezing this dip as this changes the consistency and it is no longer as nice and creamy.
