15 Vegan Dips For When You’re Sick Of Hummus

It is a well known fact throughout the foodie universe that chips and dip can make or break a party. Because you don't want to be known as that person who may or may not be overly dependent on store-bought hummus, check out these vegan dip ideas compiled by Spoon University the next time you want to host a get-together. This list covers all your basics — guac, bean dip, classic salsa, and even edamame dip — but with a deliciously vegan twist. This way, all your friends, no matter what their dietary restrictions, can enjoy the blissful joy that is piling a chip high with toppings, and living your best life.

Hummus is a great vegan snack, but variety is the spice of life. As someone who is lactose intolerant, hummus is usually my go-to dip at parties, but it has gotten a bit old. Not to mention, it is not as healthy as one might think.

Many people think that being vegan means that you eat boring food with no variety, but that is simply not true. These delicious and creative alternatives to hummus will be loved by vegans and meat eaters alike.
