Now let's take a look at which products we can replace with others without any problems.
You don't want to use lentils with the vegan cheeseburger dip. That is absolutely no problem. You can either use TVP (textured vegetable protein) here, which you have to soak beforehand.
You can also use purchased vegan ground meat. I try to use more unprocessed foods, and I love the consistency of lentils in this dip.
You could also sauté and use chopped mushrooms.
Can you eat cashews or do you want to make the dip a little cheaper, budget friendly? Here I recommend that you use the same amount of sunflower seeds.
I currently love cooking with sunflower seeds, the last time I used it to prepare my pesto cream sauce. And it turned out incredibly creamy.
If you don't tolerate legumes, or especially white beans, then use more cashews or sunflower seeds instead.
There are two ways to substitute soy sauce. For one, you can use gluten-free soy sauce, also known as tamari. Or you can use the soy-free alternative coconut aminos.
There are so many different diets. Here I would like to show you how you can adapt this vegan cheeseburger lentil dip to other diets such as gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free, keto, paleo.
To make the lentil dip gluten-free, you basically only have to use coconut aminos or tamari instead of soy sauce.
A nut-free vegan lentil dip can be made with sunflower seeds, so you can make a dip quickly and budget-friendly.
Instead of the soy sauce, use coconut aminos and you've created a great soy-free vegan dip.
Keto is all about cutting down on carbohydrates. Instead of the lentils, I recommend you use mushrooms here, if you dice them and fry them, they are a great alternative.
Instead of the white beans, use more cashews or sunflower seeds. Instead of the soy sauce, use coconut aminos.
With the Paleo diet it is a matter of dispute whether legumes are included or not.
If you don't consume legumes, use mushrooms as you do with the keto variant and more cashews instead of white beans.
Start cooking the lentils until they are firm to the bite according to the package instructions.
In the meantime, chop the onion and garlic and fry them vigorously in a coated pan, adding a sip of water every now and then.
Now take a high speed blender and add the remaining ingredients except for the pickles. And blend until you get an incredibly creamy sauce.
Now add these to the fried onions and stir until they thicken.
Take the dip off the stove and stir in the chopped pickles and lentils. Let the dip cool down.
Garnish the dip with chopped pickles, parsley, green onions, or coconut bacon.
Prepare in advance
This vegan cheeseburger lentil dip is also great to prepare in advance.
I recommend making the dip the day before. And take them out of the refrigerator about 30 minutes before serving so that it is not too cold.
This lentil dip is so versatile that there are different ways to serve it.
You can serve it with bread chips, simply cut bread into very fine slices and toast it in the oven.
Dipping vegetable sticks in this vegan lentil dip also tastes great.
Use the dip as a spread and prepare a great sandwich, which you can eat on the go and is suitable as a school lunch or for work.
Do you have leftovers and don't know what to do with them?
How to refrigerate it?
This dip can be kept in a sealed container in the refrigerator for about 5 days. So you can eat the dip during the week, whether as a snack or as a sandwich for lunch, that's up to you.
How to freeze it?
You can also freeze the lentil dip really well. To do this, simply pour the dip in portions into containers and freeze. To thaw, take the dip out of the freezer the evening before and thaw it in the fridge.
If the dip is too thick and firm for you, stir in some plant-based milk such as almond milk. Make sure you are using unsweetened almond milk.
If the lentil dip is too runny for you, let it thicken a little longer in the pan.
Bring variety to the dip and add diced tomatoes or other vegetables.
Don't cook the lentils too soft, we want something to bite on in the dip. In addition, always taste a lentil to see whether it is soft enough, but not so soft that it gets mushy.
